Zevon Study

if you are looking for the story behind the man, not the man behind the story, this book is for you. Each and every album, song, musical relationship with those who influenced him and those who he influenced are studied. Warning, if you aren't a true Zevon fan, this might be a tough read.
I have found new meaning to his music because I better understand what motivated it. He was a complex dude...often his music was prophetic and, as George Plasketes says often, "noir".
Zevon quipped when nearing the end, "Enjoy every sandwich."
