Zevon Review

The Boston Globe reviews Warren Zevon's new album:

Zevon skillfully avoids falling into bathos on the new disc. He uses it as an opportunity to sum up a crazy, cataclysmic life that saw his escape from alcoholism (he quit drinking in 1980, but that didn't tone down his lyrics) and many romantic ups and downs.

I'm truly I missed "Inside Out: Warren Zevon" on VH1 (I had to pick up my wife at the airport and forgot to tape it). I'll catch a rerun to enjoy one of my favorite artists, though:

Zevon's gallows humor is captured in the VH1 documentary when he says, "I've dramatically outlived the predictions of the doctors. I'm beginning to feel like a fraud!"
