Still Haven’t Found What You’re Looking For? (10)

It’s been a while since I posted any of the interesting searches that happen here. Busy writing two books and editing another for a friend, writing new music, performing it in public for the first time, and generally trying to jump onto the way-too-fast merrygoround.

Warren Zevon Diagnosed with Inoperable Cancer

Excitable Boy Warren Zevon, 55, (“Werewolves of London”, “Excitable Boy”, “Poor, Poor, Pitiful Me”) was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer last month, according to a Reuters news release.

Zevon has collaborated with the Everly Brothers, R.E.M., and Jackson Browne, but his biting wit was best displayed in his solo works spanning the last 33 years. Warren is heading for the studio for a final recording session.

The same Reuters release says he will be “spending his remaining weeks with his two adult children, son Jordan and daughter Ariel.”
