Warren William Zevon was an American rock singer-songwriter and musician.
You used to be the best to make life be real to me, and I hope that you're still out there and you're like you used to be
That's my only active wish. I think if I sang like Don Henley, this would be a lot more agreeable business.
Recording at home enables one to eliminate the demo stage, and the presentation stage in the studio, too.
I'll sleep when I'm dead.
I loved Hendrix. I mean, really, really loved him. As if he were one of the great classical composers. And he was. That's how I saw him.
I don't learn so good, no matter how good the teacher is.
I had a good guitar, and I was a young, young kid.
I missed jazz, kind of. And by the time I came to it in life, it was too intimidating to enjoy thoroughly.
Dylan doesn't have to make Blonde On Blonde every time.
Well, I don't think it ever did, but in the early '60s I got interested in folk music.
I mean, I haven't been completely lacking in some enjoyment of Chuck Berry or Buddy Holly. But I just didn't pay attention to that period of music, obviously.
You had to go to a different part of town from where I was to get Muddy Waters singles. I had him on singles.
Yeah, I don't like, um, I'm not interested in rock 'n' roll piano. I find it a little grating.
My first album is like a terrible John Hammond album, with drums.
Mutineer is the first album of mine without a demo stage.
It took me 10 years to realize that I don't know 'em, 10 years to realize that it's possible to learn them, then another 10 years to learn how to do things.
I'm not a big jazz fan.
I remember certain lines and whose they are.
I played a lot of real normal, straight sessions.
I wish I sang better.
