Died: September 07, 2003 in Los Angeles, California, USA.
Warren William Zevon born in Chicago, Illinois, was a rock and roll musician and songwriter. He was noted for his offbeat, sardonic view of life which was reflected in his dark, sometimes humorous songs, which often incorporated political or historical themes.
In 1978, Warren Zevon released his breakthrough album, Excitable Boy, to critical acclaim and popular success.
Warren Zevon followed Excitable Boy with 1980s Bad Luck Streak in Dancing School.
Warren Zevon Death:
In 2002, after a long period of untreated illness and pain, Warren Zevon was encouraged by his dentist to see a physician; when he did so he was diagnosed with inoperable mesothelioma (a form of cancer associated with exposure to asbestos). Refusing treatments he believed might incapacitate him, Warren Zevon instead began recording his final album.
Warren Zevon stated that his illness was expected to be terminal within months after the diagnosis in the fall of 2002; however, he lived to see the birth of twin grandsons in June 2003 and the release of The Wind on August 28, 2003. Owing in part to the first VH1 broadcasts of Nick Read's documentary Warren Zevon: Keep Me In Your Heart, the album entered the national record charts at number 16, Zevon's highest placement since Excitable Boy. When his diagnosis became public, Zevon told the media that he just hoped to live long enough to see the next James Bond movie, Die Another Day, a goal he also accomplished.
Warren Zevon died on September 7, 2003, aged 56, at his home in Los Angeles, California. The Wind was certified gold by the RIAA in December 2003 and Zevon received five posthumous Grammy nominations, including Song Of The Year for the ballad "Keep Me In Your Heart". The Wind won two Grammys, with the album itself receiving the award for Best Contemporary Folk Album, while "Disorder in the House", Warren Zevon's duet with Bruce Springsteen, was awarded Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group With Vocal.
