The great Warren Zevon passed away 14 years ago today. He was an incredibly original musician and if the stories are to be believed, a clichéd even better person. This was epitomized publicly by his friendship, and numerous appearances, with David Letterman and Paul Shaffer; however, his last appearance was quite different. Warren had recently been diagnosed with that stupid jerkface cancer. While most youngsters might not necessarily grasp Warren's music immediately (aside from Werewolves of London), the wisdom Warren shared during that appearance can never be overstated. The specifics start at the 6:50 mark below, but the entire viewing is strongly recommended when you have the time.
Here's to hoping Warren's advice sinks into all the souls you love. Enjoy every sandwich friends.
