Requiescat in pacé, that's all she wrote.

Today is the anniversary of Warren Zevon's untimely 2003 passing due to cancer. I love this song, I love this songwriter (who was TOTALLY underrated), and he was a fascinating human being. A recovering alcoholic/addict like me. This video clip is warm and wonderful and heartbreaking. He gathered all of his musician friends to help him record his final album, "The Wind," when he knew he was dying. "These wheels keep turnin' but they're running out of steam. Keep me in your heart for a while...."
