Happy birthday Bruce!

just a tribute to W. Zevon

Warren Zevon (January 24, 1947 – September 7, 2003)

Lo confesso:
questo Sig. Warren non sapevo neanche che fosse nato, e quindi per me è ora strano sapere della sua scomparsa.
Ma voglio usare questo fatto per chiedere, per chiedermi:

Me and my two kids always sing this song on long car trips. Seems to me it’s a great “story” song and the ending nicely sneaks up on you.
This is supposed to be the “rollicking roadhouse version”, so feel free to add clinking glasses and unintelligeable shouting… Bobby Keys, eat your heart out!
