Singer-songwriter Warren Zevon wrote and recorded many memorable songs over his
decade career in the music industry including such beloved classics as "Werewolves of
London," "Lawyers, Guns And Money" and "Mohammed's Radio." He was a "musician's musician"
who won acclaim from many of his contemporaries for his witty lyrics and ability to wrap
them in a musical package that often hid the dark subject matter beneath catchy hooks and
phrasings. When Zevon revealed he was suffering from cancer in 2002, a number of those
contemporaries such as Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty and Jackson Browne jumped at the
to work with Warren once more.
The resulting album, 2003's The Wind, ranks among Zevon's greatest works and even
two Grammys. Sadly, Warren had passed away before the awards were given out. A documentary
about the making of The Wind called Keep Me In Your Heart captured the
emotional recording process for a feature that ran on VH-1. Billy Bob Thornton, one of the
contributors to The Wind, narrates the documentary. If you've never seen it, we
highly recommend checking out this touching feature:
