Overview

When Warren Zevon died in 2003, he left behind a rich catalog of dark, witty rock 'n' roll classics, including "Lawyers, Guns and Money," "Excitable Boy," and the immortal "Werewolves of London." He also left behind a fanatical cult following and veritable rock opera of drugs, women, celebrity, genius, and epic bad behavior. As Warren once said, "I got to be Jim Morrison a lot longer than he did."

Narrated by his former wife and longtime co-conspirator, Crystal Zevon, this intimate and unusual oral history draws on interviews with Bruce Springsteen, Stephen King, Bonnie Raitt, and numerous others who fell under Warren's mischievous spell. Told in the words and images of the friends, lovers, and legends who knew him best, I'll Sleep When I'm Dead captures Warren Zevon in all his turbulent glory.

What People are Saying About This

Bruce Springsteen

“A moralist in cynic’s clothing, Zevon nails a part of the American character rarely captured in pop music.”

Dave Barry

“This is an extraordinary book — unflinchingly honest, scarily funny, relentlessly cynical and always immensely entertaining. Just like Warren Zevon.”

Jackson Browne

“A harrowing ride through the backstreets of the L.A. music business with the King of Song Noir.”

Gore Vidal

“Warren Zevon...was one of the most interesting writers of the era, and certainly ahead of his time. ”
