Warren Zevon - "I Feel Every Needle" - Episode 47

The ABC's of Rock Podcast

Wrapping up the alphabet with a true musical genius. How and why Warren Zevon isn't in the Rock 'N Roll HOF is beyond me. Hopefully one day his contributions will be fully appreciated by the gatekeepers over there. On this episode I dig deep into his catalogue from the 70's through the 80's to curate my top 10 underrated/under-appreciated songs from Warren Zevon. Let's celebrate this rare master of the craft!I do not own the rights to any of the music played on this podcast. The musicians or the music labels own the copyright.

Bonus - Jackson Browne + Warren Zevon 1976

The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast

This is a great radio performance from Dec. 8, 1976 featuring Jackson Browne & Warren Zevon. They accompany each other on their respective songs, and it makes for a lovely, intimate unplugged concert. The Offender meets the Pretender.

The Warren Zevon Episode

Charlie Likes Music

Be prepared. This is my most meandering episode yet, like all over the place. It's Warren Zevon's birthday and I'm tired and I kind of just let loose. Maybe that's ok and maybe that's not. So if you want to hear me swear a lot, this is the episode for you. Oh, also, I am a Warren Zevon fan, but I might say some things that are not nice about him, so be warned... www.charlieshortmusic.com www.patreon.com/charlielikesmusic

Warren Zevon - Excitable Boy

Now Hear This

Aaaaawhooooo! The full moon blinds on this episode about Warren Zevon's 1978 smash Excitable Boy and boy are we excited. The razor sharp laconic king of macabre song craft, Zevon turned in an album about werewolves, lawyers, guns, headless gunners, discos on the train tracks, bone cages, Johnny Carson, and somehow much more. Grab a handle or two of your favorite drink, and drift with us through this 1970s Los Angeles classic. Now hear this: "Excitable Boy," "Werewolves of London," "Lawyers, Guns and Money," and "Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner."Have something to say?

Rock's Backpages Ep. 67: Warren Zevon + Miles Davis' Bitches Brew + Dusty Springfield

Pantheon - The Music Podcast Network

After its enforced break, the RBP podcast returns for its first remotely-recorded episode. Mark, Barney & Jasper — all splendidly self-isolated, if not entirely locked down — are reunited online to run through everything that's new or free on Rock's Backpages. Noting the sad losses of Cristina, Manu Dibango and Fountains Of Wayne's Adam Schlesinger — all recent victims of the virus – RBP's troika discuss the week's new audio interview, a 2000 conversation with a supremely droll Warren Zevon, who talks to Adam Sweeting about Jackson Browne, David Geffen and Scottish Makar poet William Dunbar.From there, they move on to the week's free feature, which focuses on the 50th anniversary of Miles Davis' groundbreaking Bitches Brew. RBP's very own Three Degrees revisit Richard Williams' original Melody Maker review of the 1970 album, along with Al Aronowitz's account of hanging out with Miles in the fall of that year. Then it's on to featured writer Lois Wilson and her near-definitive account of the making of 1969's Dusty in Memphis and her profile of British rhythm & blues mainstay Georgie Fame.Among the new library pieces singled out for general discussion by Messrs. Pringle & Murison-Bowie are interviews with Elton John from 1971, Billy Cobham from 1974, Agnes Bernelle from 1985 and Kate Tempest from 2014…Pieces discussed: Warren Zevon audio, Bitches Brew, What Made Miles Davis Go Pop?, Rock is a white man's word, Dusty Springfield, Georgie Fame, Robert Finley, O.C. Smith, Elton John, Billy Cobham/Mahavishnu Orchestra, Jesse Winchester, Agnes Bernelle, Neil Young, Elvis' first love, Roots reggae, Papa Roach, Girls Aloud and Kate Tempest.
