This Warren Zevon documentary is devastating

If you haven’t seen it before, watch this VH1 documentary about Warren Zevon’s final year when he lived with terminal cancer while recording a final album, awaited the arrival of his twin grandchildren, turned in a great final appearance on Letterman (the whole hour), and felt deep sorrow and deeper love.

It doesn’t make for easy watching. I played it in the background at work earlier this week, and that may have been a mistake. His reaction to learning that his grandchild would have the middle name “Warren” is priceless, really something special. Reading his diary entries can be particularly heart-wrenching.

I hadn’t realized “Keep Me in Your Heart for a While” was his final song. That’s just… wow. Wow.

Enjoy every sandwich, friends. Enjoy every sandwich.
