This week marks the 10th anniversary of the death of Warren Zevon, the legendary singer/songwriter whom I admired not only for his musical talents, but for his great sense of humor too. Warren passed away from lung cancer at age 56 due to mesothelioma, but exacerbated by years of being a smoker.
Here's what Warren thought after receiving his frightful diagnosis at such a relatively young age.
Folks, don't let your shit become fucked up. Don't let it happen to you before your time is due. Make sure to see your physician for a yearly check-up, and for God's sake, attempt to quit smoking before it's too late, and you find yourself writing a song about the consequences.
