Keep Me In Your Heart (For A While)
You just got to love a guy with the ability to see the lighter side of.. well, everything.
What will no doubt be Warren Zevon’s final album (titled “The Wind”) will be released next Tuesday and it contains a version of an old Dylan song that, to be honest, has been done to death (no pun intended) – however Zevon doing a version now pretty much sums up why I appreciate the man so much.
Just under a year ago doctors told Zevon that he was suffering terminal cancer and had 3 months to live. Appearing on The Late Show not long after that Zevon told Letterman that the news had changed his outlook on life and stated that “He enjoys every sandwich”. He then set out on a short tour and then to the recording studio to record what is probably the first ever album recorded by an artist who knew their death was imminent.
So, what’s the Dylan song he’s covered? Knocking on heaven’s door.
