Happy Birthday, Mr. Excitable Boy

Well, today's Warren Zevon's birthday, and to honor his memory I thought I'd play a couple of my favorites.
The first two are the ones he's known for, Werewolves of London, and Excitable Boy:

And, finally, here's Warren performing the song My Shit's Fucked Up, which he wrote when he found out that he had cancer and was dying. It's brutally honest and to the point. And it's one of my favorite WZ songs, listening to Warren run right at the brick wall, handling it the only way he has left, through a song.
