Wry, absurdist ?Excitable Boy? of rock was music fixture in ?70s and ?80s Warren Zevon: "If you're lucky, people like something you do early and something you do just before you drop dead."
By Michael E. Ross MSNBC
Sept. 8 ? Warren Zevon, the iconoclastic singer-songwriter whose music often combined dark, mordant, absurdist wit with some of the more memorable melodies of the modern rock era, died Sunday in his Los Angeles-area home, his manager said Monday. Zevon, a mainstay of the Los Angeles music scene of the 1980s and of the national scene since then, announced in late August 2002 that he had mesothelioma, a rare, inoperable cancer that had ravaged his lungs and spread to his liver. He was 56.
