Warren Zevon - Excitable Boy

Season 2, Ep. 17

Aaaaawhooooo! The full moon blinds on this episode about Warren Zevon's 1978 smash Excitable Boy and boy are we excited. The razor sharp laconic king of macabre song craft, Zevon turned in an album about werewolves, lawyers, guns, headless gunners, discos on the train tracks, bone cages, Johnny Carson, and somehow much more. Grab a handle or two of your favorite drink, and drift with us through this 1970s Los Angeles classic. Now hear this: "Excitable Boy," "Werewolves of London," "Lawyers, Guns and Money," and "Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner."
