This album was his last. Diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2002, instead of seeking treatment, Warren Zevon went into the studio for the last time.
This album has moments of beauty, moments of despair, glimmers of the classic Zevon, a storm of emotion, and graveyard humor that has the ability to break your heart. Also, the Knocking on Heaven's Door cover is amazing.Guest appearances by his closest friends include Billy Bob Thornton, Bruce Springsteen, Jackson Browne, Tom Petty, Don Henley, and Joe Walsh. If you're already a Warren Zevon fan, this album is a must have. If you have yet to hear his music, I suggest Excitable Boy and Bad Luck Streak in Dancing School first, just to give you a foundation. This is more than just a rebound gimmick album to try and kickstart an ailing career. This is a goodbye album, a farewell for friends, fans, and family, and the result is one last final beautiful album.
