When Warren Zevon died in 2003, he left behind both a fanatical cult following and a rich catalog of dark, witty rock-n-roll classics that includes "Lawyers, Guns, and Money," "Excitable Boy," and the immortal "Werewolves of London." He also left a trove of misadventures and anecdotes, a veritable rock opera of drugs, women, celebrity, high times, and hard ways. As Warren once said, "I got to be Jim Morrison a lot longer than he did." I'll Sleep When I'm Dead is an intimate and unusual oral history of one of our most original and distinctive rock-and-roll antiheroes. Narrated by his former wife and longtime co-conspirator, Crystal Zevon, the book draws on over eighty interviews with the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Stephen King, Billy Bob Thornton, Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, and countless others who came under his mischievous spell. The result is a raucous and moving tale of love and obsession, creative genius and epic bad behavior. Told in the words and images of the friends, lovers, and legends who knew him best, I'll Sleep When I'm Dead captures Warren Zevon in all his turbulent glory.… (més)

A lot of wild stories along with some ugliness -- Zevon was a severe alcoholic. He was also just sort of a freak. And a genius. I found myself singing his songs all while reading this.

It's not something I'd recommend to anyone but a Zevon fan, but it's an intriguing peek into an era and one of the most unique and creative songwriters and performers of rock and roll. ( )

I began this book with a prejudice going both ways. I am a huge fan of his music and was excited to find out more about who he was, but my brother, also a fan, sent me the book after reading it himself and said that he had a hard time enjoying the music now after reading about what a mean, abusive maniac this man could be. So i turned the first page with a small amount of fear that my pedestal for this musical genius would be destroyed. In all honesty he had a large number of faults and dealt with many things poorly, but in the end I was pleased to find that my respect for the man and his legacy had not lessened. In fact it grew more to the point that I am building my collection of his entire discography. He was a treasure to the music world and he will be missed. ( )

This is a fascinating book it is essentially an oral history but it ends up feeling like a great work of fiction, not because it rings false but because so much happened in Warren Zevon's life. If you are at all interested in him then this book will interest you. ( )

Disturbing account of a deeply disturbed, brilliant man, told in the words of those who knew him. ( )

An interesting book composed of snippets of Warren Zevon remembrances (the good, the bad and the ugly) from family, friends, fellow musicians and acquaintences. I like his music but after reading this book I'm not so sure I would have liked the man. ( )
