Me on Zevon

If you'd like to see an example of something I did during my rock-historian days, the Varese Vintage reissue label has posted online my liner notes for its CD by Lyme & Cybelle, a duo that featured a pre-fame Warren Zevon. My own interest in music doesn't extend to Zevon's solo work (or to very much at all after 1968), but I liked the jangly pop tunes he did with Lyme & Cybelle, and I loved getting to interview Cybelle — now Broadway performer Laura Kenyon — and the great producer Bones Howe.
