The Daily Walk with Love
— Warren Zevon really knew how to rock!
and his message about the high-profile
life of an intelligence agent
resonates with a lot of us: Zevon’s Mix,
“Lawyer’s Guns & Money” has a LOT of great music. The question
remains: was Warren Zevon secretly working for CIA?
(Hint: I’m not, I’m just a bit of a groupie.)

Was Warren Zevon Really
Working for the C.I.A.??
I want to be VERY clear that I have no direct ties to C.I.A., NSA or any intelligence agency whatsoever (actually I am a member of Anonymous). My DAD on the other hand was a WWII Marine officer who worked for several intelligence services including CIA, mainly as head and chief editor of a couple of translating sections. He left the Agency in 1961 to pursue his real love, teaching (Russian) language and literature. Dad passed on May 3, 2012, and I miss him terribly. [(Guys, a little black funds action, PLEASE!!)] Right now I am probably slightly more connected to Anonymous, the Unitarian-Universalist Service Committee, and in the past, the U2 people on Facebook than to any intelligence service. This spooky side to my existence has it so now I favor “Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner” as my favorite Zevon: [(Where are the hot C.I.A. or N.S.A. or, for that matter K.G.B. or ANY intelligence-type women when you need one??)]. Featured photo of Warren Zevon on the David Letterman Show courtesy of wn.com. Anyway email Paul Evans at email@example.com for friends or maybe even a relationship. I’m pretty lonely now and currently not talking with anyone, ladies, come and rescue me! Hope everyone is having a good weekend!!
TAKING BACK AMERICA: See another intelligence related article, Hillary Clinton, Huma Abedin and Saudi Arabia: Abedin’s husband, Anthony “Weiner surely is perverted and Huma Abedin and Clinton by association. The significant thing is Hillary’s ties through Huma Abedin with (the Saudi’s and) mid-east terrorism.” It was a clear conflict of interest: Huma Abedin lived 16 of her first 17 years in Saudi Arabia, and is tied into the Saudi royal family.
Warren William Zevon (January 24, 1947 – September 7, 2003 (thus, passing at age 56) was an American rock singer-songwriter and musician.
Zevon’s compositions include “Werewolves of London”, “Lawyers, Guns and Money”, “Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner” and “Johnny Strikes Up the Band”, all of which are featured on his third album, Excitable Boy (1978). Zevon also wrote major hits that were recorded by other artists, including “Poor Poor Pitiful Me”, “Accidentally Like a Martyr”, “Mohammed’s Radio”, “Carmelita”, and “Hasten Down the Wind”.
Along with his own compositions, Zevon recorded or performed occasional covers, including Allen Toussaint’s “A Certain Girl”, Bob Dylan’s “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” and Leonard Cohen’s “First We Take Manhattan”. He was a frequent guest on Late Night with David Letterman and the Late Show with David Letterman. Letterman later performed guest vocals on “Hit Somebody! (The Hockey Song)” with Paul Shaffer and members of the CBS Orchestra on Zevon’s album My Ride’s Here.
See Warren Zevon: the man behind the demons, The Guardian, August 1, 2013, by Hadley Freeman:
“The singer/songwriter, best known for ‘Werewolves of London,’ died 10 years ago next month. His family and friends, including the writer Stephen King, explain why, despite his dark side, they still miss him.”
“Zevon was an artist’s artist, relatively little known to the public but revered by the best of his contemporaries: Bob Dylan was a great admirer. Other fans included Jackson Browne, Bruce Springsteen, Ry Cooder, Emmylou Harris, Don Henley, Tom Petty, Dwight Yoakam, Billy Bob Thornton and T Bone Burnett, who played with Zevon on his last album. In Crystal Zevon’s 2007 biography of her late ex-husband, ‘I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead: the Dirty Life and Times of Warren Zevon,’ (Amazon.com, paperback or Kindle Edition, about $11), Springsteen writes, “[Warren] would write something that had real meaning, and it was funny, too. I always envied that part of his ability and talent.”
Warren Zevon’s Facebook page suggested Renegade (YouTube – 5:00), which captures Zevon’s soul very well. There’s a following song, Back In the High Life (YouTube – 3:13), which I’m sure resonates with a LOT of people who’ve been destroyed by the Bill Clinton – George W. Bush – Obama economic mess, too. Did you realize that 50 to 75 percent of Americans live paycheck to paycheck, now?? 78 percent of Americans now die in debt, and the average debt is $61,000. That’s not the America I remember! Just maybe, Donald Trump will fix it as much as it can be, let’s hope and pray.
See The History of Warren Zevon on ‘David Letterman’, Ultimate Classic Rock, by Michael Gallucci: “Zevon was a perennial favorite, appearing more than a dozen times. Not just because he wrote and sang some great songs, but because he was funny, self-deprecating and a cynical bastard — just like Letterman.” (with clip of Letterman show appearance)
See The Crackup and Resurrection of Warren Zevon, Rolling Stone, March 19, 1981, by Paul Nelson: if you want a good take on the way it was for Warren Zevon in about 1980, this would be a good place to find out how he almost destroyed himself through alcoholism but then got “clean” and resurrected his life.
Check out Warren Zevon’s Official website or his Official Warren Zevon Facebook page. If you’re “getting into” the music yet, you may wish to read Warren Zevon’s obituary from September 8, 2003 at the New York Times:
In summary, the New York Times says Zevon “came up with hard-boiled stories and tender confessions of love. …Behind Mr. Zevon’s stoic baritone, the music changed with its central instrument. His piano songs suggested marches, hymns and the harmonies of Aaron Copland, while his guitar songs connected rock, Celtic and country music.” His music was a pure expression of the man he was.
More than most of the artists we feature here on The Daily Walk with Love who’ve passed away, I love and respect Warren Zevon and his memory. Being “on the periphery” of espionage is something I feel we both understand, and it IS a hard life. Half the people judge or hate you, and nobody, not even the government, will help. So was Zevon actually C.I.A. or something like that? If he’s like me, the answer is no. He may have known some guys, of course, he was famous. But he Could have been C.I.A., don’t you think?
Want to buy some Zevon mp3’s? See what Amazon has to offer in Zevon music. The digital mp3 version of Excitable Boy, (which has all three of Zevon’s three big hits), is only $9.49. All of Amazon’s music is DRM (digital rights free) and is the only way I buy music any more.
