Shooting blanks, one might say.
"But G.B., you just said you were stuck, did you not?"
Yeah, well, I'm a writer, I'm allowed to change my mind.
Shhhush, let me get this done.
I recently started listening to music while writing. Mostly it's been hard rock/heavy metal, which matches perfectly with the genre that I'm writing my latest in (crime). However, there have been times when I have drifted into other types of music. Some of it being alt/country like Dwight Yoakum, while others have been like the Texas Blues of Stevie Ray Vaughan. But I always liked a little quirkiness/black humor with my music and Warren Zevon certainly exemplified that with his songs.
Most of you probably know him from his major monster hit "Werewolves of London" from his wickedly black album "Excitable Boy". I kind of like that song but it has been really overkilled on the radio. My personal faves from the album are the title track and "Roland The Headless Thompson Gunner".
As you know, Warren Zevon left us way too soon from inoperable lung cancer in 2003. His last album "The Wind" featured a song that became my favorite song about death, or at least one that I could tolerate more than Eric Clapton's "Tears In Heaven".
So I think this is a suitable ending for this edition of the 2014 A-Z Blogging Challenge, two songs from Warren Zevon: "Roland The Headless Thompson Gunner" and "Keep Me In Your Heart".
