Warren Zevon: Roland The Headless Thompson Gunner

    I meant to comment on this the other day. Warren Zevon was a great artist. He's definitely missed.

    I saw him once in concert and it was one of those "amazingly good" experiences that come along every so often.

    Zevon also had a thing for guns, that's for sure. The poster (which was the back cover) for Bad Luck Streak in Dancing School, Zevon's 1980 release, is classic Zevon weirdness: On a polished wooden dance-hall floor, a pair of ballerina's pink beribboned slippers are intertwined with an Ingram MAC-11 Submachine gun, and surrounded by empty shell casings.

    It's the poster that hangs above my reloading bench, actually.
