#29. Warren Zevon – ‘Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner’

It’s David Letterman’s favourite song.

And it’s better than Apocalypse Now. Zevon was one of the great storytellers of our time, but he was too dirty and macabre for your parents’ tastes when they were young, so you probably have no idea about this rock n’ roll Bukowski.
