Is this thing on? Are you guys still here? I just wanted
Fr 9/5: John Malkovich, Steve Earle performs in a tribute
to Warren Zevon
Maybe...so set the recording devices!
I watched this. It was a nice gesture, but I found the
performance disappointing. What did the rest of you think of
I agree - nice gesture, but...he's no Warren Zevon, that's for
I thought it was even missing something from the EES version
he did. <shrug>
BUT...at least, he did it, keeping the music alive. I think
that counts more than the execution.
I really enjoyed it. BUT... I'm a big Steve Earle fan. As a
matter of fact, I'd have to say that he's inherited the mantle
of my favorite living singer-songwriter. Seriously, I'd say tunes
like "Tom Ames' Prayer" are about as good as it gets and even a
bit, dare I say, Zevonesque.
It would be cool if Steve became a "go to" musical guest on the
Late Show, now that he's living in New York.
