Told in the words of his musical accomplices, fellow-travellers, friends, and lovers, 'I'll Sleep When I'm Dead' is an intimate and unusual biography of fabled song-writer Warren Zevon, the musical force behind such dark, witty rock-and-roll classics as 'Werewolves of London' and 'Roland, the Headless Thompson Gunner'.
Narrated by Crystal Zevon, Zevon's former (and only) wife, it draws on interviews with Jackson Browne, Tom Petty, Emmylou Harris, Linda Rondstadt, Stevie Nicks, Lindsay Buckingham, the Everly Brothers, and a host of other denizens of Southern California's influential rock scene to tell the story of the original 'Excitable Boy': literary hoodlum, OCD sufferer, brilliant song-writer, and rock-and-roll icon.
