Henry Wagons to Honor Warren Zevon in Accidentally Like A Martyr

Henry Wagons, together with Musical Director Lachlan Bryan, will explore the music of Warren Zevon in the new show for Melbourne ‘Zevon – Accidentally Like A Martyr’.

American singer-songwriter Warren Zevon was born in Los Angeles on 24 January 1947 and died in Los Angeles on 7 September 2003. Some of his songs were hits for himself but many for others.

His best known hit is ‘Werewolves of London’.

Zevon’s career was going nowhere until Linda Ronstadt picked up his song ‘Hasten Down The Wind’ in 1976.

Her next album ‘Simple Dreams’ in 1977 contained two more Zevon songs ‘Carmelita’ and ‘Poor Poor Pitiful Me’.

Then in 1978 Linda covered ‘Mohammed’s Radio’ for her ‘Living In The USA’ album.

Warren’s biggest album was ‘Excitable Boy’ in 1978.

Warren Zevon had a serious problem with alcohol and withdrew for a number of years from the music industry. Around this time he fronted the band Hindu Love Gods which was R.E.M. with Zevon instead of Michael Stipe. The one-off album featured covers of songs by Prince, Bo Diddley and Robert Johnson.

Zevon – Accidentally Like A Martyr by Henry Wagons is at the Athenaeum Theatre 2 from October 16.
