As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, one of the coolest dudes I’ve ever interviewed was Warren Zevon. He was just so damn nice. And smart. And Warren freakin’ Zevon.

I talked to him back in ’92 when he was touring with the Odds as his backup band, promoting a fine album called Mr. Bad Example.

At one point in the conversation, knowing that he’d worked on the score for the TV series Drug Wars: The Camarena Story, I asked him about composing for film, and if it was more difficult than making albums.

Not surprisingly, his answer blew my question away.
