That time I asked Warren Zevon what his idea of a great movie soundtrack might be

By Steve Newton

I only got to interview Warren Zevon once, back in 1992, when he was touring behind his Mr. Bad Example album.

Man, I wish I could have interviewed Warren Zevon a few more times.

Anyway, at the time of our chat he’d already composed the music for a TV miniseries (Drug Wars: The Camarena Story) and a Tales From the Crypt-type segment of a TV movie (Two-Fisted Tales), so we got to talkin’ about film music.

At one point in the interview I asked him what his idea of a great movie soundtrack might be, and he went all Bernard Hermann on my ass.

Have a listen:

  2. Great stuff. Anything on WZ is good to see and read. Personal note: Mark Knopfler’s soundtrack to the movie Local Hero is a favorite of mine.
