Music Monday: “Roland, the Headless Thompson Gunner”

The best songs are stories. This has always been the case even when the story is buried deep. If the story behind this song sounds interesting you can read about it here: Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner.

I’ve always enjoyed Warren Zevon and this is his final performance before his death a few years ago. Enjoy:

This song might get my blog that envied PG rating I’ve been longing for.

    Thank you for that, I haven’t seen this video before.
    I heard Werewolves of London on the radio when it first came out and bought the album, then loving every song on it almost instantly. Send Lawyers, Guns and Money always stuck in my head, too. lol
    What more can I say:
