      This turned out to be a very nice, if bittersweet, show. It was obvious by
      Letterman's body language and choice of words that he's been a friend and
      fan for a long time -- he was downright reverent, and that's not a word
      often used to describe David Letterman. Zevon performed three songs,
      sounding strained on the high notes of "Mutineer" but was otherwise in
      remarkably good voice for a guy in the late stages of lung cancer. He and
      Dave chatted briefly about his diagnosis and Dave remarked that when Warren
      first broke the news to his staff that it was bizarre to hear him cracking
      jokes about it. Zevon also performed "Genius" and ended the show with a
      strong version of Dave's favorite song, "Roland the Headless Thompson
      Gunner". If that turns out to be the last song Warren Zevon performs in
      concert, he'd be going out on a strong note. I'm very glad he was well
      enough to make this appearance, and that Letterman gave him so much time to
      perform.
