Episode Summary

Show #1895
It's a somber and bittersweet night as Dave brings out longtime friend Warren Zevon as his only guest. Zevon was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer, and during a brief interview he reminds Dave to "enjoy every sandwich." During the second half of the show, Zevon performs "Mutineer," "Desperados Under the Eaves," and "Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner."moreless

  • Truly a class act all the way, all around.

    David Letterman found a fan for life during his emotional speech during the first minutes of his first show following the 9/11 attacks. I found that he was a funny man, highly entertaining, but he was also smart and heartfelt.

    This was never more apparent than during this magnificent hour of television. Dave was, as Warren said, "the best friend" Warren's "music ever had." He was a fan and used his position on the Late Show to promote the wonderful music Warren made.

    The interview still brings me to tears, but I'm amazed at how calm and open Warren seems. And for Dave to treat this situation with the gravitas it deserves while still hitting the jokes, it's truly a testiment to his abilities as a host.

    I still get teary watching the concert portion of this show. I was introduced to Warren through the Late Show and I'll always owe Dave for that. Warren was more than just "Werewolves of London" or "Lawyers, Guns and Money" and David Letterman knew that.

    Hope you're getting enough sleep now, Warren. I, for one, am still enjoying every sandwich.moreless
