See Warren Zevon, as he has never seen him before. Lawyers Guns & Photos contains over 150 never before seen photos. It was written by George Gruel, Warren’s aide-de-camp from1978-83. This book is a must for all Warren Zevon fans. Also, it has the blessing of the entire Zevon family. This is a positive, uplifting, look at one of the most talented songwriters of our time. There are tons of family and in-the-studio photos.

George doesn’t know why he saved all this stuff for all of these years, but he’s certainly glad he did. The photos were not properly stored, but somehow, they survived, as did he. It was a fabulous time to be the music business, and in Los Angeles, especially with Warren and all of the adventures they had. Warren introduced George to a lot of really interesting people and ideas.

There has been plenty written about the darker side of Warren’s life. George thinks the good out weighs the bad. A lot of people had a lot of wonderful times with him. This book celebrates those times and the man Warren was when he was not in combat with his demons. His humor and biting wit were a splendid thing to be around. The bad may have sold papers and intrigued folks, but the good side of WZ is far more interesting.
People often comment that they wished that the media covered more good news and stories of unique humans doing interesting things. Well, this is one of those good news stories that needs to told, hence, this book.

Warren had a multitude of friends that have countless stories of fun, creative and hilarious times with him. This is one of them. George spent a little over five years with Warren; five years that he says were some of the best days of his life. After perusing this book you’ll have a bit more insight into the wonderful, fun loving and complex individual that was Warren William Zevon. Enjoy the ride.
