"A week before his diagnosis, Zevon had called Jorge Calderon and said he wanted to make another disc. The two men have been best friends since their first meeting in 1972, when a mutual friend asked Calderon for a ride to bail Zevon out of the drunk tank.

"The question was, `Do you still want to do that or do you want to go to Mexico and lie on a beach and forget about all that,'" Calderon said. "He was going through that in his mind, what to do with such a shocking piece of news. Who knows how to handle that?

"He called back and said, `I still want to do this.'"

You did it, Warren. Thanks.

Everybody go buy it Tuesday.
