Nice Zevon Tribute by Brian...

Nice Zevon Tribute by Brian Doherty: Excerpt:

He was a great writer of place — an undersung bard of Los Angeles mores and scenes and emotions — as well as blissfully un-self-obsessed songwriter whose observant eye was cast on the world more than on his own navel.
I'll never understand exactly why the phrase "Look Awayyyyy down Gower Avenue" makes me feel like crying and laughing at the same time, but it does. (Via Jesse Walker)

I feel the same way about that line, and I've never seen the place. I'm very fond of that song.
