14. 1976

This video, of Warren Zevon singing “Mohammed’s Radio” on BBC2’s The Old Grey Whistle Test, was taped in December of 1976, just a few months after Paul Nelson met and became fast friends with Zevon and his wife Crystal.

As noted by blogger Jeff Vaca over at Stuff Running ‘Round My Head, Zevon, accompanied by Jackson Browne and David Lindley, looks “impossibly young and innocent”—completely unaware of what life has in store for him.
