A true American madman, genius, icon — all of it true in most circles — Warren Zevon stoked a nationwide artistic consciousness with vivid imagery, humor and scathing scrutiny. Here, during a 2000 show at the late Odeon Concert Club, Zevon is in his element. 

The setlist strolls through Zevon's iconic compositions, as well as some of his latter-day stuff — all lapped up with equal fervor by the audience. Ah, to catch this guy while he was around... Bet it was incredible. This video, now gleefully guiding the Scene office through a Wednesday morning, is the distant next-best thing.

(That solo during "Play It All Night Long"... Wow. I could loop that shit all day.)

While we're at it, here are a few other "vintage concerts," one might call them, that we've been posting around here lately.

AC/DC at World Series of Rock at Cleveland Municipal Stadium in 1979 
Smashing Pumpkins in Tremont in 1991
Queens of the Stone Age at Euclid Tavern in 1999
