Singer/ songwriter, guitar, vocals and violin. When he's 14 years old Warren runs from home (Arizona); he wants to become a surfer. So he stranded at L.A.. In '67 he made his first record, did some session work (Everly Brothers) and becomes friends with Jackson Browne and David Lindley ( a lap-steel guitarist from Kaleidoscope).
He died on Sunday September the 7th 2003 at the age of 56. Warren did know that he had cancer and did make a last album with Jackson Browne, Bruce Springsteen & Don Henly. A cover of Knockin' on Heavens Door is on that album called; The Wind.
With Bad luck streak in dancing school ('80) he put himself at the map from the music business. He got help from some Eagles like;
Lelend Sklar - bass,
Rick Marotta - drums,
George Calderon - guitar & vocals.
Sentimental Hygiene ('87), is one of my favourite albums. Peter Buck, Michael Stipe (REM), Niel Young, Tony Levin and a bunch of others are his sidemen. I like the song the factory; I was born in '63 got a little job in the factory, I don't know much about Kennedy, cause I was too busy working in the factory. We got a kid that's two and we got another one due...
On Transverse City ('89) he collected a few great guitarists;
David Gilmour (Run Straight down a great song!),
Jerry Garcia (Grateful Dead),
and of course a few other excellent musicians.
After that he made some other albums like Mr Bad Example ('91), My Ride's Here ('02, with on one track Tony Levin) but the highlights of his career were in the '80 and his not mentioned song from the 70's; Werewolves in London (Ahoeeeee!).He became the leader of the band who played in David Letterman's shows, so it became that David Letterman did some guest vocals on his latest album from 2002.
His latest album The Wind ('03) reaches the top 20 of the album charts in the U.S.. Sadly he'sn't able to enjoy this succes for long.
