Dawes with a special performance of the Warren Zevon song for David Letterman. What A special band Dawes are surely one of the best American bands around. Warren Zevon Cover. This performance never aired. It was a web exclusive.

Warren Zevon was one of the most underappreciated artists in his time, at least by the general public. Sure, “Werewolves of London” gets heavy rotation between “The Monster Mash” and “Ghostbusters” on radio stations at Halloween time in October, but the rest of his catalog goes mostly unnoticed.

David Letterman did his best to make Zevon a household name though.  Warren filled in for Paul Shaffer over 20 times, plus made numerous visits to the show to promote his albums.  In fact, he referred to Dave as “the best friend my music has ever had”.

Zevon passed away from cancer in 2003, but that hasn’t stopped Dave from promoting his music on The Late Show. Recently, the L.A. band Dawes was asked to perform Zevon’s song, “Desperados Under the Eaves”.  The following video contains an intro from Letterman explaining the reasoning behind this request.  If you’re not already a fan of Dawes  or Zevon – you probably should after this.
