Mashing Zevon

I'm no big fan of Kid Rock, but I'll give him his props for letting me add a new Summer song to my Ipod Summer song playlist with "All Summer Long". But what really makes me happy about it being a hit is that the Warren Zevon estate gets a piece of the pie. The Skynyrd estate gets a lot of royalties for "Sweet Home Alabama", but while "Werewolves of London" is the breadwinner for Zevon's family, he doesn't sell as much catalog as Skynyrd. So, I'm always happy to see that the kid's who are listening to Kid Rock will be turned on to Zevon. Maybe they'll even download "Werewolves". Zevon would have a sinister smile on his face if he heard Rock's final product.
