Terminally ill singer-songwriter Warren Zevon will be the debut subject of a new VH1 series, “Inside Out,” which launches Aug. 24.
The program will chronicle the veteran musician’s struggle to complete “The Wind,” his forthcoming album for Artemis Records, due Aug. 26. Zevon was diagnosed with the terminal lung cancer mesothelioma in August 2002.
“Inside Out: Warren Zevon” will feature appearances by Bruce Springsteen, Jackson Brown, Stevie Nicks and Mick Fleetwood, and is hosted by actor Billy Bob Thornton. Following Zevon through his personal journey with the illness, the program also explores the creative process behind the upcoming album, shares poignant interactions with many of his fans, pulls excerpts from his personal diary and contains clips from his last live performance on “The Late Show With David Letterman.”
