Speaks his mind on music & movies!
Having Vinyl Connection as my guest on ‘Jack Johnson, Miles and CB’ made me think of this song. CB absolutely loves it. The song rocks hard and fits the topic. Zevon had his finger on the pulse of this era of boxing. He knew what he was singing about. This was one of CB’s favorite eras of boxing and Warren caught it in this song. Mancini, ‘Schoolboy’ Chacon, Danny ‘Little Red’ Lopez, Greg Haugen, Livingstone Bramble, Alexis Arguello, Salvador Sanchez etc these guys were all great fighters when the bar was high. It’s no wonder Zevon was inspired to write this song.
This song brings back so many memories. Warren Zevon made great music and this is some of it.
“Hurry home early, hurry on home, Boom Boom Mancini’s is fighting Bobby Chacon”
