Zevon died approximately 20 years ago, in September 2003. “Enjoy Every Sandwich” is taken from something he said on “Late Show With David Letterman” in 2002, when he was battling the form of cancer known as mesothelioma that later took his life. Letterman asked Zevon what he had learned from the experience and he responded, “how much you’re supposed to enjoy every sandwich.”

The phrase was also used in the title of Enjoy Every Sandwich: The Songs of Warren Zevon, the 2004 tribute album that included tracks by Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Don Henley, Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt and others.
