The album was awarded the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album. "Disorder In The House", performed by Zevon and Bruce Springsteen, won Best Rock Vocal Performance (Group or Duo).

One side of it particularly-the side with 'Ambulance Blues', 'Motion Pictures' and 'On The Beach' - it's out there. It's a great take." Warren Zevon knew he was dying when he began recording his final album in the fall of 2002. He was diagnosed with mesothelioma just a few weeks before ... Written by Ulf Kjell Gür

Warren Zevon:Inside Out
14 February 2004 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

VH1 does a documentary on singer/songwriter Warren Zevon. VH1 explores Zevon as he does a farewell album "The Wind" while he is on his death bed. Zevon suffers from a rare type of lung cancer. He had the option of treatment to extend his life, but decided to go out with a bang recording this 5 time grammy nominated cd. The documentary goes inside his early stages of life, but primarily focuses on the struggle of this recording. A very touching documentary that shows the life and times of one musics greatest. Now available on DVD including 60 minutes of extra footage from Warren's personal life. This is a must see documentary that will capture your attention as well as your heart.
