RIP Willy DeVille
I know only one Willy DeVille song, truth be known, "It's So Easy," which sounds kinda like ZZ Top with an erection and a gram of cocaine. It was used on the soundtrack to Cruising - that controversial William Friedkin thing with Al Pacino as a cop doing undercover work in the kinkier end of NY's gay club scene. That one song is so good that I feel I must note Mr. DeVille's passing... maybe I should even check out the rest of his catalogue!
