Been listenin' to some Buffett tunes this morning.... my son asked earlier if I'd seen the news.

Late 90's a Bud and I were in Trinidad & Tobago. We flew from Port O Spain to Scarborough on Tobago. The day after we landed we saw white amphibian land at the airport next to the beach. Later that afternoon we were in a really nice restaurant nearby having drinks and looking forward to dinner later on. The waiter asked us to leave as there was a private party planned. We later found out it was Jimmy Buffet getting together with his friends.
His book 'A Pirate Turns Fifty' describes his adventures flying his beautiful white plane.

I was lucky enough to see Jimmy 4 times. Tahiti 1983, In Cardiff 1984 (he did a set with the house band at the Triton), and twice in the bay area in the 90s.

Such great memories!

Sad day for sure. Been waiting around for the announcement to resume the tour, but now it all makes sense. Last saw him in Sacramento in March 2019. I will forever remember the Las Vegas shows as they always had the pool party before the show!
I just read that he battled skin cancer for the past four years and three of those years it had escalated into lymphoma. Sail on Jimmy

SB County Bowl, May 1977 the one time I saw him in concert. It was a blast.

A great songwriter. His tunes reflected our lives in ways only music can speak.

Never met the man but I sure am sad.
