New CD coming out for Buffett, I just watched the video of one of the songs Bama Breeze on margaritaville.com
Sounds a little more on the country side, but still Buffett through and through.

I caught part of an interview with JB on CMT a few weeks ago, quite by accident, and was struck by the similarities in work habits between Gord and Jimmy. JB may look laid back but he takes care of his business, and runs it that way (as a business.)He LOVES his fans. He knows perfectly well he'd be bartending somewhere without 'em and is a little bemused by the parrotheads but very grateful too.

A work-a-holic....but he was admittedly influenced by Lightfoot.

Imagry? What Kind? I know a lot of his songs remind me of the warm tropics and his Cheeseburger In Paradise has pictures of that? Maybe that's what your thinking of.

omigoodness!
I can put on a JB album and be transported off to places I never want to leave!
Along with Kris and Gord he's right up there as a singer/songwriter who can do that.
I have always said I'm sure in a previous life I was an inhabitant of a tropical Caribbean island and that when I come back after this life I want to be Jimmy Buffet...
oh yeah....love, laffs, beaches, bars, boats, music....he's livin' the life...

"we are the people our parents warned us about" - J.B.

a song written by JB when he was around 34 - back in 1980: JB will be 60 come Christmas...

GROWING OLDER BUT NOT UP
For all those who dont feel as old as they are and never will
I rounded first never thought of the worst
As I studied the shortstops position
Crack went my leg like the shell of an egg
Someone call a decent physician
Im no pete rose, I cant pretend
Though my mind is quite flexible, these brittle bones dont bend

Chorus:
Im growing older but not up
My metabolic rate is pleasantly stuck
Let those winds of time blow over my head
Id rather die while Im living than live while Im dead

Sometimes I see me as old manatee
Headin south as the waters grow colder
Tries to steer clear of the hum-drum so near
It cuts prop scars deep in his shoulder
But thats how it goes (thats how it goes), right to the end
Though his bodys quite flexible, that barnacle brain dont bend

Chorus:
Im growing older but not up
My metabolic rate is pleasantly stuck
Let those winds of time blow over my head
Id rather die while Im livin than live while Im dead

Now dont get me wrong
This is not a sad song
Just events that I have happened to witness
And time takes its toll as we head for the poll
And no one dies from physical fitness
So what the hell, well take it right to the end
As the days grow more complicated the nightlife still wins

Chorus:
Im growing older but not up
My metabolic rate is pleasantly stuck
Let those winds of change blow over my head
Id rather die while Im living than live while Im dead
Let those winds of time blow over my head
Id rather die while Im living than live while Im dead

I just love this song. Add me to the Parrothead Membership. Just wish he would fly over this way!

All this Jimmy Buffett talk was too much for me, so I ordered the " Live at Wrigley Field", DVD from Amazon, then prayed non stop for two weeks that it would work on my TV, thank goodness it does, what a great concert, great atmosphere, and Jimmy is fantastic. The "City of New Orleans", sung from the very top of the grandstand, was a terrific finish.

All the Best, Ron.
