Well, I am currently listening to "Buffett Live: Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays". We named our Airstream after my wife's favorite JB song as you can see below. Mine has to be a toss up between "Trying to Reason with Hurricane Season", which is very appropo for the folks in FL today like my mom, and "A Pirate Looks at 40". Which like JB says in the intro to the song on his live album "Meet Me in Margaritaville", I have but that one astern.

I have been a Buffett fan since I first heard Margaritaville way back in college when it first came out. A couple of others that are favorites are "It's My Job" and "It's Saturday Night and I Ain't Got Nobody". There are too many others to list.

Our Airstream does have split personality--Tropical JB and Disney. What can I say, I have two great addictions.

BTW, Jimmy Buffett is consistantly in the top five grossing concert series every year (often #2) and has been for nearly 20 years. Not bad for someone who never won a Grammy!

me too!

I've been a loooong time parrothead (although when I first started listening to JB's music, I don't think they called us PH's???). An absolute neccessity on road trips during the early 80's in Montana and still today.

I've got most, if not all, his albums, tapes, CD's, DVD's and by now, my three girls and wife have all grown up with JB playing, all the time.

My wife sticks in some John Denver on occassion (and she is an equally rabid fan of his) so our music aligns well with our A/S.

JB and I share the passion for aviation and I thougt it fitting that I name our A/S "Hemisphere Dancer" after his airplane, a Grumman Albatross....lots of shiny aluminum and rivets too!

Haven't been to a concert in years but hope that changes soon...

Marc

Love Buffett

The first time that I saw a Pink Flamingo fastened to the top of someones hat, I was at a Frank Zappa concert. I cracked up laughing, and thought of Jimmy.
I have to agree with Minnie's mate. Of all of the Great Buffett songs Trying To Reason With Hurricane Season, and "Pirate" are my favorites. Son Of A Son Of A Sailor also rates high on the list. Jimmy said "I'd rather die while I'm living, than live while I,m dead". I agree.
Bob,

Bob,
Ditto, Bob! The list could go on and on for me. I had a 12 CD changer in my last truck...all Jimmy Buffett. My current truck only has 6 CD changer so it was a tough decision on which ones made the cut.

I suggest New Orleans. Well this could turn into something really fun. It would have to be planned out well in advance but sure sounds like a good time.

BTW I listen to radio Margaritaville in my truck a lot, Jimmy will turn 60 Christmas day.

I have a couple of picutres of Jimmy and Jerry Jeff Walker I shot at a concert pre Margaritaville. I will have to see if I can find them and post them. One is autographed by Jerry Jeff Walker who signed it across Jimmys face. I hope they are intact in my attic as Katrina did give me some roof leaks.

Jim

Btw if you see an Airstream out and about with Michigan plates, a Margaritaville flag, (Parrot congo), a rebuild Louisiana fleur de lis, and a pirate flag you know its probably us!

Thanks for your support for New Olreans.

How about a Jimmy Buffett rally in New Orleans during Jazz Fest. Jimmy is a regular at Jazz Fest and plays most years.
Jazz Fest '07 Dates Announced! the 2007 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival will be held on April 27-29 and May 4-6 at the Fair Grounds Race Course.

On another note.

The local WBCCI unit did a Mardi Gras Rally every year. 2006 was to be the last rally due to members of the club ageing. I am sure the 2006 event didn't happen as it was held a City Park Stadium which of course went under water.I have the paper work on my desk to join the local unit which I will do. If I can get a few younger folks to join this may be a way to get that rally back. Mardi Gras can be a very family freindly event, the nice part dose not get the press.

Thanks Jim

When is Jazz Fest? We are about to have the Montreux Jazz Festival here in Atlanta over Labor Day Week End.

I might could talk my wife into a JB concert rally if it is during the summer months or over one of the school breaks...she is a teacher.

Not many know about the French Quarter Fest, glad you had a good time.

Ooo! Conflict with school. Spring break for us is first week in April. It's already spoken for though. Too, bad it isn't some time after Memorial Day.

Buttoned Down Parrothead...

We attended first concert when JB came to San Jose last year, and had misfortune of being up in rafters with folks beyond falling-down-drunk-and screaming... Left after concert and summed up saying "We were definitely not drunk enough..." At least two of the 6 slots in CD changer dedicated to Buffet. Did enjoy visit to Margaritaville in Key West last year also (bartenders can make Margaritas REALLY Fast...).

Guess I too am impressed with Citation Jet, Flying "Winnebago" Seaplane (The Grumman Albatross) and sailing... Similar hobbies, dissimilar budgets...
