And I think you could group Jimmy Buffett and Jim Croce and Jerry Jeff Walker and Steve Goodman and Kris Kristofferson and Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings and a number of others together. They seemed to be all about partying and drinking and drugs and having a good time, but there was something deeper beneath their music.
And hey, I feel cool when I listen to them. Isn't that enough?
P.S. Ron, stop for a minute and consider my Buffett-Hemingway comparison. I think there's something to it. This is Hemingwayigan self-loathing, not any of that Puritan shit.
And by the way, the Key West Lighthouse is a particularly pretty one.
