Thread Name: Margaritaville, most lucrative song ever
Subject: RE: Margaritaville, most lucrative song ever
I read Buffet's autobiography a couple of times in the late 90's, "A Pirate looks at 50" I think it was called. Joe if Buffet is to believed he spent a couple of years in Key West and a few of years sailing and touring to pay for the sailing. The rest of the time living a fairly orderly life. He is not much of a drinker or smoker, though he wrote about both and at the time was living on Long Island NY, raising kids, surf fishing, flying sea planes and writing off the expenses because he was writing about it. More of a business man than a partier by any accounting. Certainly NOT a parrot head, but having lots of fun!
If you really want to know more, the book is on Amazon.
The most interesting thing about Buffett is the legend. I visited a few beach side bars on the Northern shore of the Gulf of Mexico around y2k. In all of them I was told that Jimmy had visited a few times and jammed with the house band. "And he might just so up today" Name another artist who is a mythical as Santa Claus in a region!
