Saw JB about three months ago at a local outdoor venue, which suprisingly had ****-poor acustics. He played alot more of the old stuff than he did the last time I saw him which is good. Its interesting all the different stories of where people think JB's cheeseburger in paradise is geographicaly, I was under the impression that it definatively was a small island called Cabbage Key just south of Boca Grande. I did have the cheeseburger while I was there...and it was paradise!

"In Jimmy Buffett's world, paradise is just a state of mind."

Jimmy's latest paradise is the island of Cayo Loco. (from A Salty Piece of Land) where yes, he does eat the occaisional cheeseburger.

Interesting Jimmy fact:

JB is one of only six writers to have held the #1 position in both fiction and nonfiction on the NY Times best seller list.

Not bad for a guy who has close to 40 albums under his belt.

Too tough to call. I like to listen to all his music and that's good 'cause I have most everyone of his albums. Not really any faves but I could do without the earlier country style music.

I don't enjoy his music for more than a few songs... each song kind of sounds the same.

However, I think the guy is a terrific writer. If you haven't read any of his stuff, he has a wonderful, readable, style

Boy, do you have some listening to do before making that statement.

I'm not sure of the name of my favorite Buffet song; maybe you can help me ?
I think it was written by Mac MacAnaley (sp?) and has a line that goes
"...it's my job to be cleaning up this mess and thats enough reason for me to be, It's my job...and with out it I'd be less than what I expect of me"

It's My Job. It's on a Live CD recorded not too long ago in Hawaii. I'm don't know if it was on any studio album.

"It's my job" is from "Coconut Telegraph".

Sorry, I'm a little late with that one
