Buffett in New Orleans to Honor Ed Bradley

April 27th, 2007

Jimmy Buffett was at Jazz Fest in New Orleans today to take part in a tribute to the late Ed Bradley.

Bradley, who died in November, had wanted to be remembered at the festival with a “second line” parade, so-called because watchers often fall in to form a second line of paraders.

Quint Davis introduced singer Jimmy Buffett as the person who first brought Bradley to the festival in the 1980s, and the first to pull him up on a stage and hand him a tambourine.

“Bless you, Father, for bringing us a really bad tambourine player but a great friend,” Buffett said Friday.

Buffett took credit for giving Bradley the nickname “Teddy Badly.” About 45 of Bradley’s friends participating in the parade wore small green pins with the name “Teddy” printed on them.
