Jimmy Talks New Music

In an interview with the Macomb Daily ahead of his Detroit show on Thursday, Jimmy Buffett talks about how the internet has changed the way fans get their music and how he himself might get new music to fans.

“Will we do another album? I don’t know the answer to that,” Buffett, 68, says by phone. “We’re just trying to find the system where the next batch of new music goes. It’s certainly not like it was when I started out, or for most of my career, for that matter.”

Yet Buffett acknowledges he’s still a fan of the traditional album, and he’s confident his fans feel the same way.

“For me, an album is just about adding something; if you like this, you can add it to the collection,” he explains. “I’m not out there trying to win hits or chase Grammys or (stuff) like that. I’m just trying to stay in the game at our level.”

Buffett sees the potential for using the digital world to his advantage, too — such as live or filmed streams of him and the band in the studio working on new music, and possibly investing the Parrotheads in the process.

“We can have ’em in there watching us make it, and they can say what songs they want — that’s the kind of thing I’m looking at,” he says. He also hopes that seeing an album being made will make fans more apt to actually buy it when it comes out.

Jimmy Has Cameo in ‘Jurassic World’

Jimmy Buffett has a cameo in the new Jurassic World movie:

You might not recognize him at first, but according to the film’s production designer, Buffett was double-fisting liquor and mugging for the camera as the sky fell down around him. “It’s just a little tiny bit when the Pteranodons start to attack and you see him running, and he’s holding a couple of margaritas,” Edward Verreaux told Yahoo Movies earlier this week. “He’s trying to gingerly keep the margaritas safe.”

There’s no photographic evidence of Buffett in the movie yet, but we did discover a shot of him deep within the Jurassic World website, where you can see him having a typically joyful time during a marketing photo shoot.

So, how did the 68-year-old rock legend get so involved with the movie?

Buffett has been friends with Jurassic World producer Frank Marshall for over 30 years, and they frequently work together. Buffett acted in and provided music for the 2011 Marshall-produced family film Hoot, and he had a cameo in the Marshall-directed 1995 movie Congo. The two also partnered on a Facebook game back in 2013, appropriately titled Margaritaville.

Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Hotel is looking to fill hundreds of jobs before it opens this fall:

Tim Arnold, director of food and beverage at the Jimmy Buffett-inspired resort, said he is looking to fill about 300 jobs for the 349-room hotel and its eight restaurant and bar venues.

Hundreds of applicants are expected to participate in the resort’s hiring event June 23-25 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day at the Hillcrest Golf & Country Club, 4600 Hillcrest Drive in Hollywood.

Arnold told the South Florida Business Journal that job seekers will be placed in a “dynamic” environment at the event to see how they respond to the Margaritaville vibe, while still maintaining their professionalism. He said they should also bring resumes and be prepared to talk about their past work experience.

“We’re not hung up on the dress code,” Arnold said about the event. “We’re focused more on personality, enthusiasm.”

Margaritaville Hollywood expects to hire people from all hospitality backgrounds, Arnold said, from previous amusement park workers to luxury hotel workers and others.
