New Biography of Jimmy Buffett

A new, detailed biography of Jimmy Buffett is on book shelves now: Jimmy Buffett: A Good Life All The Way

In Jimmy Buffett: A Good Life All the Way, acclaimed music critic Ryan White has crafted the first definitive account of Buffett’s rise from singing songs for beer to his emergence as a tropical icon and CEO behind the Margaritaville industrial complex, a vast network of merchandise, chain restaurants, resorts, and lifestyle products all inspired by his sunny but disillusioned hit “Margaritaville.”

Filled with interviews from friends, musicians, Coral Reefer Band members past and present, and business partners who were there, this book is a top-down joyride with plenty of side trips and meanderings from Mobile and Pascagoula to New Orleans, Key West, down into the islands aboard the Euphoria and the Euphoria II, and into the studios and onto the stages where the foundation of Buffett’s reputation was laid.

Jimmy Makes Surprise Appearance at Jazz Fest

Jimmy Buffett dropped by the New Orleans Jazz Fest on Friday and joined Dave Matthews onstage during his set.

As the Jazz Fest schedule read, the closing set at the Acura Stage on Friday (May 7), was simply Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds, but don’t let the simple title nor the lack of backing musicians onstage fool you: These two guitarists brought a few surprises.

Near the end of the pair’s 90-minute set, a stagehand brought out an extra microphone stand as Matthews introduced who would soon stand behind it: Jimmy Buffett, a longtime fan of Jazz Fest and New Orleans.

“I got a friend who wanted to come because he’s in town. I run into this man in odd places … because much the same way some people get places in a car or on a bike, this man just hops on his plane,” Matthews said.

Buffett, wearing shorts and a salmon-colored ball cap, arrived with his own guitar slung over one shoulder.

“I hope if I stand onstage long enough next to Tim Reynolds, I’ll play like him,” he said, later adding, “Allen Toussaint brought this weather today.”

Because New Orleans “is a pirate town,” Buffett explained, the trio took on his “A Pirate Looks at 40.”
