hello from me

Post by oldredbike » Tue Sep 19, 2023 3:03 pm

Hi y'all. I'm a 48 year old Jimmy fan since 1989. I saw Jimmy and the Coral Reefers 44 times in those years including an 8 show run in 1994 that included one of my favorites at Buckeye Lake in Ohio.

I've been collecting memorabilia for decades and have a nice collection. When I got to college in 1993 my first order of business was getting to the tattoo parlor to get my parrot tattoo and then I alphabetized all of Jimmy's songs (up to that point) and copied them all in order on cassette tapes. It took me forever. I still have most of them.

I've been playing Jimmy's song on my guitar since 1989 and have read every book he's penned. I also have a book collection that has all of my old Coconut Telegraphs.

I'm still completely heartbroken by Jimmy's passing. It's hit me harder than any previous non-family/friend loss.

I'm glad to be here and send much love to all.
