The Top Parrothead Fly Fisher Lives to Sing–and Cast–Again

Most everybody knows that Jimmy Buffett can belt out the beach funk and put just about anybody in a good mood. But not everybody knows that Capt. Buffett is also a hell a fly fisher. Just a few days back, Jimmy took a gnarly spill off the stage during an encoure in Sydney–all the Hollywood gossip gurus reporter he was knocked cold for a good 10 minutes or so.

Parrotheads the world over–myself included–collectively exhaled recently when it was reported that the old pirate was just fine, save for some bumps and bruises. He had to cancel his shows in New Zealand to return back to the states to convalesce (I'm sure, if he read that description of his recovery, he'd cringe), but otherwise, he's on the mend.

God bless, Jimmy... thanks for all the music that circles the inside of my skull. I'm glad you're all right. I'm tipping a margarita your direction as I type this. Fins up, brother.


  1. Glad Jimmy is OK. The thought of no more Jimmy Buffett concerts, and the hijinks that go with them that I've enjoyed over the years leaves me with chills.

  2. What's sad is that he won't live forever... I just hope he lives long enough.
