Biography

Pascagoula, Mississippi, United States

Jimmy Buffett (born December 25, 1946 in Pascagoula, Mississippi, United States) is a singer/songwriter, best known for his “island escapism” lifestyle and music including hits such as “Margaritaville” and “Come Monday”. He has a rabid, but genial, cult following known as “Parrotheads.” They call the youngest members “Parakeets.”

Buffett has written three No. 1 best sellers. Tales from Margaritaville and Where Is Joe Merchant? both spent over seven months on the New York Times Best Seller fiction list. His book A Pirate Looks At Fifty went straight to No. 1 on the New York Times Bestseller non-fiction list, making him one of seven authors in that list’s history to have reached No. 1 on both the fiction and non-fiction lists. The other six authors who have accomplished this are Ernest Hemingway, John Steinbeck, William Styron, Irving Wallace, Dr. Seuss and Mitch Albom. He also co-wrote two children’s books, Jolly Mon and Trouble Dolls, with his eldest daughter, Savannah Jane Buffett.

“A Salty Piece of Land”, was released on November 30, 2004, and included a CD single of the same title. The book was a New York Times best seller soon after its release.

His latest book, “Swine Not,” hit bookshelves on May 13th. It’s a colorful tale about a family that lives in a posh New York hotel while covertly smuggling in their pet pig named Rumpy.

    I never thought I'd work at a place where Jimmy Buffet would be such an appropriate accompniment to the corporate culture...but bring it on. A little parrot music makes the shift pass nicely between fixing computers.

    God bless the USA. Cheeseburgers, margaritas, cocaine, and Hawaiian shirts are all I need to make me happy.

    My uncle died from complications due to a botched quadruple bypass surgery. We played Cheeseburger in Paradise at the funeral and all drank margaritas as we lowered the casket into the ground. I'm glad Jimmy was with us in some form during the service. He refused to come to the funeral because he's currently in drug rehab for his heavy cocaine usage.

    If you all knew the atrocities that this "man" has inflicted upon humanity, I don't think you would love him so much. He is a monster.
