Jimmy Buffett is staying at my hotel. So, I’m living large as the second half gets off with a bang. Of course, this begs the question Parrotheads, of your favorite Buffett song or lyric.
I’ve seen him three times, twice as the warmup act for the Eagles in Cleveland. He had a broken leg, so he did the whole show sitting in a rowboat on the stage. Just terrific. A lot tougher than Moises Alou.
As far as meeting musicians go, Paul McCartney and Meatloaf are the two biggies for me. I hear Keith Richards lives nearby me in Connecticut, but I never see him in the grocery store.
Somehow, I can’t picture him at the deli counter telling the guy to slice the roast beef thin.
