Default RIP Jimmy Buffet

Bad news: Jimmy Buffet is dead at age 76. Too young to die, really, but he’s been having some health problems and it looks as though they overcame him.

Dim the lights in Margaritaville tonight. The Son of a Son of a Sailer has sailed on!

Default RIP Jimmy Buffett

Holy Moly! I never thought that I'd outlive Jimmy Buffett! The ranks are certainly thinning rapidly among us boomers! RIP Bro!

Sad news. Glad I got to see him a couple times.

RIP JB.

So sad. I've been a hard core Buffett fan since 1976. There are a lot of gems in all those albums that I think most people are unaware of.

Thanks for all the music Jimmy. You were a big part of my life.

Could a moderator please merge this thread with the one in Open Mic? Jimmy Buffett was a huge part of my life and I think it would be best to have one thread running to remember him with.

First piece of news my eyes read this morning. I had to look at the name twice for it to sink in.

He finally experienced the name of his third album, which has been a quip of mine for years and years when asked how I'm doing: "Oh, I'm Living and Dying in 3/4 time." It never fails to get a snicker. RIP Jimmy.

If we weren't all crazy we would all go insane.

Me too. I am very very saddened to hear this. He was a huge part of my guitar journey.

He was a brilliant marketing guy that created an entire genre of music. Certainly a loss too young.

His early stuff is brilliant. One of the reasons I learned to play the guitar. Will be missed.
