Biography Of Jimmy Buffett

Jimmy Buffett’s upbringing was rooted in the Roman Catholic faith in Mobile, Alabama. His musical journey began at St. Ignatius Catholic School, where he picked up the trombone. He continued his education at the McGill Institute, another Catholic school in Mobile. In 1964, he started his college life at Auburn University but faced academic challenges that led to him leaving. Later, he found himself at the University of Southern Mississippi while simultaneously performing in local nightclubs. In 1969, he successfully earned a degree in history. Afterward, he relocated to the French Quarter of New Orleans, where he played in a cover band on Bourbon Street.

In 1970, he moved to Nashville, nurturing dreams of becoming a country singer. During this time, he also worked as a journalist for Billboard magazine, where he made a notable contribution by breaking the story about the disbanding of the pioneering bluegrass duo Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs. His debut album, “Down to Earth,” was released in 1970 on Andy Williams’s Barnaby label but had limited sales, with only 324 copies reportedly sold.

Buffett’s second album for Barnaby, titled “High Cumberland Jubilee,” remained unreleased until 1976. However, by then, he had already signed with ABC-Dunhill and recorded “A White Sport Coat and a Pink Crustacean” in 1973, which featured the raucous party anthem “Why Don’t We Get Drunk.”

Notably, Jimmy Buffett had a penchant for wordplay and puns in his work. For instance, the title “A White Sport Coat” drew inspiration from the 1957 pop hit “A White Sport Coat (and a Pink Carnation)” by country singer Marty Robbins. Another one of his albums bore the quirky name “Last Mango in Paris.”

Jimmy Buffett’s 1974 album “Living and Dying in ¾ Time” showcased his versatility with a rendition of comedian Lord Buckley’s “God’s Own Drunk.” This record also introduced “Come Monday,” a heartfelt track that marked his first entry into the Top 40 charts.

In the same year, “A1A” paid homage to Florida’s scenic oceanfront highway along the Atlantic coast. It was a pivotal album for Buffett, weaving in references to Key West and maritime life. However, it was the 1977 platinum-selling album “Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes” that truly propelled him to stardom, featuring the iconic hit “Margaritaville.” Another chart-topper, “Fins,” followed in 1979.

A string of popular releases ensued, with the zenith reached in 1985 with “Songs You Know by Heart,” a compilation of Buffett’s most beloved tunes to date. It went on to become the best-selling album of his career.

In 1985, Jimmy Buffett also launched his first Margaritaville store, marking the inception of many to come. This year also saw Timothy B. Schmit, formerly of the Eagles and a member of the Coral Reefer Band, coining the term “Parrot Heads” to describe Buffett’s dedicated fanbase, primarily composed of baby boomers.

Apart from his musical endeavors, Buffett was a staunch supporter of conservationist causes. He relocated from the Florida Keys in the late 1970s due to the region’s increasing commercialization. After a brief stay in Aspen, Colorado, he eventually made his home in St. Barts in the Caribbean, while also owning residences in Palm Beach, Florida, and Sag Harbor, New York, on eastern Long Island.

In addition to his enduring touring and recording career, which extended into the 2020s, Buffett ventured into writing music for movies like “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” and “Urban Cowboy.” He made appearances in films such as “Rancho Deluxe” and “Jurassic World” and graced television screens in the 2010s revival of “Hawaii Five-O,” where he portrayed the helicopter pilot Frank Bama, a character from his popular 1992 novel, “Where Is Joe Merchant?”

Jimmy Buffett, an enthusiastic pilot, possessed a fleet of aircraft and often personally piloted them to his performances. In 1994, during takeoff near Nantucket, Massachusetts, he experienced a plane crash but miraculously survived, swimming to safety with minor injuries.

In 1996, another aircraft owned by Buffett, named Hemisphere Dancer, came under gunfire from Jamaican police who suspected it of being involved in drug smuggling. Onboard were notable figures like Bono of U2, Chris Blackwell (founder of Island Records), and Mr. Buffett’s wife and daughters. The Jamaican authorities later conceded that it was a case of mistaken identity, inspiring Buffett to create the song “Jamaica Mistaica,” a humorous take on the incident.

Jimmy Buffett is survived by his wife, Jane (Slagsvol) Buffett; two daughters, Savanah Jane Buffett and Sarah Buffett; a son, Cameron; two grandsons; and two sisters, Lucy and Laurie Buffett.

In a 1979 interview with Rolling Stone, Buffett was questioned about his previous comment, in which he seemingly paradoxically mentioned choral director Mitch Miller and Gulf Coast pirate Jean Lafitte as two of his greatest influences.

Buffett clarified, “Mitch Miller, for sure,” referring to how his fans sang along with him at concerts, much like Miller’s television audiences did. He added, “But Jean Lafitte was my hero as a romantic character. I’m not sure he was a musical influence. His lifestyle influenced me, most definitely, ’cause I’m the very opposite of Mitch Miller.”
