Jimmy Buffett has flown our earthly flock...

One of the sweetest people in the music business has left us...

 

Jimmy Buffett passed away 1-Sept-2023, according to his site.

 

I'll always remember his soulful voice and seemingly endless coolness 😉

 

He also wrote, imho, the lovingest love song of all time:

 

"Come Monday" 

 

See you in the treetops, dear Jimmy...

Last night, our local news ran a story on him. Little did I know that the song Margaritaville was inspired by a trip to Austin Tx. It seems that Jimmy enjoyed the frozen concoction at one of our local establishments, and then went home and wrote a song about it.

Read that as well. Nice tribute to Austin, TX

Sadly, it was the first story that came across my newsfeed this morning. Listening to Jimmy Buffett was like having summer fun all year long, and Margaritaville is still one of my favorite songs. I was just listening to his music the other day. 

Sail in peace, Jimmy.

I just read about it. I am crushed with this one. He

was my late husbands fav. I had “Come Monday”

played at his funeral. Unbelievably talented and

cool artist. He will be missed. I’d like to think he’s 

up in heaven playing for John 💜🎼😢
