Jimmy Buffett

Jimmy Buffett (born December 25, 1946) is an American singer, best known for a few hits such as "Margaritaville", though he has a rabid cult following known as Parrotheads. He began his musical career in the late 1960s as a country artist, and recorded his first album, Down to Earth[?] in 1970. He then moved to Key West and began establishing his easy-going beach bum persona that he has become known for.

Buffett's second album was White Sport Coat and a Pink Crustacean[?], now acclaimed as his best though it achieved only moderate sales. "Margaritaville" was released in 1974 and made him into a pop star for a brief period, continued by 1976's Havana Daydreamin'[?] and 1977's Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes. During the 1980s, Buffett made far more money off his tours than albums, and he became known as a popular concert draw. He released a series of albums during the following twenty years, primarily to his devoted audience, as well as branching into writing and merchandising of various kinds.
