Jimmy Buffet and Friend
This is a photo of Jimmy at the America's Cup Ball in Freemantle, Australia in 1987.
It was about three o'clock in the morning and the band had just called him to the stage to do a song and he stopped on the dance floor for this picture.
Buffett said, "This is the only picture of me in a suit and tie," then laughed and went up and did a song with the band.
I dug this photo out after I heard Jimmy fell off the stage at the end of a show at the Sydney Opera House last week.
There's a report on the internet from a doctor who was in the front rows, and an official press release saying he's alright, although he was bleeding profusely from a cut in the head and had passed out for a little while.
A photo of him arriving in Califoria shows an arm in a sling while he's talking on a cell phone while walking in an airport.
Although a show scheduled for New Zealand was cancelled, it appears that the shows scheduled for the east coast in April are still a go.
More to come on this.
