Jimmy Buffett biography (bio):
Jimmy Buffett is a singer, songwriter, author, businessman, and recently a film producer best known for his "island escapism" lifestyle and music including hits such as "Margaritaville" (No. 234 on the list of "Songs of the Century"), and "Come Monday." He has a devoted base of fans known as "Parrotheads." His band is known as the Coral Reefer Band
Aside from his career in music, Buffett is also a best-selling writer and is involved in two restaurant chains named after some of his best known songs, "Cheeseburger in Paradise" and "Margaritaville." He owns the Margaritaville Cafe restaurant chain and co-developed the Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurant concept with OSI Restaurant Partners (parent of Outback Steakhouse), which operates the chain under a licensing agreement with Mr. Buffett.
He and his wife, Jane, have two daughters, Savannah Jane and Sarah Delaney, and a son, Cameron Marley.

Born to James Delaney "J.D." Buffett Jr. and Mary Loraine "Peets" Buffett in Pascagoula, Mississippi, Buffett grew up along the eastern shore of Mobile Bay[1]. He graduated high school from McGill Institute for Boys (now McGill-Toolen Catholic High School) in Mobile, Alabama in 1964. He began playing guitar during his college years at Auburn University and The University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, where he received a bachelor's degree in history in 1969. Although a pledge of Sigma Pi (ΣΠ) at Auburn, he was initiated into the fraternity Kappa Sigma (ΚΣ) at the University of Southern Mississippi. He later married his first wife, Margie Washichek, at Spring Hill College in Mobile. After graduating from college, Buffett worked as a correspondent for Billboard magazine in Nashville.

Music:
Buffett began his musical career in Nashville, Tennessee during the late 1960s as a country artist and recorded his first album, the folk rock Down to Earth, in 1970. During this time Buffett could be frequently found busking for tourists in New Orleans. Country music singer Jerry Jeff Walker took him to Key West on a busking expedition. Buffett then moved to Key West and began establishing the easy-going beach bum persona for which he is known. Following this move, Buffett combined country, folk, and pop music with coastal and tropical lyrical themes for a sound sometimes called "gulf and western." In August of 2000 Buffett and the Coral reefers played on the White House lawn for then President Bill Clinton. Today, he is a regular visitor to the Caribbean island of Saint Barts and other islands where he gets inspiration for many of his songs and some of the characters in his books.
Buffett's third album was the 1973 A White Sport Coat and a Pink Crustacean. Havana Daydreamin' appeared in 1976, followed by 1977's Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes, which featured the breakthrough hit song "Margaritaville".
During the 1980s, Buffett made far more money off his tours than albums and became known as a popular concert draw. He released a series of albums during the following twenty years, primarily to his devoted audience, and also branched into writing and merchandising. In 1985, Buffett opened the first of the "Margaritaville" restaurants in Key West, bringing new visibility and life to the Margaritaville name.
Two of the more out-of-character albums were Christmas Island, a collection of holiday songs, and Parakeets, a collection of Buffett songs sung by children and containing "cleaned-up" lyrics (like "a cold root beer" instead of "a cold draft beer").
In 1997, Buffett collaborated with novelist Herman Wouk to create a short-lived musical based on Wouk's novel, Don't Stop the Carnival. Broadway showed little interest in the play, so it instead ran for six weeks in Miami. He released the soundtrack for the musical in 1998.
In 2003, he partnered in a partial duet with Alan Jackson for the song "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere," a number one hit on the country charts.
Buffett's album, License to Chill, released on July 13, 2004, sold 238,600 copies in its first week of release according to Nielsen SoundScan. With this, Buffett topped the U.S. pop albums chart for the first time in his three-decade career.
Buffett continues to tour throughout the year although he has shifted recently to a more relaxed schedule of around 20-30 dates, and rarely on back-to-back nights, preferring to play only on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, thus the title of his 1999 live album Buffett Live Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays. Purchasing tickets is difficult with most of his concerts selling out in minutes.
In the summer of 2005 Buffett teamed up with Sirius radio and introduced channel 31 Radio Margaritaville. Until this point Radio Margaritaville was solely an online channel. The channel broadcasts from the Margaritaville restaurant at Universal City Walk in Orlando Fl.
In September of 2005, Buffett became the first musician to stage a concert at Wrigley Field in Chicago.
In August 2006, he released the album Take The Weather With You. The song "Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On" on this album refers to 2005's Hurricane Katrina. Also on the album he pays tribute to Merle Haggard with his rendition of "Silver Wings" and collaborates with Mark Knopfler in the track, "Whoop De Doo."
A DVD entitled He Went To Paris is scheduled for release in Spring 2008.
Of the over 30 albums Jimmy Buffett has released, as of October, 2007, he has 8 Gold Albums and 9 Platinum or Multi Platinum Albums. In 2003 Buffett won his first ever County Music Award (CMA) for his song "It's 5 O'clock Somewhere" with Alan Jackson, and has been nominated again in 2007 for the CMA Event of the Year Award for his song "Hey Good Lookin" which features Alan Jackson and George Strait.

Writing:
Buffett has written 3 No. 1 best sellers. Tales from Margaritaville and Where Is Joe Merchant? both spent over seven months on the New York Times Best Seller fiction list. His book A Pirate Looks At Fifty went straight to No. 1 on the New York Times Bestseller non-fiction list, making him one of seven authors in that list's history to have reached No. 1 on both the fiction and non-fiction lists. The other six authors who have accomplished this are Ernest Hemingway, John Steinbeck, William Styron, Irving Wallace, Dr. Seuss and Mitch Albom.
Buffett also co-wrote two children's books, The Jolly Mon and Trouble Dolls, with his eldest daughter, Savannah Jane Buffett. The original hard cover release of the The Jolly Mon included a cassette tape recording of him and Savannah Jane reading the story accompanied by an original score written by Michael Utley.
His most recent book, A Salty Piece of Land, was released on November 30, 2004, and the first edition of the book included a CD single of the same title. The book was a New York Times best seller soon after its release.
Currently, Amazon.com lists a fourth title from Buffett, Swine Not?, to be released in November 2007.

Film and television:
Buffett wrote the sound-track for, co-produced and acted in the 2006 film Hoot, directed by Wil Shriner and based on the book by Carl Hiassen, which focuses on issues important to him, such as conservation. The film was not a big hit, and it was critically panned. He also wrote and performed the theme song to the short-lived 1993 CBS television series Johnny Bago.
In addition, Buffett has made several cameo appearances, including in Repo Man, Hook, Cobb, Congo, and From the Earth to the Moon. He also made cameo appearances as himself in Rancho Deluxe (for which he also wrote the music) and in FM Buffett reportedly was offered a cameo role in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, but declined the offer.

Business ventures:
Buffett has taken advantage of his name and the effect of his music to launch several business ventures, usually with a tropical theme. He owns or licenses the Margaritaville Cafe and Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurant chains. He loves baseball and was part-owner of two minor league teams: the Fort Myers Miracle and the Madison Black Wolf. Between his restaurants, album sales, and tours, he earns an estimated $100 million a year.
In 2006, Buffett launched a cooperative project with the Anheuser-Busch brewing company to produce his own beer under the Margaritaville Brewing label called Land Shark Lager. The label of the beer bottle features a shark fin.
In June 2007, Buffett, in partnership with Harrahs Entertainment, announced plans to build the Margaritaville Casino & Resort in Biloxi, Mississippi not far from his birthplace of Pascagoula. When completed in the spring of 2010, the resort will feature 798 rooms, a full-service spa, a pool/deck area with cabanas, and tropical landscaping.
Along with the Margaritaville and Cheeseburger in Paradise Restaurants, Margaritaville Casino and resort, and Land Shark Lager, Buffett also has has licensed Margaritaville Tequila, Margaritaville Shrimp and Margaritaville Footwear.
According to a 2006 Rolling Stone magazine article, Buffett was listed as the 7th richest rock star in history. In 2006 alone, his annual amphitheater tour grossed over $41 million, his Margaritaville restaurant and stores earned more than $15 million, and with his Sirius Satellite venture, Buffett could earn up to a $5 royalty per record sold compared to the standard $1 to $2.50.

Charity work:
He has been involved in many charity efforts. In 1981, the Save the Manatee Club was founded by Buffett and former Florida governor Bob Graham. The Save the Manatee Club is the world's leading manatee preservation effort. In 1989, legislation was passed in Florida that introduced the "Save the Manatee" license plate, and earmarked funding for the Save the Manatee club.
The "Singing for Change" foundation was initially funded by proceeds from Buffett's 1995 concert tour, and provides grants to local charities in three main areas: children and family causes, environmental causes, and causes for disenfranchised groups.
On November 23, 2004, Buffett raised USD$3.4 million[citation needed] at his "Surviving the Storm" Hurricane Relief Concert in Orlando, Florida to provide relief for hurricane victims in Florida, Alabama and the Caribbean affected by the four major hurricanes that year. He has donated $500,000 to Hurricane Katrina relief so far.
In addition, many Parrothead club activities are focused on charity work, although Buffett is not directly involved with them.

Controversy:
On October 6, 2006, it was reported that Buffett had been detained by French custom officials in Saint Tropez for allegedly carrying over 100 pills of Ecstasy. Buffetts luggage was searched after his Dassault Falcon 900 private jet landed at Toulon-Hyres International Airport. He paid a fine of $300 and was released. A spokesperson for Buffett stated the pills in question were prescription drugs, but declined to name the drug or the health problem for which he was being treated. Buffett released a statement that the "Ecstasy" was in fact, a Vitamin B supplement known as Foltx.
This was not the first time Buffett had been assumed to be carrying drugs. In January of 1996 his Grumman HU-16 airplane nicknamed "Hemisphere Dancer" was shot at by Jamaican police who believed the craft to be smuggling marijuana. The aircraft sustained minimal damage. On board the plane with Buffett were U2's Bono, and Island Records producer Chris Blackwell. The Jamaican government acknowledged the mistake and apologized to Buffett who penned the song "Jamaica Mistaica" for his Banana Wind album based on the experience
On February 4th, 2001, he was ejected from the American Airlines Arena in Miami during a Miami Heat/New York Knicks NBA basketball game for cursing. After the game, referee Joe Forte said that he ordered the singer moved during the fourth quarter because "there was a little boy sitting next to him and a lady sitting by him. He used some words he knows he shouldn't have used."
However, Forte apparently didn't know who he'd just removed from the arena. Heat coach Pat Riley tried to explain who Buffett was to Forte and was censured himself because the referee thought Riley was insulting him by asking if he'd ever been a "Parrothead," the nickname for Buffett's loyal fans.
Though Buffett didn't comment immediately after the incident, he did appear on The Today Show three days later and talked with Matt Lauer about the ejection. Jimmy was laughing and having a very good time with it. Matt told Jimmy that his punishment should be that he play a concert for their Summer Concert Series.

Trademark Litigation:
Jimmy Buffett filed a lawsuit against UnderOneHut.com in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas on November 13, 2006. Jimmy Buffett's attorneys sought to prevent UnderOneHut.com from selling Jimmy Buffett merchandise claiming they had not granted permission for such sales. The case made worldwide headlines appearing in over 200 media sources. It was ultimately settled out of court.
In October, 2007, Buffett filed suit against Six Flags, an amusement park company, claiming that the company had infringed on a Buffett trademark by calling its kids club the Carrothead Club. Buffett claimed that the name was taken from the term "Parrotheads" which is associated with his fans.
