2023 – R.I.P. Jimmy Buffett

……………………………………………(ignore April 30, 2017 publish date – this was published on September 3, 2023)


He wasn’t one of my faves and I’d be hard-pressed to name a song of his other than “Margaritaville”, but he was loved by a lot of people in my generation.

I never got to see him in concert, but he DID pop up one day in 1979 at a Robert Klein Radio Hour taping that I was shooting at RCA Studios in Manhattan.

People magazine liked the combination of him, Klein, Peter Tosh and John Oates (of Hall & Oates) together and ran this shot in their 9-17-79 issue.

R.I.P. James!

    R.I.P., Jimmy Buffett! He had so many fans!!! I never met him either, but that reminds me of a story, (looking at your pictures) 5 years ago we had a 50th wedding anniversary celebration and one of my girlfriends who was invited asked if she could bring a guest and her guest was…… Robert Klein! He was a huge hit at the party and I will always remember how gracious and fun he was.
