Happy 75th Birthday to Jimmy Buffett

Jimmy Buffett turns 75 years old today!!

From an interview with Billboard Magazine:

You turn 75 on Christmas Day. So what does a pirate looks at 75 look like?

I’d like finish this rock and roll book I’m working on. It’s based on when we went to Montserrat and did the [1979] Volcano album. I’m making it fictitious, but it’s based on that whole episode, which you can’t believe the s–t that happened. I still can’t. There are so many stories and I file them away. It’s a funny book, but it’s a real rock ‘n roll book. It’s not a miserable experience, let’s just say.

I kept writing some songs, and so instead of some 75th anniversary thing — I don’t want to do that — I’d rather put another album out. I’ve got five songs now. I like what I’m doing. It’s a little more kind of down island — authentic Creole and Trinidadian and Calypso kind of influences are in it.
