Jimmy Buffett FAQ - "The Book"

Post by surfpirate »

Get on over to my friend Jackson Quigley's facebook page
where he is giving us insights to his writing process as he works on
his second book about Jimmy. Jackson has been tapped by the
publishers of the musicians FAQ series of books to write
the next edition which will be about Jimmy.

*LIKE* the page damb it!

I was once so deep into the Parrot Head World, that at one period of time ('99 - '00) I followed the Concert Trail during the entire "Beach House On the Moon" Tour, going to every show, and then some.

I'm writing my 2nd book about Jimmy Buffett, and I thought I knew a lot about the man known as "Bubba." But I was wrong...I've learned so much more though the process of writing this book. I can't wait to share it all.

After the book is published, this [face book page] will be an interactive part of the book. Where we all can share our stories and knowledge about the Jimmy Buffett/Parrot Head Phenomenon.

Come along for the ride...

Jackson
Jackson's FAQ Facebook page is interactive and filled with gems from a solid base of hardcore and knowledgeable Parrotheads. The best and the brightest if you will. See the photo of Jimmy stand up paddle board surfing below for an example. 8) But seriously ..... Jackson has a world of contacts and inside information and I consider him to be a great friend. I cannot wait to read the final product when this book is published. Let's help him write it.

I'm going to give this a bump.

The final manuscript is going to the publisher sometime in December.
This facebook page ----> https://www.facebook.com/JimmyBuffettFaq
is THE place where YOU can help shape the final product.

FYI ... the book's cover has been chosen (a photo by Tom Corcoran)
and the book is already available for pre-order on Amazon
and can be seen along with the rest of the Musician's FAQ books
from the same publisher here ----> LINK

It will be available early next year.
I don't know the actual date yet, but it
will most certainly be available
before Mothers Day.

As long as we're talking a book of Buffett FAQs, I think I did pretty well on eBay about a week ago; I ended up spending less than a $20.00 bill for a bunch of Parrothead-related stuff like a Margaritaville "Parrothead" and "License to Chill" license plates, bumper stickers, postcards, a couple pictures of Jimmy, some Key West souvenirs like coasters and glasses from Sloppy Joe's, Flying Monkeys, and Hog's Breath, and some other knick-knacks — and also a book that looks like the "Yellow Album" cover entitled "Things You Know by Heart" by one Olaf Nordstrom.

Anybody else have this book?  According to Amazon.com, it's a 'trivia book based on absolutely nothing other than the words in Jimmy's music'.  Is it worth having?  Did I do good on this deal or not?

I've certainly spent $20 on worse than all that. :lol:

According to Amazon Olaf has also authored some Jimmy-related cookbooks and drink recipes.

Need some help. We're coming down to the wire here to get this book to the publisher.

I'm doing some research on various celebrities that have joined Jimmy on stage over the years.

Rick Fears during BHOTM. Of course we have Ed Bradley, and Sean Payton recently. And Katie Couric.

Others? Thanks for helping jog my memory.

Yep. Thinking more non-professional musicians.

I just thought of another ... Bill Clinton played sax with Jimmy at the Tennessee Inaugural ball in '93.

And Don Johnson introducing Jimmy at the Miami Marine stage for Live By The Bay.

Ed Podolak, former KC Chiefs running back, was onstage for at least one song at the Des Moines show back in April. I remember Angelica Huston at one of the Jones Beach shows about 10 or so years ago.
