Buffett appears on “A Tribute to Dan Fogelberg”

A Tribute to Dan Fogelberg” is now available at Amazon.com. Jimmy Buffett sings the song “There’s A Place In The World For A Gambler”.

The project, which released Nov. 21 after nearly eight years in the making, includes a star-studded lineup featuring Garth Brooks, Zac Brown, Jimmy Buffett, Joe Walsh and the Eagles, Michael McDonald, Train, Amy Grant and Vince Gill, Boz Scaggs, Casey James, Dobie Gray, Donna Summer, Fool’s Gold’s Denny Henson and Tom Kelly, Randy Owen, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Richie Furay.

Sales from the album will benefit the Prostate Cancer Foundation, a cause near and dear to Dan’s wife, Jean Fogelberg. In 2008, a year after Fogelberg passed away from prostate cancer, Jean released “Sometimes A Song,” a Valentine’s Day gift to her from Dan, and donated the proceeds to PCF. Each year since then she has designed the annual PCF Holiday Cards to help raise money and awareness for the cause.

“I will be forever grateful to these amazing artists for giving their time and talents to honor Dan and to help fund the Prostate Cancer Foundation’s research programs to find a cure for prostate cancer,” said Jean Fogelberg about the new album.

Mac McAnally recovering from heart attack

Coral Reefer Mac McAnally suffered from a heart attack this week and is doing better now. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Meanwhile Jimmy Buffett is helping Snoop Dogg on a new movie called “The Beach Bum”.

From Buffett: “OK, by now, most folks have heard about Mac’s heart attack, which was a little more serious than a Big Mac attack. He is fine now and stable and should leave the hospital tomorrow, which is great news for all of us. Sadly he will not make the hurricane benefit this Sunday in Tallahassee, while I was working on the set of “The Beach Bum”, in Miami on Tuesday, Snoop said he would try and work up “Little Martha”. I will keep you posted on his progress. No, I am not the beach bum in the movie. He is played by Matthew McConaughey. I am JB, Snoop’s writing partner. Movie is directed by Harmony Korine. Coming soon to a theatre new you! Fins Up. JB”

Jimmy Buffett to tour with the Eagles in 2018?

A article on Best Classic Bands says the Eagles will tour in 2018 with Jimmy Buffett: “Eagles to Tour in 2018, Says Manager: Exclusive

After a warm reception to an Eagles reunion without the late Glenn Frey, a set of stadium dates is being planned for summer of 2018, pairing the best-selling band with party troubadour Jimmy Buffett.

“One word answer? Yes,” the band’s longtime manager, Irving Azoff, told Best Classic Bands. Coors Field in Denver will be one destination, Azoff said, with “an Eagles/Buffett celebration up in the mountains there. We’re just talking about a handful” of stadium dates featuring the two classic artists.

Azoff declined to comment about a possible Eagles tour following the stadium dates, noting that the band is still in flux after the untimely death of co-founder Frey. Vince Gill and Frey’s son Deacon have stepped in to handle Frey’s vocals and guitar work to great acclaim. While live dates are planned, any studio recordings are unlikely.

“The Eagles are in an experimental phase,” Azoff said. “I look at is as not really an Eagles tour; it’s really a celebration of their music. We just kind of do things that feel right. I don’t know how long it’ll go. I don’t speculate there will be any (studio) recordings based on the public’s willingness to listen at this point. I’m not going to suggest it, anyway.”

Buffett and Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda

Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator and star of “Hamilton: An American Musical”, spent time with Jimmy Buffett in Chicago this past Saturday. Buffett was Miranda’s guest at a matinee performance of Hamilton at the CIBC Theatre that afternoon, and then Miranda was Buffett’s guest at an evening performance of Escape to Margaritaville at the Oriental Theatre. During the final curtain call Miranda joined Buffett onstage for a surprise performance of the latter’s iconic hit song “Margaritaville”.
