There is an auction on ebay to win a private fishing trip with Jerry Jeff Walker
From Mark Lucy: There is an article in the June 2001 issue of Virginia Full Throttle magazine about a Blue and Gold Macaw parrot that has logged over 15,000 miles riding with his “dad” on a motorcycle. I think any Parrothead would find this very, very interesting, especially some of the things that this bird has been taught.
What’s blue and gold and can ride a Harley like nobody’s business? Spike, an 8 year old macaw parrot from Manassas, VA who has ridden over 15,000 miles. Check out this months magazine to learn all about how Spike, with the help of his dad, Mike has learned the true meaning of “keeping the wind under your wings”. Each month our readers will get a “birds eye view” of local events, rides and runs that Spike will be attending. Keep a look out for this amazing biker bird!

Jimmy Buffett gets mentioned in the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine (page 129 – issue 872 – July 5th, 2001) for helping to get Evan and Jaron signed to their first major record label. He spotted them at a Florida nightclub and recommended them to Island records.
The Kansas City Star also has an article that mentions Jimmy: Hard work puts Evan and Jaron on top with hit single, album
Bill Clinton mentions Jimmy in a speach he made at the “Success 2001” seminar at the Cow Palace in San Francisco. Does anyone know what he said??
“Trim, tan Clinton plays Cow Palace“: Clinton looked great — tan, slimmed-down, and as confident and earnest as ever. A shameless boomer name-dropper, he referenced everyone from Jimmy Buffett to Tina Turner to Machiavelli.
