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  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.
