I can claim some time in Wisconsin -- a degree from Bucky Badger and then a couple of years in Milwaukee. Since then, I moved a bit further south, but I always get back to visit friends. Wisconsin is a great place!

I can't remember where I've heard/seen this, but when asked what he'd be doing now that his book was done Jimmy mentioned that he'll be touring, producing a movie and then at some point will head back into the studio to record another CD. My guess is that will give us a new one early next year.

TATS Video keeps climbing on CMT: #6

It's nice to see this video/song still have some momentum behind them -- it's well done. Maybe that will bode well for POW.

Reading this thread really makes me want to go to a show; I'm not sure I can wait until he hits the Midwest in the summer. I'm way behind with 1 in '03 and 3 in '04 -- where was I all of those years??? I find it interesting that a few people had similar gaps from the early-'80s to around 2000. Why'd...

Citcat, good to see you're positive and planning for a show; I hope you get one this year -- you've certainly demonstrated great enthusiasm (as maybe half of your 1500+ posts have been on this topic). Good luck! :)

Yep, in the 60 Minutes update a few months back Jimmy joked that he skipped the whole "behind the music" thing. That followed his comment "I didn't have to go into rehab and I'm not broke."

What a neat idea. It will be really interesting to see how this whole thing moves forward. Will the Q&A be posted on the M'ville website? Will it be part of a Coconut Telegraph issue? Why did they need my email address? Wow, now I have even more "questions that bother me so". :o

I've only been to KW twice and i discovered the location of Shrimpboat Sound with the help of some locals . . . . .is Shrimpboat Sound in Schooner's Wharf, because the name "Schooner's Wharf" is ringing a bell for some reason, and I think thats the reason why. Shrimpboat is not in SW but ...

Here's my take. A stop at Schooner Warf (when McCloud is playing in the afternoons) is part of the Trails of Margaritaville Tour. The tour attendees are told by the guide that McCloud's next song will be one that Jimmy has recorded and is due out on his next CD. Where it gets interesting is when you...

The shiny lip gloss thing was goofy -- someone lost control while putting it on -- like a 4-year old got into the lipstick -- got some on the lips as well as half of the face. :o I was kind of hoping they'd have Jimmy do the confessional -- can you imagine how much fun that could have been??!

Yes, my concern was the electrical; last I heard that stuff didn't go well with water. If they can really make the equipment work in rain without any electrocutions (or destroying instruments, for that matter), then that would take care of that problem. I'd still wonder about overall show quality in...

Buffett is to Wrigley as Ashlee Simpson is to Cellular One Park (or whatever Sox park is now called). It's about character and tradition vs. a sterile and contrived environment. (Okay, so I'm a Cubs fan.) It's not just about where one can tailgate in a big parking lot. Parrotheads are amongst the mo...

A stadium tour is risky for sound, but what about weather?? At the pavilions, unless there is a monsoon with hurricane winds and heavy lightning, the show can still go on. At stadiums, since all set up would be outdoors (except for domes and retractable roof venues -- can you imagine how bad that so...

Nashville will turn on Toby sooner or later. I can remember when Hank Jr. could do no wrong. Things sure changed for him. To hear Toby tell it, no one in Nashville likes him, "gets" him or wants him to succeed. I think the "no one in Nashville likes me" is Toby's schtick (brand)...
