When was the last time that Jimmy did God's Own Drunk...

Post by godsowndrnk2 »

at a show? The only one that I can remember was Nissan Pavillion in 2000, but I left due to weather, and missed it. Anybody ever seen him do it?
Like I explain'd to you once before, I ain't no drinkin' man, but temptation got the best of me. I was God's own drunk, and a fearless man.

Didn't see it on the 2000 set list.

Not sure of the facts but someone told me that when he played it last (whenever that was), he said it would be the last time he'd play it live. Not sure why. Maybe just a rumor. :-?

I think he did it at one of those Sag Harbor shows in '99, '00, or '01. I think '99.

I was surprised when he played it at the sag harbor show in 99, especially after telling the bufford pusser story and not even going into the legal probelm. After his "lawyer and the a**hole" song in the early 80's I always assumed he would never be allowed to play it again. I think the version on Living and Dying is one of his best recordings ever.

It was a requested song for "stumpo el bando" in 97 in Atlanta. He rattled it off in about 2 minutes without stumbling once. It's pretty helarious.

With all due respect to Mr. Buffett, it is Buckley's song.

I know how to google, but prefer to engage in conversation...

Was / is Lord Buckley a performer? Or just a writer?

I thought he was one of the guys from the Christmas song.

I believe Buffett describes Buckley as a "humorist" during the intro to God's Own Drunk on You Had To Be There.

Yep. I was there. I wish he'd do more 'stumpo el bando' type stuff, so we can see some of the rareties JB rarely (if ever) pulls out.

Buckley is kind of hard to classify. He started out in Vaudeville, and just sort of evolved his own thing over the years.

There's a fairly interesting biography of him, titled Dig Infinity, that is apparently out of print now. I've got a copy. It's a bit disjointed in places, but among other things has the text of a number of his routines.

You can also find info at http://www.lordbuckley.com.

My first Jimmy Buffett was way back in '86 or '87 at Portland, OR. For some legal reasons he could not do it. So he asked trivia questions and the audience shouted out the answers. Then he did a song called something like " The lawer annd the a**hole" :oops:
