Jimmy Buffett is 106.1 The Sound

Born in Pascagoula, Mississippi, this sound artist picked up the guitar in high school to impress girls.  He made money early in his career smuggling marijuana from The Caribbean to Florida.  After leaving his first band – The New Generation – he went to Nashville.  His first few solo albums were intended for country audiences.  After being shunned by country radio, he headed to Florida to find his new sound.  With his laid back live performances, his Grateful Dead – like followers began wearing Hawaiian shirts and calling themselves Parrot Heads.  His real fortune is in his restaurants, casinos, and Landshark Beer.  Two years ago he stopped drinking Margaritas, opting for straight tequila to avoid the sugar.
