Why are Parrotheads so passionate?

I like Jimmy Buffet too. I have the greatest hits CD, maybe a few others I DL'd from iTunes. But to me he is more like inoffensive rather than someone to get really excited about.

So why do you Parrotheads get so excited?

I used to wonder the same thing until I went to a concert of his! It isn't as much him, although I LOVE him and his music, as it is the crowd. It is really hard to explain, but when you are there, regardless of the weather, it is like you are on vacation. Everyone is extremely friendly and fun. And his music is the same way. I have ready that he really doesn't understand it either, but sure does enjoy it. It is a chance to sit back, have a drink, and not have any worries! Just like vacation!!

I have no idea either, as I have never seen him in Concert.

I think its about the lifestyle he represents
(I saw him twice but am embarrased enough to have to say that I don't remember much of the second show - too much tailgating - which is phenominal in itself!)

Being a Parrothead is like having a mental vacation going on in your head, all the time.

Some Parrotheads can push it into the background, so they can work, go grocery shopping, etc. and function in society.

The others just burn out.

Margaritaville is a state of mind. With all the responsibilities adulthood brings, its nice to have something to take you away.

Thats how I see it.

I agree! I have been a Buffett fan for years...it started when I was about 19 and just went to one of his concerts for the party. I've been hooked ever since! I can't explain why...I guess it's like anything else - either you get it or you don't. I never understood the Grateful Dead obsession but to each his own!

Why - All the drinking.

Artists that sing about other drugs - bad.
Artists that sing about alcohol - good family fun.

Um...I don't recall anyone on this thread saying a Buffett concert is 'good family fun'.

He's got ONE song about alcohol that everyone knows. Have you listened to any of his other music? He's got a catalog spanning almost 40 years now. He's about much more than Margaritaville.

Exactly. It's sort of like Disney. For those few hours of concert time, or those few days at the World, it's like real life doesn't exist. It's an escape from reality.
