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!

I can understand being a Parrothead. There are a lot of people that have a passion that others can't understand. Look at you with BBQ.

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'.

Now I'm not a Parrothead, but I never considered it "good family fun." I consider it "adult" fun. And, whether or not it should be, alcohol is legal for adults.

It is the ultimate escape, and everyone there feels the same way. It's akin to the Peter Pan syndrome, only with Margarita's for Pixie Dust!

I like this explanation! I'm a huge Jimmy Buffett fan, have ALL his CDs, read all his books, (especially enjoyed A Pirate Looks at Fifty), and shop frequently at his Margaritaville stores.

Like he says, Margaritaville is a state of mind. Whenever I listen to his music it puts me in a happy frame of mind. It takes me back to the times I've spent sunning on some tropical beach and swimmng and snorkeling in warm, blue/green tropical waters, not a care in the world. His music also makes me want to plan more tropical excursions.

Oh, and I do love a good cheeseburger in paradise!!!

I didn't get into his music until we had been on our carribean cruises....now I have several of his CDs. Haven't been to a concert of his, although I would like to. Can't say I'm a "parrot head", but I certainly love his music.

Thats how I see it.

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.

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.

Thanks! Yeah, bummer we didn't run into each other. This was, however, my first trip where I met DISers, and I met three of them.

Personally I am more offended he promotes the eating of red meat.

One? How about "Why Don't We Get Drunk". There's more where that come from.

I'm very familiar with his music, even have one import hits CD.

I just think it's funny how "Deadheads" are seen as druggies and "Parrotheads" are just seen as people who like to have fun.

So then a Deadhead who likes Buffet is a druggy who likes to have fun.
