Jimmy Buffett was a singer-songwriter, musician, author, and businessman best known for his tropical rock music. Together with his Coral Reefer Band, Buffett recorded hit songs known as “The Big 8”, which he played at every show: “Margaritaville”, “Songs of the Century”, “Come Monday”, “Fins”, “Volcano”, “A Pirate Looks at Forty”, “Cheeseburger in Paradise”, “Why Don’t We Get Drunk”, and “Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes.” Of the 30 albums Buffett released eight are certified gold and nine are platinum.
Aside from his music career, Jimmy Buffett parlayed the “island escapism” lifestyle of his music into several business ventures including Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville restaurant chain, the now defunct Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurant chain, and ventures in hotels, casinos, liquor, and retirement communities. Buffett was one of the world’s richest musicians, with a net worth of $1 billion. He was also a bestselling author. His devoted fan base, mostly comprised of baby boomers, is known as Parrotheads.
