Parrottheads unite! Award-winning rock legend, author, restaurant owner, and Sage of Key West Jimmy Buffett visits Google for a conversation about his work, his books, his hurricane relief efforts, and his passion for Google. Also joining him in performance are Coral Reefers Nadirah Shakoor and Mac McAnally. Jimmy Buffett is the man behind many songs in the American vernacular, from “Margaritaville” to “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” to “Come Monday” and “It’s Five o’Clock Somewhere.” He has 8 Gold and 9 Platinum or multi-platinum albums from his thirty-year “summer job.” His books have graced the top of the New York Times bestseller list in both fiction and non-fiction. He’ll be speaking about his latest book, “Swine Not,” as well as his more classic works, such as “A Salty Piece of Land.” He is also behind the Margaritaville restaurants and casino. Portions of this appearance will be featured on Radio Margaritaville, his Sirius Radio Channel.
This event took place on October 23, 2008, as part of the Musicians@Google series.
