I don't know Jimmy Buffet nor did I sleep on the beach after drinking all night that much, but that was my generation, how dare the beauties claim his music. A 30 New York princess may listen to Jimmy Buffet and associate his melodic acoustic style with "partying" with her friends over a glass or two of wine on 5th Ave, but she wasn't around when Jimmy began as a drunken beach bum so I think she needs to get her own music----say Hillary Duff or Paris Hilton's single. No you don't have to be the same age as me or Jimmy to love his music, but its humorous to us older folks to hear youngsters claim Pink Floyd, or Led Zeppelin as the greatest-----when in fact we grew up with this music.
Oh well, I'm glad they are enjoying 40 year music-----I wonder if Pearl Jam, Dave Mathews or Wide Spread will endure the test of time?
What music defines you and who do you see lasting? Say when you turn on the radio in 30 years---who's music will they still play?
