  • Walked into a beach bar back in the late seventies and listened to him play guitar an sing while sitting on a stool with a fish bowl for tips on the floor.

    He was going thru some hard times but the place was packed , and the beer was cold.

    Couldn't remember the name of the place if I had too, but now days, even locating the car keys seems more difficult than it used to be.

    Some one keeps moving things that I set down.

    Have to admit, I really didn't know who he was at the time.

    Thirty years later became a parrot head and even went to one of his concerts in Pittsburg.

    He helped a lot of new artist get started , and his Margaritaville radio station has always been a favorite.

    Fins up and may he sail on forever.
