Review

Jimmy Buffett "has gregarious charm . . . and a bottomless well of stories to tell. . . . Reading A Pirate Looks at Fifty is like sitting with Buffett at a beachside bar, listening to him spin tales . . . discourse on life . . . and share nifty bits of geography and history."
--Time

"Fulfilling his peripatetic pirate lifestyle fantasies, rocker Jimmy Buffett took his family on a three-week trek around the Caribbean in celebration of his 50th. His colorful travelogue is interspersed with memoirs of his youth and music career--both of which revolve around his continuing search for the perfect fishing spot. But Buffett also imparts useful understandings gained from childhood through parenthood, and a valuable account of what it was like growing up in the ''50s."
--USA Today

"The fun-loving Man from Margaritaville parses his hell-bent half-century."
--People

"Buffett takes the occasion of his fiftieth birthday to tell us about himself, and he does so with candor and modesty. The person who emerges is not the sort of rock star who trashes hotel rooms and slugs paparazzi, but a charming, decent, wry, kind, and contemplative man . . . . Buffett''s evocation of the languid, louche Key West of the 1970''s draws on the same well of affection as his best songs."
--The New York Times Book Review

"America''s . . . good-time guy joins Hemingway, Dr. Seuss, and Steinbeck as one of the few who have topped both the fiction and nonfiction bestseller lists."
--Rolling Stone

Time on the Water

My Life
(In Four Hundred Words or Less)

When I was growing up in Alabama, the beginning of the new school year was a bad time. It meant the end of summer, which is my season. I packed away my shorts and T-shirts, put on socks, shoes, and my parochial--school uniform, and dragged my ass to class. To make matters worse, the first thing the nuns would make us all do on the first day back was to write about what we had done that summer. Having to recall it all while sitting in the antiseptic atmosphere of a classroom was like staring at the goodies in a bakery window with no money in your pocket. However, the bright side to the ordeal was that it reminded me of what lay ahead the next summer, and I carried those longings through the winter and spring until the last bell of the school year rang and I charged back to the beach. I don''t know why the idea of trying to put fifty years of living into the same format occurred to me, but it did, and since I am way too familiar with the format, here it is. In four hundred words or less, this is what has happened from early adolescence until now.

I broke out of the grip of Catholicism and made it through adolescence without killing myself in a car. I flunked out of college. I learned to play the guitar, lived on the beach, lived in the French Quarter, finally got laid, and didn''t go to Vietnam. I got back into school, started a band, got a job on Bourbon Street, graduated from college, flunked my draft physical, broke up my band, and went out on the road solo. I signed a record deal, got married, moved to Nashville, had my guitars stolen, bought a Mercedes, worked at Billboard magazine, put out my first album, went broke, met Jerry Jeff Walker, wrecked the Mercedes, got divorced, and moved to Key West. I sang and worked on a fishing boat, went totally crazy, did a lot of dope, met the right girl, made another record, had a hit, bought a boat, and sailed away to the Caribbean.

I started another band, worked the road, had my second and last hit, bought a house in Aspen, started spending summers in New England, got married, broke my leg three times in one year, had a baby girl, made more records, bought a bigger boat, and sailed away to St. Barts.
I got separated from the right girl, sold the boat, sold the house in Aspen, moved back to Key West, worked the road, and made more records. I rented an apartment in Paris, went to Brazil for Carnival, learned to fly, went into therapy, quit doing dope, bought my first seaplane, flew all over the Caribbean, almost got a second divorce, moved to Malibu for more therapy, and got back with the right girl.

I worked the road, moved back to Nashville, took off in an F-14 from an aircraft carrier, bought a summer home on Long Island, had another baby girl. I found the perfect seaplane and moved back to Florida. Cameron Marley joined me in the house of women. I built a home on Long Island, crashed the perfect seaplane in Nantucket, lived through it thanks to Navy training, tried to slow down a little, woke up one morning and I was looking at fifty, trying to figure out what comes next.

That might be all some of you want to hear, but for those who want to read a little more, continue on, for though I got most of it all into four hundred words, there is a lot more meat on the bone.

Time on the Water

We sailed from the port of indecision
Young and wild with oh so much to learn
The days turned into years
As we tried to fool our fears
But to the port of indecision I returned
--"Under the Lone Palm"

I wasn''t born in a trunk, I was born in a suitcase. But a trunk is where I''ve kept the scraps of my life for the past fifty years. My many attempts to begin a journal have all fizzled out after a few pages of notes. I have a considerable collection of notebooks, cocktail napkins, memo pads, legal tablets, sparsely filled binders, and mildew-spotted pages that sit in a cedar-lined steamer trunk in my basement on Long Island.

Almost five years ago, when I had the harebrained idea of doing a musical version of my friend Herman Wouk''s Don''t Stop the Carnival, Herman would send me pages of thoughts on the matter from his journal. He had kept a daily journal since 1946. To say the least, I was quite impressed. I envy those who have the discipline to keep a chronological record of events. I do not.

My plan has always been to keep adding to that mess in the trunk and, if I make it to my eighties and am still functioning in the brain-cell department, to retire to a tropical island, buy an old beach house, hire several lovely native girls as assistants, ship in a good supply of rum and red burgundy, and then spend my golden years making a complete picture out of the puzzle pieces in the old steamer trunk. That to me is the way any good romantic would look at his life: Live it first, then write it down before you go.

Any attempts at autobiography before the age of eighty seem pretty self-involved to me. There are a lot of smart middle-aged people but not many wise ones. That comes with "time on the water," as the fisherman says. So the following pages are another stab at completing a journal inspired by the trip that my wife planned for me to celebrate my fiftieth birthday, on December 25, 1996. I am glad to report that my first fifty years were, overall, a lot of goddamn fun. I just followed my instincts and kept my sense of humor. This journal narrates the trip itself as well as stories that the trip dredged up out of my past. I hope you enjoy the ride.

Questions and Answers

Now he lives in the islands
Fishes the pilin''s
And drinks his Green Label each day
Writing his memoirs, losing his hearing
But he don''t care what most people say
Cause through eighty-six years of perpetual motion
If he likes you, he''ll smile and he''ll say
Jimmy, some of it''s magic, some of it''s tragic
But I had a good life all the way
--"He Went to Paris"

Fifty. A mind-boggling thought for a war baby like me. Fifty is not "just another birthday." It is a reluctant milepost on the way to wherever it is we are meant to wind up. It can be approached in only two ways. First, it can be a ball of snakes that conjures up immediate thoughts of mortality and accountability. ("What have I done with my life?") Or, it can be a great excuse to reward yourself for just getting there. ("He who dies with the most toys wins.") I instinctively choose door number two.

I am not the kind of person to spend my fiftieth birthday in the self-help section of Borders bookstore looking for answers to questions that "have bothered me so," as somebody wrote once--those questions that somehow got taken off the multiple-choice quiz of life. It seems that here in America, in our presumably evolved "what about me" capitalistic culture, too many of us choose the wrong goals for the wrong reasons. Today spirituality and the search for deeper meaning are as confusing as the DNA evidence in the O. J. Simpson case. There is a labyrinth of choices, none of which seem to suit me. Granted, I have been too warped by Catholicism not to be cynical, but there are still too many men behind too many curtains for my taste. The creation, marketing, and selling of spirituality is as organized as a bingo game. By the time most of us war babies reached high school, we were pretty much derailed from the natural order of things. We were supposed to grow up, and that''s where my problems started. Parents, teachers, coaches, and guidance counselors bombarded me with the same question: "What are you going to do with your life?" I didn''t even want to think about that when I was fourteen. My teachers called me a daydreamer. They would write comments on my report card like, "He seems to live in a fantasy world and prefers that to paying serious attention to serious subject matters that will prepare him for life."

The life they were so hell-bent on preparing me for bored the living shit out of me. It seemed way too serious. I saw more meaning in the mysteries of the ocean and the planets than in theology or religion. I was too busy figuring out ways to skip school, go diving, and get laid. My heroes were not presidents; they were pirates. Emerging from adolescence with a healthy "lack of respect for the proper authorities,"x and a head full of romanticism and hero worship, I was able to come up with an answer.

Q. What are you going to do with your life?
A. Live a pretty interesting one.

I have been called a lot of things in these fifty years on the good old planet Earth, but the thing I believe I am the most is lucky. I have always looked at life as a voyage, mostly wonderful, sometimes frightening. In my family and friends I have discovered treasure more valuable than gold. I have seen and done things that I read about as a kid. I have dodged many storms and bounced across the bottom on occasion, but so far Lady Luck and the stars by which I steer have kept me off the rocks. I have paid attention when I had to and have made more right tacks than wrong ones to end up at this moment--with a thousand ports of call behind me and, I hope, a thousand more to see. My voyage was never a well-conceived plan, nor will it ever be. I have made it up as I went along.

This is a book about what Jimmy Buffett, his family and entourage did for his 50th birthday (Dec 25, 1996). It''s kind of like a 400+ page blog -- but before blogs existed, so he wrote yet another NY Times bestseller.

On the whole, I don''t understand the one-star reviews. I think some of these "parrotheads" were caught by surprise at how wealthy they''ve made Mr. Buffett, because this dude is RICH. I mean, c''mon, this birthday getaway included two planes (his own Grumman Albatross -- for him, his guy pals, his young son and all the stuff in both entourages -- and his other plane -- a Cessna Citation II jet for his wife, daughters and her pals). Their trip itinerary covered Costa Rica, Colombia, Manaus, Brazil (the heart of the Amazon), Trinidad & Tobago, the Grenadines (Bequia, St. Vincent, Grenada), St. Barts, the Bahamas and back home. 3 weeks in paradise, flying around, fishing and partying. He didn''t surf all that much, I was sorry to hear. He mused that this was the "first time in ten years we haven''t spent Christmas in Aspen." Oh yeah, included in the entourage were his pilots, personal assistants, etc.

So much of the book was taken up with the day-to-day goings-on with their trip. For the most part, Buffett family vacations seem to be separate-but-equal affairs as Jimmy revealed that he and his wife have different ideas about transportation, people to hang with, things to do, etc -- thus he and wife came together for some things, but most of the time it seemed Jimmy was trying to get in some surfing and fishing and hang with his kids.

He says he''s "not a deep thinker," but all you have to do is listen to some of his ballads and you know that''s a lie. In this book, he reveals some interesting facts about his life growing up, how he and his late father strongly disagreed on the arc of his life and how it came about that he became a musician. There were some moments when he let his hair down (as it were) and he discussed how he and his Dad healed their relationship -- and how he tried to keep close to him as his condition worsened with Alzheimer''s.

The part that was most irritating for me was his constant bitching about his years in Catholic school. You''d think a healthy, happily-married rock star/writer/surfer/producer/pilot/fisherman mogul-dude turning 50 with the ability to satisfy every material desire could let that stuff go, but he kept it up throughout the book. Another irritant was his constant mentioning of brands. His own stuff -- only the best of course (and why the hell not??) -- and other more mundane stuff was all "branded." You wonder if Buffett the "bidnessman" worked out endorsement deals with some of these companies when he wrote the book.

He''s also been fortunate to have met a lot of people -- famous and not so famous -- at the top of their respective fields and clearly, many of these people are good friends.

I could relate to some of the stories he told as I was fortunate to have hung out on St. Bart''s a couple decades ago and his stories of the place brought back some good memories. That airport IS something else, by the way. He should''ve done some more surfing in Costa Rica though. I''m sure he has since this was written.

Another thing was that it was obvious he''s kind of a private guy and although with this book he gives the parrotheads some red meat to chew on, he definitely holds a lot of cards close to the vest. We don''t learn hardly anything about his wife, for example, other than she''s kind of a hard ass and that they''ve worked things out so each gets what they want. I get the impression that she''s the gatekeeper in the relationship -- she keeps him focused on certain things or else he''d be doing his adventure thing the whole time. She obviously plays a major role in the family unit is what I''m saying. In fairness, though, his admiration for her appears to be sincere.

The book had a lot of anecdotes and interesting factoids about his career, especially the early years, too, although I''d have liked to have found out more about Fingers Taylor, his old harmonica player and why they''re not playing together anymore. Well, he''s had probably 100 or more Coral Reefers, but Taylor was a critical part of his early sound and I''ve often wondered about that.

Buffett lives the kind of life most can only dream about. He really does get to do almost anything he wants -- but he''s real bright, a good "bidnessman" and understands that it''s all because of the incredible loyalty of the parrotheads -- who rival the deadheads in their devotion and willingness to spend tons of money on Buffett concert tickets, food at his restaurants, and all kinds of overpriced trinkets, t-shirts, sunglasses, you-name-it, not to mention CDs, Mp3s, etc. He''s been able to sell the "Margaritaville" lifestyle world-wide and it just keeps on humming. Not bad for a former college-dropout New Orleans busker -- whose best work was done more than 30 years ago. This continued loyalty has made Buffett immensely wealthy. This book is about how he spends a small part of this wealth in his free time -- in addition to the stories and asides about his interesting and eventful life -- that are much more interesting than the logistics of the trip -- although the time spent in customs hell in Barranquilla was pretty funny. Even the wealthiest folks sometimes have to put up with crap.

All in all, it was a pretty interesting read. 3 Stars.

This travel diary, autobiography, Buffett philosophy, & memoir is something I''ve had on the shelf for several years, and not too excited about pulling it down for a read. I''m not a huge Buffett fan (he had only a couple of big musical hits with Cheese Burgers in Paradise and Margaritaville, but he continues to record music, publish books, and has a rabid fan base of Parrotheads). The dude is laid back, loves squeezing every bit of life he can into each day, loves his family, has no religion (he dwells on that issue a few too many times......a disillusioned Catholic).......and flying his seaplane and fishing are his addictions. Basically, Buffett takes a 3 week seaplane trip into the Caribbean, Central and South America to celebrate and reflect on his life and turning fifty. Actually, the book was published in 1998 and Buffett is turning 60 this month.......I wonder if he''ll write another book about turning 60?

Buffett has been lucky in life. Though he''s done things in his past that he can look back upon and laugh about (or breathe a sigh of relief that he survived), at age fifty he reflects back. He has considerably cleaned up his act, though he''s still no angel. The book is part travelog and history, autobiography, Buffett philosophy, great and not-so great Buffett stories from his rock and roll past. A mishmash of wherever his mind wanders. He''s a great story-teller and his laid-back sense of adventure is lots of fun. He''s been a wild man during his life and done things that I''d never do, but I can certainly laugh about (and sometimes relate to). I too was a wild man in my younger days. I''m not proud of everything I always did, but thank goodness you get smarter with age, and I am now a saint (ha ha).

The dude, the Caribbean, sailing, flying, his music, fishing, and lots of odd-balls stories........lots of fun. It''s a book for mature audiences, so the kids have to wait to read this one. I think it''s a book for any Buffett-lover and a great "guy" book. Mellow and wild. I''m still no fan of his music, but I did enjoy this book. I certainly recommend it.

"A Pirate Turns Fifty" may be one of those idioms of that time and place where a generation of North Americans found some sense of becoming, and then, of being, the first generation of people born beyond the confines of an adversarial view of the human condition.
If you enjoy the humor intrinsic in the human experience, Jimmy Buffet serves up a feast of anedotes, yarns, and healthy fictional illusions that repeatedly hit on the folly of taking things too seriously. This little volume exposes Buffet as a truly gifted humorist in a time when humor was verging on the obscene and purely pessimistic side of life. Interleafed with autobiographical sketches, Buffet does a wonderful job at entertaining in the style that Mark Twain so lavishly conjured into American Literature.
If you''re a Boomer, this is Jimmy''s BOOMER ON THE HALF-SHELL, --you''ll love it; --and you''ll be looking for the sequel. =======> ''"Bop til you drop", ...he whispered.''

This book was 420 pages and about 150 too many. The parts that dealt with his experiences trying to break into the music business were quite interesting. However the stories about his journeys in the Carribean, South America, and elsewhere all seem to be a blur. After a while, it all sounds the same. If you travel alot and/or have similar interests as Jimmy Buffett you might like this book very much. However, not being one who flies my own plane or visits the Carribean every winter, I could not make a full connection. At times, Jimmy''s life sounds like a nice fantasy. But as he provides more detail, his audience seems to narrow. I wish Jimmy focused more on how his experiences influenced some of his songs. He does do it a little but I would have liked to know the history behind some more of his songs. I prefer Jimmy as a song-writer who writes four to five minute songs as opposed to his memoir writing which extends to 420 pages. Look for Tales From Margaritaville instead where the little stories are more focused.
