Jimmy Buffet Dies At Age 76
Jimmy Buffett is dead at the age of 76. The singer-songwriter best known for his iconic hit "Margaritaville" consistently performed 40 to 50 concerts a year over the past five decades, but was forced to cancel his most recent tour after being hospitalized for an undisclosed illness this past May. A posting to his social media sites said Buffett passed away Friday night surrounded by his friends, family, music and dogs. The statement said, "he lived his life like a song till the very last breath." Although Buffett became a billionaire through various business ventures, he always considered himself a road performer and said his greatest joy was performing before his millions of faithful fans known as Parrotheads.
