Jimmy Buffett, 'Margaritaville' singer-songwriter, dies - Los Angeles Times

QuoteJimmy Buffett, the singer-songwriter who parlayed his passion for Gulf Coast beach life into a billion-dollar Margaritaville empire, died Friday. He was 76.

Buffett's death was announced on his official website, which said he "passed away peacefully on the night of September 1st surrounded by his family, friends, music and dogs. He lived his life like a song till the very last breath and will be missed beyond measure by so many."

The announcement gave no cause or location of his death. In May, he had revealed a brief but unexpected hospital stay that forced him to postpone a concert in South Carolina.

A storyteller who specialized in tales of beach bums, burnouts, and small-time hustlers, Buffett chronicled coastal life with a light touch and an affectionate sense of humor. Developing a sun-bleached spin on country-rock that he'd wryly dub "Gulf and Western," he first drifted into the mainstream with the easy-rolling "Come Monday" in 1974 but it was 1977's "Margaritaville," his lone Top 10 hit, that provided the foundation for the rest of his career.

A few months back. One of the worst leaders in the Qanon movement, Michael Protzman, died in a motorcycle accident. He was famous for claiming JFK and JFK jr were still alive and would return Real Soon Now to reinstate Trump. Hundreds, if not thousands, left jobs and family to follow this ex parrot of a cult leader.
