Buffett’s Mercedes Benz Stolen and Recovered

Posted in Jimmy Buffett News | Comments Off

From Local10.com: “Police use GPS to nab teen accused of stealing Jimmy Buffett’s Mercedes Benz

A 17-year-old boy faces a grand theft auto charge after he stole a Mercedes-Benz belonging to Jimmy Buffet after the singer left his keys in the car, police said.

According to a Palm Beach police report, Buffett’s personal representative, Darin Hinson, alerted them to the theft, which occurred sometime between 10 p.m. Tuesday and 8 a.m. Wednesday.

Hinson told police Buffett returned home Tuesday night and parked in the driveway, leaving the keys in the car.

Using the global positioning system in the car, police were able to track the Mercedes to a gas station in Riviera Beach and then south on Interstate 95 to another gas station in Lake Worth.

A Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office deputy was the first to arrive at the gas station and found the stolen car parked outside.

The keys to the Mercedes were resting on the front right tire of a Dodge Caravan parked next to it, police said.

Standing next to the van was Michael Hardy, who was seen on surveillance video at the Riviera Beach gas station driving the stolen car, police said.

Hardy was taken to the Palm Beach Police Department for questioning, where he admitted to trading drugs for the car, police said.

Hardy told police he exchanged $100 worth of crack cocaine that he cut to make it look like $200 worth so he could get the car. Hardy said he gave the drugs to a man he knew only as “John” in Riviera Beach.

Buffett, 68, is best known for his songs “Cheeseburger in Paradise” and “Margaritaville.”

Buffett returns home to Pascagoula

Posted in Jimmy Buffett News | Comments Off

From GulfLive: “Jimmy Buffett returns home, enjoys lunch at Scranton’s in Pascagoula

Jimmy Buffett made his own Pascagoula Run Monday morning. The Pascagoula native was in New Orleans over the weekend, and rented a car with longtime friend Franz Hanning and drove from the Big Easy down highway 90 and into Jackson County and had lunch at Scranton’s in Pascagoula. Hanning is also a Pascaoula native and is the brother-in-law of Scranton’s co-owner Jack Pickett.

“I got a call about 10 Sunday night that they might be coming,” Richard Chenoweth, also a Scranton’s co-owner, said. “They were supposed to be there at 11, and I didn’t tell anyone but my daughter Amy (the manager of Scranton’s) and I didn’t tell her until right around 11. They walked in about 10 minutes later.”

Buffett appears with Anders Osborne in New Orleans

Posted in Jimmy Buffett News | Comments Off

From Nola.com: “Jimmy Buffett made surprise appearance with Anders Osborne at Tipitina’s on Saturday

Anders Osborne typically invites special guests to join him for his annual Holiday Spectacular concerts at Tipitina’s. On Saturday (Dec. 6), the second night of this year’s Spectacular, those guests included a surprise sit-in by Jimmy Buffett.

During the sold-out show’s first set, Buffett joined Osborne, Dave and Tommy Malone, and Osborne’s all-star band for the New Orleans standard “Iko Iko.” Buffett took a seat onstage alongside the others to strum an acoustic guitar and sing.

He’d spent the first part of the evening watching the show from his perch atop an equipment case at the side of the stage. He was non-committal when photographer Erika Goldring asked him if he planned to get up onstage. “He said, ‘Aw, I don’t know. I just came here to watch.’ He thought they were going to be singing Christmas songs.”
