The Untimely Passage of Jimmy

( From Jeff A., CPHC Prez: )

On Saturday September 2, 2023, we all woke up to the news that Jimmy Buffett had passed away. We all knew that Jimmy had health issues, but while the lack of public information may have indicated that these issues were serious, I know that I always maintained a hope that any day Jimmy would announce concerts for this fall or next spring. This hope is what made his passing a shock for me and meant that Saturday was a day to process the memories, the songs, and the happiness Jimmy brought, and also the grief of knowing he was gone.

There have been lots of posts on social media from many people all over the world  recalling songs and quotes from songs that impacted their lives. These tributes show how Jimmy's music,not only inspired and brought joy to them, but also comforted people during difficult times.

His official obituary can be found here.

While we all have our favourite songs and lines, I think these lines from "Here We Are" are particularly meaningful as we look ahead after 27 years a a club. Even Jimmy was surprised at how long he could do what he loved.

Who would have thought this game, this flame would still be burning
Who would have guessed that all these blenders would still be churning
Not even we on our bended knees could have ever blessed it
Not even I with my head in the sky would have ever guessed it

Here we are, maybe it's because in spite of all the work we do
It's the child in us we really value
Here we are, with our fins up and our feathers flashing
Here we are, with our coconut shell brassieres chanting

Here we are
Here we are
