But before he became the flip-flop music legend and the CEO of Margaritville, Inc. there was the kid from Pascagoula, Mississippi. There have been a lot of changes in attitudes, changes in latitudes in James William Buffett’s life and Ryan White the author of SPRINGSTEEN: ALBUM BY ALBUM, who has twice been named one of the top feature writers in the country by the Society for Features Journalism explores them all JIMMY BUFFETT, A GOOD LIFE ALL THE WAY.
