Neil Finn Compliments Buffett on Weather With You

January 19th, 2007

Neil Finn, former front man for Crowded House, compliments Jimmy on his cover of “Weather With You” from his new album “Take The Weather With You” in an article in the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Still a standout is “Weather With You,” which Crowded House released in 1991 and which enjoyed a new life last year as the title track of Jimmy Buffett’s latest album.

“It kind of blew me away,” says Neil Finn, who formed Crowded House in 1985 after the demise of his previous band, Split Enz. “I like the way he did it.

“And I like that he did it. I don’t know much of his stuff, but he’s obviously got a very big fan base. He does huge shows. So I’m really happy he’s taken that song on. Good on him! I look forward to meeting him. I’ll give him a big thank-you for certain.”
