JB Appears On The Late Show With David Letterman

May 22nd, 2008

Jimmy Buffett appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman on Wednesday night to discuss his new book “Swine Not?”.

It was Jimmy’s first appearance on Letterman since November 22nd, 1996 when he performed “Ho Ho Ho And A Bottle Of Rum” off his then-new album “Christmas Island.”

They discussed the novel, and how songwriting and writing books is similar. They then talked about the France/Ecstasy incident. Jimmy mentioned that the day before he was detained by French authorities, he had played a show for the Marines at the US Embassy in Paris.

After the commercial break, Jimmy performed “Volcano” with Mac McAnally, Ralph MacDonald, and Paul Schaeffer and the CBS Orchestra. Also, for a web-only exclusive, they performed “Bama Breeze.” You can view that performance here.
