Myles from New OrleansBuffett broke his leg three times in 1978 and 1979, the first time was in a baseball game with The Eagles. Why Dave from Sante Fe thinks Buffett broke it from flipping his seaplane in 1978 makes zero sense since Jimmy didn't fly a seaplane until 1985.
Annie from Lexington,He broke it 3 times in a year; fiat was softball game...so, could be all 3 reasons
Steve from Brighton, MiI would bet I saw Jimmy at Hill Auditorium in Michigan around 1978 and he played with a cast on his leg. He sang stepped on a flop top broke my leg and had to limp on back home.
Dave from Santa Fe, NmThe only time I've seen JB with a broken leg was at the Santa Barbara bowl and it was due to an accident he had in his seaplane when it flipped over during a landing. If you were at the Bowl that night do you remember the moths all over the stage and Jimmy complaining about "bug abuse" :)
Huey from St Augustine, FlI believe the reason Jimmy Buffett's leg was in a cast on his SNL appearance in 1978 was due to an injury in a softball game. He broke his leg in a softball game that year. I never was aware that he broke it in a motorcycle accident.
Lalah from Wasilla, AkOthers might think Jimmy Buffett's greatest song is Margaritaville but this is my favorite. As a kid I spent a lot of time on sailboats with my dad and grandfather. I miss them both now.
