Funyy ancedote involving Captain Tony's saloon. A few years back Jerry jeff Walker had a 30min show on TNN, he had Jimmy Buffett on one week and they were singing songs and reminiscing about key West and the good old days. and jerry Jeff goes "What ever happened to old So&so? Haven't seen him in years!" Buffett counters well he died a coupla years back! Jerry Jeff, "Well no wonder I haven't seen him!" Buffett counters, "yea his ashes are up on a shelf behind the bar at Captain Tony's!" Jerry Jeff doesn't miss a beat, "Well hell, I have seen him then!" Cracked me up! Those two I'm sure could tell some stories about Old key West that would entertain! Would love to read that book if it ever got written.

When I was hanging out at the Capt's the bartender was telling me about a fight Buffett and Eric Clapton had on who was going to sleep on the pool table,and who would sleep under the table!

Wow you know the economy is dogsh*t when I actually have the time to go find this on the internet .....



Phil and Vic Latham and I were the bartenders at The Chart Room Bar at the Pier House in 70 and 71 and 72. Our friend Jerry Jeff Walker was living in Coconut Grove with a young woman named Murphy Fernandez, and Jerry Jeff and Murphy brought this out-of-work picker from Alabama to Key West for R&R in November 71. The first place they brought Jimmy Buffett was The Chart Room, and I was the bartender on duty. I handed JB a cold beer and told him, "The first one's free." I think that's when he knew that Key West was the place for him. Anyway, we looked at Phil as some kind of wild Caribbean adventurer because he'd spent a lot of time in the Virgin Islands with characters of dubious repute, and Phil had already been busted for trying to fly some pot in from Jamaica. He had been a bartender in New York, claimed to have dated Lauren Huttton before she was famous, lived with the Mamas and Papas on the beach in St. Thomas, hung out with gun runners and professional gamblers. Phil had plenty of tales to tell, and occasionally one of his old cohorts would breeze through Key West, and would fit the mold of modern-day pirate. Years later, Phil married Murphy Fernandez (she was one of six wives, as I recall, and the wives, eventually, all knew each other!) Sadly, Phil drowned in San Francisco Bay in the mid-1980s. He was hiding from various elements of the law and the bonding profession, bartending in Sausalito under an assumed name. Authenticity Note: this photo of Phil was taken on the bar deck at Louie's Back Yard, next door to the house where Jimmy lived. Phil may well be sitting in the same chair that Jimmy sat in when Jane took the picture for the Havana Daydreamin gatefold. 1999 Tom Corcoran,

I wondered into Capt. Tony's one night back in 1977. I had never been to Key West before, and neither had my wife, Marie. We were watching the stage show, a Liza Minelli impersonator. Later , Marie said to me " Everyone here is so friendly...the guys are even dancing with each other". I couldn't believe she didn't understand!

Regardless, she was right, everyone was cool...no one bothered anyone, no matter what. I had never seen the Gay and Straight worlds get along so well. Key West. and Capt. Tony's was a good example of just having fun.

Thaks for the info JParadise, I was turned on to Buffett in the early 70's by some close friend - rowdy's. Those first four or five albums were just right out of most peoples dreams. I would have loved to have experienced the Key West of the early 70's. There had to be much higher than normal segment of the population of KW that would qualify as " Characters!" Some great music and great adventures I'm sure!
