Jimmy Buffett and Neil Young: Margaritaville Meets Greendale

Jimmy Buffett and Neil Young - Pirates Looking at 60*

OK, so Thrasher was trying to decide how to caption this photo of Jimmy Buffett and Neil from the Benefit For Museum Of Natural History in New York City on 16 November, 2005.

Thrashette suggested "Cheeseburger in Paradise vs. Got No T-Bone". Nope. Too obscure. How about "Son of a Sailor and Son of a Writer"? Not quite.

The photo seems ripe for some funny captions. But alas, the creative juices didn't quite come up with a real winner other than "Margaritaville Meets Greendale".

Suggest your captions by dropping a comment below.

Also, Neil did play a song at the benefit but have not been able to determine what song. So if any of you high rollers that attended are reading this, you can drop us line and let us know. Yeah, right...

UPDATE: New York Daily News: "Exhibit on Darwin creates
Bush bash at museum gala"
"The Daily Show's John Stewart introduced Neil Young. Along with singing his hits, the venerable rocker sat down at an antique organ and performed "When God Made Me," his challenge to fundamentalism.

Young agreed that the Darwin show "couldn't come at a better time, with what's going on with the neocons."

He allowed that Bush might truly believe in Genesis and not be pandering to the evangelicals. "I've never met him," he told us. "I've seen some of the things he does, but I'm not sure."

* - Caption suggested by commenter below. Note for non-Parrotheads: Buffett wrote a song called "A Pirate Looks at 40" a long time ago... Thanks!

I don't know, but seems as if Neil has been taking marketing lessons from Jimmy lately.
