Have you heard the legend of how Don stole Jimmy Buffett's TV Guide?
While performing at Sloppy Joe's in Key West, Florida, Saugatuck's local musician, Don Middlebrook and a friend thought that they would take a moped ride around the island. What started out as an innocent joy ride soon became a hunt to find Jimmy Buffett's house. Based on local information they had gathered, they thought they were close, but were not convinced. That's when Don peeked into the mailbox and spotted Jimmy Buffett's TV Guide. Contradictory stories exist as to what happened next. Don wrote a song to apologize, claiming he found the TV Guide on the ground. Witnesses say that he stole it out of the mailbox.
Years later Don recorded and toured with the most famous Coral Reefer of all, Greg "Fingers" Taylor. Greg claimed that Jimmy was aware of the theft and wanted his TV Guide back. Don's song of apology claimed that he did not have it. Friends say it is in his house. No charges against Don were ever filed and the existence and/or the whereabouts of the TV Guide that inspired this song have never been validated. Jimmy Buffett has since moved from that home in Key West and now has a P.O. Box. As the song goes, you can always steal from a pirate.
