Parrrotheads and parakeets all over the world are bawling for Jimmy Buffett after he suffered a major cut on his head from falling off the stage in Australia today. One witness tells TMZ that Jimmy was singing out the last song of his show when a lighting tech blinded him by flashing a gigantic spotlight across the stage. 64-year-old Jimmy couldn’t see and he accidentally stepped his way to BOOM. A different witness claims that the spotlight had nothing to do with Jimmy’s fall. They say Jimmy tried to reach over to touch one of his fan’s hands and he didn’t realize that he was that close to the edge.
Jimmy hit his head and had cartoon birds circling around his head for at least 5 minutes. When Jimmy came to, an ambulance shuffled him off to the hospital where he’s currently listed in stable condition. Jimmy is expected to stay overnight for observation.
Judging by the video, I’m not sure which witness to go with. I’m leaning towards the second since it looks like Jimmy thought his foot would land on safe ground and it didn’t. Sort of like going on a trust walk with Stevie Wonder. We’ll all pray to a giant margarita (and cheeseburger) that Jimmy fully recovers very soon.
