Legendary singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett, known for his song “Margaritaville” along with his laid-back island style, has died. He was 76.
“Jimmy passed away peacefully on the night of September 1st surrounded by his family, friends, music and dogs,” a statement on Buffett’s official website reads.
The statement continued, “He lived his life like a song till the very last breath and will be missed beyond measure by so many.”
While no cause of death was revealed, Buffett was briefly hospitalized in May to address some issues that required immediate attention.
