I met Eric in Destin several years ago during spring break when he was living and playing locally in Destin. Since then he has moved to the Virgin Islands. What impressed me most about his music was his lyrical prowess as a singer songwriter.
Mark’s music has its own tropical style that I have enjoyed for many years. Mark has put out 11 albums and has played extensively along the west coast states, Mexico, Belize, Costa Rica and Canada! There’s not a day goes by that his music isn’t playing at work or home.
This is by far my favorite song of the hundreds of songs Jimmy has written or sung since the mid-seventies. I put forty to stern ten years ago, but the song still has a special meaning not only to me, but my twenty-one year old daughter as well.
This is a great song that I wanted to include on my web site. It’s about Eric’s friend Bob Bitchin. Bob is editor and chief of the greatest sailing life style magazine to date. I have been a subscriber for years.
