In 1977 JB was drinking a margarita at an airport bar when a notion popped into his head. Five minutes later he had written down the complete lyrics to "Margaritaville" which made him hyper-famous and filthy rich. He now employs 5,000 to sell "fun escapism" at his Margaritaville restaurants, hotels, etc.
