Jimmy Buffett playing the myth of the beach bum philosopher

While performing in Sydney, singing cult-entertainer Jimmy Buffet fell headfirst from the tall concert stage where he reportedly remained unconscious for several minutes, according to the Telegraph.

Concerned fans (who refer to themselves as parrotheads) waited to see the status of their folk hero despite being ordered to leave the overflowing Hordern Pavillion.

64-year old Buffet is resting in stable condition, according to TMZ.
