US singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett, best known for his 1970's hit Margaritaville, has died aged 76.
Jimmy passed away peacefully on the night of September 1 surrounded by his family, friends, music and dogs says his publicist.
They say he lived his life like a song till the very last breath and will be missed beyond measure by so many.
The cause of Buffett's death was not given but he had spent time in hospital in recent months.
He later moved to Florida, where he helped to create the tropical rock genre, which would later become more mainstream thanks to artists such as Jack Johnson.
Buffett made his musical breakthrough with his 1977 album Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes, which included the song Margaritaville, which enjoyed 22 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
His other hits include Fins, Come Monday and Son of a Son of a Sailor.
