    Default Xmas Question ?

    Who is this Christmas baby? Born 12/25/46, I am one of eight authors to reach #1 on both NY Times bestseller lists, fiction and non-fiction. A list that includes Steinbeck, Hemingway, and Dr. Seuss. I wrote the song "I Don't Know (Spicoli's Theme)" for the movie 'Fast Times at Ridgemont High'. I hold a bachelor's degree in history and a multi-engine pilot's license. I have a licensed beer label, own a restaurant chain and co-own another. Oh, I am also an avid flyfisher. Who am I?

    Buffett sang the song, but he didn't write it.

    Better keep her, she's way too sharp! Buffett also has been part owner of minor league baseball teams, wrote a song for the Miami Dolphins, had like 9gold and 8 platinum albums, and helped with hurricane and oil spill recovery in the Gulf, among other things. Not bad for a parrothead. milt.

    You're probably correct... he is given "credit" for the song on his Wiki page and the FastX page, I didn't dig any deeper than that. milt.

    Hit a wall (in the few minutes I had to 'research') but came up with Big Zero on who actually wrote the song.
