Famed musician contributes to oil spill relief efforts
“I’ve got boats to build” is a familiar lyric on the License to Chill album of Southern Miss alumnus Jimmy Buffett, and building boats was on his mind as he visited the USM Gulf Coast Research Laboratory (GCRL) in Ocean Springs Sunday.
The singer, songwriter and 1969 graduate consulted with Southern Miss President Martha Saunders and her Oil Spill Response Team of scientists. Discussions focused on possible solutions to rescuing wildlife and marine life following the sinking of the Deepwater Horizon drilling platform and the subsequent oil spill disaster. Buffett is interested in strategies for creating a “voice for the Gulf of Mexico.”
