Jimmy Buffett's

Video Message

'I'm on the Mend'

1/28/2011 10:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jimmy Buffett channeled his inner Mark Twain for a message to the fans who thought he kicked the bucket in Australia -- saying, "The reports of my death are grossly over-exaggerated."

Showing off his new bandages, Jimmy recorded a video update about his health following a horrific onstage fall during a show this week -- explaining, "I'm on the mend."

Buffett seems pretty bummed out about canceling his next concert ... saying, "We were so looking forward to Auckland ... not only the show, but I was going fishing and surfing ... but now I got to go home and heal up."

Jimmy says he'll be performing again shortly -- insisting, "The show goes on."

I wish he would die. I freaking hate the old people that sing along to his stupid songs, buy his stupid books, eat at his stupid burger shacks. Baby boomer bull and self-absorbed twit. Please die from too many burgers, margaritas, and pot and fall into the ocean. The baby boomers think you are a god, but younger people fail to see it. GO away, six feet under, you didn't hit your hit hard enough. When I saw the video I was praying it split you open and you died. Damn hippie, still alive to burden us all with your tripe. Oh yeah, nice shirt *******. Go get some citracal with fiber.

How can some of you be so rude. Were you raised by wolves? If you don'f have anything nice to say then please don't say anything. Comments about his age are hurtful. Let me remind you that unless you die "young" - you will be "old" some day and wishing you had the energy and spunk he has. Try being nice and saying nice things - you will feel so much better about yourself.

Am I missing something? Isn't he famous for the song "Cheeseburger in Paradise"? Is there more than that horrific song?

Clive,
Odds are you won't live to be 64. If your self hatred doesn't do you in, your attitude will get you killed.

if there is such a thing as reincarnation, you could do worse than coming back as Jimmy. He's had a great ride.

Hey, Clive - s-h-h-h,I've got a secret to tell you. You won't be 12 forever. Some day you will be an old fart and some punk kid will laugh at you too.
