HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) — The University of Southern Mississippi plans to put up a marker where Jimmy Buffett first met Coral Reefer Band harmonica player Greg “Fingers” Taylor in the early 1970s. Buffett had already graduated and was playing outside the student center between night classes. Taylor was a student and asked if he could join in. Taylor joined the Coral Reefer Band in 1974 and has retired after coming down with Alzheimer’s disease. A Taylor relative will attend the ceremony. Buffett is not expected to attend.
