Greg “Fingers” Taylor

Greg “Fingers” Taylor (June 3, 1952 – November 23, 2023) was an American harmonica player best known for his work with Jimmy Buffett.

Taylor and Buffett met in 1970 when Taylor was a student at the University of Southern Mississippi. Soon after the two met, Taylor joined Larry Raspberry and The Highsteppers. In 1974, Buffett called Taylor to ask him to join the first official Coral Reefer Band. Taylor continued to play in the band until 2000.

Taylor has released five studio albums: Harpoon Man (1984), Chest Pains (1991), New Fingerprints (1992), Old Rock ‘n’ Roller (1996) and Hi Fi Baby (2003). He has also released two compilations: Greatest Hits (1998) and Back to the Blues (2000).

Over the years, Buffett has recorded a couple of Taylor’s songs. “Big Rig” was included on Buffett’s 1976 album Havana Daydreamin’ and Taylor and Buffett co-wrote “Miss You So Badly” included on Buffett’s 1977 album Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes. Buffett and Taylor also teamed up on “Some White People (Can Dance),” a staple of Taylor’s repertoire. The song was included on Taylor’s 1989 album Chest Pains.

As of 2006, Fingers Taylor was regularly touring with singer/songwriter K.D. Moore. Taylor is featured on Moore’s 2004 live album Live At The Tin Goose Saloon and Moore’s 2006 studio album Kickin’ It Island Style.
