Origination of the term parrot head
Reputedly, when performing at Timberwolf Ampitheater in Kings Island, OH, Jimmy commented on all those crazy folks in the crowd from the Cincinnati area wearing hawaiian shirts and parrot hats and who keep coming back to every show. "Just like deadheads," Jimmy commented. Coral Reefer Timothy B. Schmit replied, "yea, Parrot Heads!"
