About Charleston Miles
Whenever Jimmy Buffett is out and about, you can bet you will see a very large man following him around or standing nearby keeping a close eye on the area. That man is his bodyguard Charleston Miles.
Our Experiences With Charleston Miles
We ran into Charleston throughout the weekend during our November 2009 trip to St. Bart’s. We were in St. Bart’s for the Le Select 60th Anniversary celebration. We were watching a band play at Le Select from another restaurant. He was standing just outside the restaurant in the middle of the street. I approached him on a dare and asked if he was Charleston. He said “Yes” and was very nice. I asked him if Jimmy was around and he said “No”. I knew Jimmy was somewhere in sight, but rumor has it he was wearing a disguise.
While the concert was getting started, we saw Charleston watching over Gustavia Harbour as Jimmy and the gang pulled up in small boat. Everyone was, for the most part, calm and orderly before the show, so he didn’t have too hard of a job that night.
The morning after the show we were having crepes at the Le Creperie and he was sitting at the table behind us with one of the tour managers. We managed to snap a couple of photos, although they are only side-shots…
