Professor Buffett at Berklee College

Jimmy Buffett spent some time recently with Livingston Taylor (the brother of James Taylor) at Berklee College of Music in Boston for a seminar on “The Future of the Music Business”.

From Liv Taylor.com:

My friend Jimmy Buffett dropped by Berklee the other day to teach a class on the future of the music business. Jimmy has been a valuable teacher of mine over the many years we have known each other, and I am so grateful to him for sharing his knowledge and experience with the students.

Jimmy Attends Dinner Party to Honor John Alexander

The Houston Chronicle reports that Jimmy Buffett appeared at a Houston dinner party on Friday night to honor John Alexander: “Dinner party dishes out praise, humor

Few at the Hotel ZaZa dinner Friday night could have anticipated the entertaining barrage of praise, humor and gentle barbs continually lobbed at artist John Alexander.
David Berg launched his playful tribute by introducing himself as Jimmy Buffett, the real star seated at a nearby table.

Among the many taking turns toying with Alexander’s image and/or praising him were Buffett, artist James Surls, collector Marilyn Oshman, 60 Minutes reporter Steve Kroft, MFAH director Peter Marzio, and Timothy Eaton, who represents Alexander through Eaton Fine Art in West Palm Beach, Fla. Of course, Alexander responded several times, his relaxed and jocular nature adding to the fun.
