Boston Herald: “Buffett A Selling Machine”

The Boston Herald has an article exploring Buffett’s wealth: “A pirate looks at $40 million-plus: Behind the beach bum image, Jimmy Buffett is a selling machine”

For a guy who began busking on the streets of New Orleans in the early ’70s, Buffett hasn’t done too badly. After a few flop records early on, he hit gold and then platinum singing about booze and food: Not only did he change attitudes and latitudes, he changed his tax bracket.

Buffett’s most lucrative gig is touring. But these live shows also serve as promotion for the rest of King Parrothead’s products. Though record sales make up only a tiny part of his business, Buffett has pimped his best known song, “Margaritaville,” to market everything from his restaurants and cafes to his tequilas and frozen foods. Here’s a look at just a few of the offerings from his empire that help earn him an estimated $60 million to $70 million a year. His image may say beach bum, but his bank account says Buffett.

They spoke about how hot the Camden show was, and how to prepare for the Manassas show by drinking lots of water.

The Live at Wrigley DVD was mentioned and Jimmy discussed a little of what went into putting it together. One of the most moving things for Jimmy was playing City of New Orleans with Mac.

Miles and Jimmy also spoke about the Bama Breeze music video that was shot in Bay St. Louis last Friday. Jimmy said that the video will be released in early September, along with the single, on country radio. By shooting the video there, he hopes to keep attention on hurricane stricken areas. And Jimmy hopes it brought some light to Bay St Louis. After the shoot, Jimmy played some songs for the people gathered there.

They talked about the hurricane relief concert “From the Big Apple to the Big Easy,” and a little about the Hoot DVD that comes out August 15th.

Finishing up the discussion was talk about the new album, scheduled to be released in October. They are finishing it up and are down to just 3 or 4 more songs. “It’s not a star studded album, more of a Coral Reefer album.” The band Gomez will be featured on the album. Also, Jimmy covers a Mark Knopfler song, with Mark appearing on that track.
