On Saturday night Jimmy Buffett hosted a star-studded party to celebrate his wife Jane’s 60th birthday:

Billy Joel paid tribute to Jimmy Buffett’s wife at her 60th birthday party, praising her for their long-standing partnership. Joel told us, “I said that Jane Buffett knows the secret of staying happily married to a rock and roll man. And I sang Otis Redding’s ‘Dock of the Bay.’ ”

The star-studded party at Buffett’s North Haven home Saturday night had VIPs partying in a tent and treated to performances by Joel, Jon Bon Jovi, Buffett — who wed Jane in 1977 — and James Taylor. Guests included Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Jane Fonda, Jack Nicholson, Harrison Ford, Calista Flockhart, Richard Gere, Anjelica Huston and Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters.

Happy birthday Jane!

    So now we know from where Savannah Jane’s middle name came.
     
    Congratulations and thank you for being what some might call a saint for your part in making the marriage work.  For sixty… or any age, for that matter, you look terrific. Many more birthdays and… anniversaries.  Buffett fan since the mid-seventies, watched him perform many times at the Universal Amphitheatre, visited backstage, and, I must confess, took a cold beer from the ice chest of the late Ed Bradley.

    What a pleasure to read about a couple still together since 1977!  And also what a pleasure to see a couple whose ages actually go together well.  I’m a little tired of those guys who think with their you know whats and marry the trophy wives!  There’s nothing with a little experience on both sides of the aisle!  Many happy returns of the day to Mrs Buffett.

    Happy Birthday Jane….  60th is a BIG ONE!!   You look terrific! 
    So refreshing to know you’ve had a wonderful and successful marriage…    I’ve followed it over the years,and know that it wasn’t easy going much of the time…  If you listen to the lyrics in so many of his songs… they say a mouthful..   I especially enjoyed watching the interview on the Johnny Carson show..”dating” and “space” … you in living in CA and JB living  in Key West….   How entertaining was that one!!
    Still… your hubby is the one behind the scenes with the talent, graciousness, generosity, thoughtfulness,
    etc.   to have made it all possible.  It’s for sure a “team effort”  and a two-way street and you have both made
    it look much easier than it is….. I’ll finish by saying … I somewhat speak from experince…  I just recently  lost my husband in April,  married 46 yrs,,, serious JB fans…his music and songs, mostly the old ones, always could lift my spirits … Love of boating, flying, fishing, carribean islands, tropical music, etc. and one wonderful adopted son and also a granddaughter (Little Miss Magic)   I miss my guy enormously… He had a beautiful JB smile and personality so comparible…   I’m 68 and he was 69… Thanks for showing such a good example!  
    PS…  I’m currently enjoying his latest connection with Zac Brown & Band  (But Zac has gotta lose that toque!!)
    LOL!!!!
