Buffett Making the Rounds in Boston

Buffett had Harvard crowd on a string

Folks who showed up at Harvard yesterday to hear Jimmy Buffett talk about the role of celebrities in government came this close to being serenaded by Mr. Margaritaville. When a Parrothead in the audience handed Buffett a children’s guitar and requested that he play a tune, Buffett tried to oblige. But when the songwriter — who’d been invited to speak by his friend and fellow Floridian former US Senator Bob Graham — was tuning the tiny guitar, a string snapped. Oh well. By the way, Buffett’s new CD and DVD, ”Live at Fenway,” is out now.

And this was in yesterdays:

Jimmy Buffett paid a visit to the ballpark on Yawkey Way yesterday to mark the release of his new CD and DVD, ”Live at Fenway Park,” recorded in 2004. Standing on the right-field roof, the principal Parrothead was asked if he might consider becoming the Bosox GM. Maybe, said Buffett, but only if the team moves to St. Bart’s and plays exclusively day games. Today, Buffett’s at Harvard’s Institute of Politics to talk to a class taught by his old friend, former Florida Senator Bob Graham.
