Buffett is one of the music business' singular success stories. He has parlayed an unlikely subject—getting shitfaced while cruising the Gulf Coast in your power boat, basically—into a multimillion-dollar industry, a perennial place on Forbes' list of highest-grossing entertainers, and the most passionate concert audience this side of the Deadheads.I wish I could figure out how to play songs on here, because I'd love to share one of my favorite Buffett songs. Yep, that one. Fruitcakes. "I want my junior mints!" And yeah, the "Clash" is finished, and turned in. And I think it's awful. Be lucky if I get a "C". [UPDATE: He liked it! :-o With a couple of clarifications of what I wrote, but.....wow. I thought it sucked, actually. I could get to liking this. "You've done it again, presented me with a fabulous essay into which you've put a tremendous amount of research and thought."]
