It would be tough to confuse Warren Buffett with singer Jimmy Buffett, although they have the same last name and both of them like to play a stringed musical instrument. (Check out the photo below of Warren playing the ukulele.)
But the two Buffetts do share one important trait: they're both very good at making money. (They also share a longtime friendship.)
Ahead of his first-ever concert in Paris, The International Herald Tribune profiles Jimmy Buffett and his business acumen. It also extensively quotes Warren talking about Jimmy in a telephone interview with the newspaper's reporter.
"I admire his business even more than mine. He got the singing genes as well as the commercial genes. I'm envious."
Jimmy Buffett has turned his 1977 song "Margaritaville" into a profitable brand invoking the image of a laid-back tropical paradise. There are 13 Margaritaville Cafes around the world along with 43 Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurants, named after another J. Buffett hit.
