David Geffen is a Brooklyn-born record executive, producer for film and theater, and philanthropist, with an estimated net worth of $5.1 billion dollars. David Geffen is most widely known as the founder of Geffen Records, where he signed Donna Summer, Nirvana, Blink-182, and most famously, released John Lennon's "Double Fantasy" album. He also started a film production company and was one third of the original Dreamworks company.
David Geffen (born February 21, 1943) is an American record executive, film producer, theatrical producer and philanthropist. Geffen is noted for creating Asylum Records in 1970, Geffen Records in 1980, and DGC Records in 1990. Geffen was also one of the three founders of DreamWorks SKG in 1994.
Geffen was born in Brooklyn, New York, to Abraham Geffen and Batya Volovskaya. Both were Jewish immigrants who met in British-mandated Palestine and then moved to Brooklyn.[citation needed] Geffen graduated from New Utrecht High School in Brooklyn, then attended Santa Monica College (then known as Santa Monica City College) in Santa Monica, California, but soon left. He then attended night school at Brooklyn College for three semesters before again dropping out. He also briefly attended the University of Texas at Austin. His mother owned a clothing store, Chic Corsets By Geffen, in Borough Park, Brooklyn. David's older brother Mitchell Geffen was an attorney who attended UCLA Law School and later settled in Encino, California. Mitchell Geffen fathered two daughters, who are David's closest surviving relatives.
Geffen began his entertainment career in the mailroom at the William Morris Agency, where he quickly became an agent. In order to obtain the WMA job, he had to show proof of graduating college. Geffen forged a letter and submitted it to WMA. His colleagues in the mailroom included Elliot Roberts, who later became Geffen's partner in a management company. He left William Morris to become a personal manager and was immediately successful with Laura Nyro and Crosby, Stills and Nash. In the process of looking for a record deal for young Jackson Browne, Ahmet Erteg"un suggested that Geffen start his own record label.
Geffen, with Elliot Roberts founded Asylum Records in 1970, which signed artists such as Jackson Browne, The Eagles, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Linda Ronstadt and J.D. Souther. The label was distributed by Atlantic Records at this time. Asylu
