John Kalodner net worth: John Kalodner is a retired A&R executive who has a net worth of $50 million dollars. Always interested in music and the music scene, John Kalodner started out as a band photographer, then began managing a record store, and finally became a music critic for the Philadelphia Bulletin. In 1974, he began working in the publicity department at Atlantic Records. He quickly exhibited great instincts for talent, and by 1976, he had become Atlantic's West Coast Director. He brought in such acts as Foreigner, Peter Gabriel, and AC/DC. He then became the Head of A&R at the brand new Geffen Records, and continued to sign groups that would become massively successful. Some of the groups who credit him with at least part of their success, include White Zombie, Aerosmith, Cher, Santana, Chicago, Heart, Billy Joel, REO Speedwagon, and the Black Crowes, among many, many others. He retired in 2006.
John David Kalodner is a retired American A&R executive. His achievements included signing Foreigner, AC/DC, Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins to Atlantic Records in the seventies.
He was headhunted as the first A&R executive for David Geffen's new label Geffen Records in 1980, where he worked with White Zombie, Madness, XTC, Whitesnake, Wang Chung, Nelson and Aerosmith. He brought Jimmy Page and Sammy Hagar success as solo artists and was responsible for the musical collaboration Coverdale-Page.
Kalodner also placed songs on soundtracks of such films as Top Gun and Footloose. Kalodner followed Aerosmith to Columbia in the nineties, where he also worked with Cher, Santana, Journey, Manowar, Chicago, Heart, Iron Maiden, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Ted Nugent, REO Speedwagon, Mars Electric and the Black Crowes, among others.
Kalodner's special status was underlined by the fact that he is usually credited on albums for simply being himself. According to Kalodner's web site, the phrase "John Kalodner: John Kalodner" originated with Foreigner's 1978 Double Vision album, when the album's producer, Keith Olsen, was wondering just how to credit Kalodner's involvement with the band and the album. In keeping with the double vision theme, Foreigner guitarist Mick Jones came up with idea of doubling Kalodner's name.
Kalodner worked with Billy Idol, Jack Blades, Roadstar, Steve Perry, Cher, and Suzie McNeil (of Rock Star: INXS) before retiring in 2006.
