Native of Brooklyn. A longtime showbiz executive and mogul, founder (and seller) of Geffen Records and co-founder of DreamWorks; a man who tends to work a decent compromise between art and commerce. Manager, once upon a time, of 70s rock aristocracy: Jackson Browne, Laura Nyro, Joni Mitchell, Crosby, Stills, and Nash, etc. Founded Asylum Records. Married Keanu Reeves (excuse me?). In the years prior to coming out, he and Cher were briefly an item.

Editors Note: 11/28/2012 - The so called marriage between David Geffen and Keanu Reeves is a myth and has been widely discredited.
