NEW YORK (AP) — The manager of Neil Young, Joni Mitchell and many other rock stars has died. Elliot Roberts was 76.
His agency Lookout Management says in a statement that Roberts died Friday. No other details were available.
Young is known for his many clashes with record industry officials but said in a statement on his website that Roberts was “the greatest manager of all time.”
Roberts was a college dropout who befriended David Geffen and with him helped launch the California rock scene of the 1960s and 1970s.
Besides representing such top acts as Young; Mitchell; and Crosby, Stills and Nash, Elliot helped found Asylum Records, where performers included Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt and the Eagles.
