Elliot Roberts, one of the most respected and liked managers of the rock era, has died at age 76.

Elliot Roberts had managed Neil Young since 1976. He was also Joni Mitchell’s manager until 1985.

Elliot started in the music business working at the William Morris Agency. He met young, unknown associate David Geffen at the company. Geffen left to manage Crosby, Still & Nash. Roberts managed Neil Young. The two formed The Geffen-Roberts Company with Joni as their first client.

Roberts and Geffen were the founders of Asylum Records. They started the label as a home for Geffen’s then client Jackson Browne, as no-one else would sign him. The label became one of the most successful record labels of the 70s with a roster including Linda Ronstadt, Eagles, Tom Waits, Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne and Bob Dylan.

Elliot Roberts also started The Roxy on Sunset where he placed Neil Young into residency. Young released ‘Tonight’s The Night Live’ from 1973 as part of his archive series in 2018.

Elliot also worked as a Producer on all of Neil Young’s concert movies under his real name Elliot Rabinowitz.

Elliot Roberts cause of death is yet to be revealed.
