Jackson Browne (Oct. 9, 1948)
Artistfacts®: You can leave comments about the artist/band at the bottom of the page.
Browne was born in Heidelberg, West Germany.
While still a teen, he played with members of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, which would later play many of his songs.
Others who covered his songs before he even released an album include: Nico, the Byrds, Bonnie Raitt, and Linda Ronstadt.
Browne's first wife Phyllis committed suicide in 1976, 2 years after the birth of their son Ethan.
Browne generally writes about personal matters, but became very sociopolitical in the 1980s. In recent years, he has returned to his old style.
Some of the organizations of which Browne has been a part include: Amnesty International, Musicians United for Safe Energy, and the Christic Institute.
In the early 1990s, his girlfriend Daryl Hannah left him for John Kennedy Jr.
He co-wrote a number of The Eagles' hits, including "Take It Easy
." (thanks, James - Tracy, CA)
Jackson Browne worked as a staff writer for Nina Music when he was eighteen years old. His job was to report on musical events in New York City. Nina Music was the publishing company for Elektra Records, and Jackson Browne was given a professional recording contract while still in his teens.
