Jackson Browne Caricature. Relaxing pre-concert in the green room, Amsterdam, North Holland December 9, 1976, age 27, RAI Exhibition and Convention Centre.
Browne is an American singer-songwriter, and musician who has sold over 18 million albums in the United States. Coming to prominence in the 1970s, Browne has written and recorded songs such as “These Days”, “The Pretender”, “Running on Empty”, “Lawyers in Love”, “Doctor My Eyes”, “Take It Easy”, “For a Rocker”, and “Somebody’s Baby”.
In his teens he began singing folk songs in local venues such as the Ash Grove and The Troubador Club. He attended Sunny Hills High School in Fullerton, California, graduating in 1966.
After graduating in 1966, Browne joined the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and after leaving, decided to go solo after signing with David Geffen’s Asylum Records.
His albums, “Jackson Browne” (’72), “For Everyman” (’73) and “Late For The Sky” (’74) gained him critical success. The upbeat “Take It Easy”, cowritten with Eagles’ Glenn Frey, had already been a major success for that group, while his own recording of “These Days” reflected a sound representing Browne’s angst.
Browne’s character was even more apparent in his next album, “The Pretender”. It was released during 1976, after the suicide of his first wife, Phyllis Major. The album features production by Jon Landau and a mixture of styles, ranging from the mariachi-inspired “Linda Paloma” to the country-driven “Your Bright Baby Blues” and the downbeat “Sleep’s Dark and Silent Gate”. “Here Come Those Tears Again”, cowritten with Nancy Farnsworth, the mother of Phyllis Major, after the untimely death of Major, peaked at #23 on the Hot 100 one year to the week after that death.
During this period, Browne began his fractious but lifelong professional relationship with singer-songwriter Warren Zevon, mentoring Zevon’s first two Asylum albums through the studio as a producer (working closely with Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderón).
Running on Empty (1977), recorded entirely on tour, became his biggest commercial success.
In 2004, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio, by Bruce Springsteen.
Browne continues to perform today at age 69.
