Landau, Jon

Jon Landau (born May 14, 1947) is an American music critic, manager and record producer, most known for his association in all three capacities with Bruce Springsteen. Landau grew up in the Boston suburbs and earned a degree in History from Brandeis University with honors. Aligning himself with the growing underground culture of late-'60s Boston, Jon Landau carved out a niche for himself while writing for the music magazine Crawdaddy. A failed performer yet a passionate, devoted fan, Landau championed the straightforward rock & roll that he loved, and wrote scathing reviews of what he saw as the overblown, pretentious San Francisco scene.
