It all started when he began singing folk tunes in his teens ... the '60's. He became 'known' and very popular in the 1970's, that's when he played or influenced and 'hung around' many well-known bands and/or musicians, such as THE NITTY GRITTY DIRT BAND, THE VELVET UNDERGROUND, THE LOVIN' SPOONFUL, GREGG ALLMAN, JOAN BAEZ, THE BYRDS, LINDA RONSTADT, THE EAGLES, YOKO ONO, QUINCY JONES....WOW.....the list just gos on...and on...
Over the 40 some years Jackson Browne has been active in the music scene, he has been put in THE ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME in 2004. Also, THE SONGWRITERS HALL OF FAME, not sure what year. I love the respected HARRY CHAPIN HUMANTARIAN AWARD he got in 2007. He was also given an honory DOCTORATE OF MUSIC by Occidental College in Los Angeles, Caliornia, for music that honors social justice and peace. This honor was given in 2004 ..... and still the list gos on...there's THE COURAGE OF CONSCIENCE AWARD, and THE JOHN STEINBECK AWARD given to artists who support high social and environmental values. And here's another HARRY CHAPIN AWARD....it's THE 'NARM' HARRY CHAPIN HUMANITARIAN AWARD in 2008
So, JACKSON BROWNE we salute you. Thanks for all the music and always really caring about the world we all live on, and people on it and showing it in your art. Jan
