Happy birthday to record/movie executive and philanthropist David Geffen.  The labels David Geffen has been associated with have released albums by Olivia Newton-John, Bob Dylan, Nirvana, Elton John, Cher, Aerosmith, Peter Gabriel, Guns N’ Roses and Neil Young, just to name a few.  He’s raised millions of dollars for great charities, has an amazing art collection (including paintings by Jasper Johns and William DeKooning which he sold for a reported $143 million!), and is a very nice guy!  If only some of these celebrities that are worth a fraction of David Geffen’s net worth could be so nice…

Also born on this day:  actress Rue McClanahan, singer Nina Simone and writer Anais Nin.
