John Janick Named Interscope Geffen A&M CEO

Posted by: Jason Tate (05/28/14)
John Janick (you may remember him from the Fueled by Ramen days) has been named chairman and CEO of Interscope Geffen A&M.
The announcement was made to coincide with the finally confirmed news that Apple will indeed acquire Beats, the headphones and digital music streaming company Iovine founded with Dr. Dre in 2008. When that transaction closes after the summer, Iovine will join Apple.

When did FBR begin its association with WMG? Wiki doesn't have that info. Trying to work backwards and construct a timeline.

Extensive FBR 15 year retrospective interview from 2011 here, he talks about upstreaming with Island and later"the people who were at Island had left and now were at Warner, so we ended up doing this deal with them."

Janick has several quotes in AP's "Take This Back to Your Grave" story, including some context about FBR and doing Decaydance with Pete.
