As the strength of the Concord Bicycle Music publishing operation has grown so exceptionally in recent weeks, we are humbled by sad news of the passing of David Rosner, the founder of The Bicycle Music Company.
It is not an exaggeration to say that all of ours lives, careers and interactions may have been quite different were it not for David, whose business was the basis for what we have accomplished together.
Published in the Los Angeles Times on June 16, 2017:
November 27, 1938 – June 13, 2017 David was a well-respected music publisher who, prior to starting The Bicycle Music Company in 1974, worked at both April/Blackwood and Dick James Music. David played an active role in the early career of Elton John and worked with Neil Diamond for over three decades, in addition to many other songwriters/recording artists. David is survived by his wife, Margo Guryan Rosner; his son, Jonathan Rosner; daughter-in-law, Amy Rosner; and granddaughters, Rachel and Lauren Rosner. He is sorely missed by his family and friends.
