I liked Elliot Roberts a lot. He was a kind, thoughtful, and helpful man. So sad to hear of his passing. Love always.

This was a great man. A great manager. A man with soul. A man who cared for his artist’s interests sometimes more than he cared for his own. This is rare. This is my personal experience of him, since he managed me in one of my bands. Rock In Peace, Elliot Roberts. https://t.co/nItrnNwQFV

I am so sad to hear of the passing of Elliot Roberts—one of the nicest kindest & funniest people I have ever met. I knew Elliot through his long time management of @Neilyoung. We had so many good times across the world. May the One who brings Peace bring Peace to all. pic.twitter.com/iQ597Nzvwf
