Biography:

Born in Brooklyn and raised on Long Island, producer Aaron Russo has been a driving force in the music business, where Aaron helped create the careers of many legendary performers, such as Led Zeppelin and promoted some of the 60's most successful rock acts, including The Who, Janis Joplin, The Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane. When Russo turned to producing feature films, his production of "The Rose," introduced Bette Midler to motion picture audiences. Midler received an Academy Award nomination as best actress. "The Rose" is considered by many to be the classic rock n' roll film. Russo also produced "Trading Places," starring Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd. Over the past years, Russo has received numerous awards for his achievements.

In January of 2004, he declared his candidacy for the Libertarian Party's nomination for President of the Untied States. At the Convention in May, Russo won the first two ballots, but not a majority. He was defeated on the third and final ballot. He then channeled his energy into writing/directing the film "America: From Freedom to Fascism."
