David Geffen birthday party draws Oprah, Paul McCartney, Elton John

David Geffen proved his spot atop the food chain over the weekend with a star-studded birthday bash that drew out an A-list crowd of industry icons and emerging young stars.

The media mogul, who made his billions by launching three record labels and Dreamworks in the span of just 25 years, celebrated his big day in style at the home of fellow music man Jimmy Iovine.

And to mark his 75th birthday he surrounded himself with some of the biggest names in the industry, from Oprah Winfrey and Paul McCartney to Bruce Springsteen and Diane Sawyer.

He even managed to snag one of the most elusive stars of all, as his longtime friend Joni Mitchell was also among those in attendance.

The event was emceed by Tom Hanks, whose wife Rita Wilson was one of the many performers to take the stage over the course of the evening.

She was joined by a line-up that put this year's Grammy Awards to shame, as Elton John, Jennifer Hudson, Jonathan Groff and McCartney himself also took some time to perform for guests. 

Not in attendance it seems were his ex Cher and Carly Simon, who is rumored to have written her hit song You're So Vain about Geffen. 

The event was held in a tent that was erected in the backyard of Iovine's $60 million Malibu home.

Geffen posted back in September that Iovine 'throws the best parties in LA' alongside a photo from his model wife Liberty Ross' birthday bash.

That picture featured Geffen, Oprah, Gayle King, Hanks and Wilson, who were all back in action over the weekend.

Geffen is also known to host quite the birthday bash himself, with Wilson ringing in her birthday back in 2016 aboard his $200 million yacht Rising Sun.

That boat has hosted a number of guests who were in attendance on Saturday, particularly Geffen's crowd of younger pals.

Dasha Zhukova and her frequent party companion Stavros Niarchos, Wendi Deng and Princess Beatrice have all been seen on the yacht in the past year.

Zhukova in particular has grown incredibly close with Geffen as have supermodel Karlie Kloss and her venture capitalize boyfriend Joshua Kushner, who attended the party on Saturday while 3,000 miles away in DC his brother was being stripped of his security clearances at the White House.
