Tom Jans: Tom Jans

uncredited writer, A&M Records, October 1974

TOM JANS is a native Californian with a life-long love for music and language. He crammed his adolescence full of books, sports, and music, playing in a rock & roll band called the Breakers when he wasn't wearing football gear. At the University of California, Jans was an English major; he developed a fondness for both Byron and Dylan on his way to winning a Phi Beta Kappa key.
