Gallin was born in May 27, 1940 in New York, the son of middle class Jewish parents.
Gallin graduated from Boston University in 1962.
Gallin joined the mailroom of General Artists Corporation and eventually becoming a senior vice president and board member. After less than a year at GAC, he became a junior agent. During this time he played a role in booking The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show.
In 1970 he left GAC and partnered with his cousin, Raymond Katz, to create the personal management company Katz Gallin, which lasted 14 years. He then went on to manage the careers of Cher, Dolly Parton, Michael Jackson, Neil Diamond, Barbra Streisand, Mariah Carey, and Whoopi Goldberg.
Gallin produced over 20 movies as well as Broadway plays, and was the CEO of Mirage Entertainment and Sports. He was a close associate of Steve Wynn, Barry Diller, David Geffen, Diane Von Furstenberg, and Calvin Klein.
His 70th birthday party was thrown at Donna Karan's West Village studio and was attended by Patti LaBelle, Barbra Streisand, Joan Rivers, Bette Midler, Vera Wang, Renée Zellweger, Richard Gere, Sandra Bernhard, Les Moonves, and Ron Perelman.
Sexual harassment issues
In 1997, Gallin was sued by two former employees alleging sexual harassment. The lawsuit alleged Gallin asked them to coordinate sexual visits with young men, as well as to offer their sexual services to potential clients to secure relationships. Gallin responded with a countersuit alleging his former employees had breached their contractual obligations with his firm and produced the sexual harassment allegations by way of distraction from their violations.
Gallin was openly gay. On February 11, 2011, Gallin married Bryan Fox, an artist and actor.
Gallin first battled cancer in 1988. On April 21, 2017, Gallin died following a long battle with multiple myeloma. He was 76.
