|Noted as one of Morrissey's favorite artists,
Jobriath had a remarkably brief career, comprised of 2 albums and
a few singles in the early 70's. It's rumored that Jobriath died
10 years ago, it's also rumored that he may still be alive.
Short profile by: Seiji
Toyota aka Tigerlily:
In 1973, a singer
suddenly made an appearance on the music scene, came into vogue
with the help of hype, and tragically disappeared while no one
had realized it.
He wasn't even a star, he was like a meteor:
he came and went in a very short time.
His name is JOBRIATH!!
