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!!
