|Bio and Links|
I am a student of Anthropology and Jazz. I graduated cum laude from UCSC. In my graduate studies, I intend to pursue a PhD in Ethnomusicology. I am deeply interested in the documentation and preservation of music history: particularly of the Jazz, Blues and Rock idioms.|

I hate to tell you this, but your bio of Jobriath is full of errors. Jo did NOT get a $500,000 recording contract - the amount he was supposed to have gotten, as his manager, Jerry Brandt, later admitted.
The Paris Opera show never happened. There was no extravaganza.
Jo was an old friend of mine. I know his story well. You don't have to believe me though. If you see the documentary, "Jobriath AD", it will confirm everything that I've said.
All the best-
Thank you for your remembrance of Job. I was Job's closest friend and companion 1968-1969.
