Must See Documentary – “Jobriath A.D.”

Jobriath AD

On July 28, 2012 as part of the Newfest Film Festival, “Jobriath A.D.” made its official New York premiere.  For all fans of music, and especially for fans of Glam Rock, this is a documentary that is not to be missed.  The story of singer Jobriath might just be one of the greatest rock and roll mysteries of all time.

Towards the end of the 1960s, the musically gifted and extremely flamboyant singer Jobriath Salisbury made a splash in the music world starring in a stage production of  “Hair.”  This lead to getting ‘discovered’ by uber-producer Jerry Brandt.  With an unprecedented amount of publicity, Jobriath was destined to become rock and roll’s next superstar.  He certainly had the talent, he certainly had the look and he certainly had the promotion.  Even though the world accepted the androgyny of David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust persona, the world was obviously not ready for an openly gay and in-your-face singer.  As a result, Jobriath’s career tanked.

Jobriath was reduced to playing piano bars and prostitution to make ends meet until his premature death at age 36 from AIDS.  Without Jobriath there would be no Lady Gaga.  Without Jobriath, there would be no Morrissey.  With amazing archival footage and interviews with many of Jobriath’s associates and influences, “Jobriath A.D.” remembers the life and times of an extremely talented singer who has tragically been forgotten by the world.

After the screening, “Jobriath A.D.” film maker Kieran Turner took questions from the audience.  One of the burning questions was “why isn’t there any interview footage of Morrissey?”  For those who do not know, Morrissey bought the rights to Jobriath’s catalog and because of Moz, his music is available to be heard once again.  Unfortunately, Morrissey refused to be interviewed despite many requests.  “Jobriath A.D.” has been receiving positive reviews from festivals across the globe and finally in 2012, Jobriath is getting his long overdue moment in the sun.
