LISTEN: This ’70s hit from the pioneering gay rockstar you’ve probably never heard of

Smack dab between Bowie and Mercury rose a queer rockstar with a fraction of the audience and all of the star quality. Bruce Wayne Campbell, known to the stage as Jobriath, always had stardom in his eyes.Whether it was dropping out of college, going AWOL on his military draft, or leaving the legendary Aquarius Theater production of Hair (a lead role from which he was reportedly fired for “upstaging” the other girls), Jobriath’s sights seemed to perpetually turn back towards his own future spotlight.It wasn’t until he was plucked from semi-obscurity by Carly Simon’s old manager Jerry Brandt in the early ’70s that Jobriath’s would find his first true solo hype.
