Jeff Jampol grew up in Los Angeles, “a short, fat, nonathletic Jewish loner kid” until he fell in love with David Bowie’s music one day in 1972 during the Ziggy Stardust tour. “There were 1,900 other weirdos there exactly like me,” and at the age of 13, it was “the first time in my life I felt like I wasn’t alone.”

The New York Times‘ latest profile on Jampol focuses on his company Jampol Artist Management, which specializes in the trade of legacy acts (essentially belongings of deceased artists). Jampol has a roster of clients that includes the Doors, Janis Joplin, the Ramones, Otis Redding and more, and with six full-time employees, he hasn’t pursued a new client in 12 years. Jampol is currently working on a tour exhibit showcasing rare art by late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain in partnership with Courtney Love and Frances Bean Cobain. “Nirvana: Taking Punk to the Masses” is an authorized traveling art exhibition that will be the largest collection of the band’s legacy featuring over 200 items and “amazing canvases that a lot of the world has never seen.”
