Jozy shouldn't be alive today. She should've been at Sharon Tate's home on August 8th, 1969, when a terrible murder took place. A migraine headache delayed her plans and she escaped a horrible nightmare inflicted on the national psyche by Charles Manson and his followers. Several years after the killings, Pollock spoke at the California Institute of Women, where she saw Susan Atkins, one of the cultists who took part in the crime. "I had all this rage and emotion and I wanted to get in her face, but the Holy Spirit prevented me," she says. "I recognized I have to forgive."

Then they went on the road with the flamboyant pianist Liberace. After divorcing her husband in 1968, she entered a fast-paced world of elite rock'n'roll musicians and dated a number of famous men. She was engaged to Nigel Olson, the drummer for Elton John as John's career began to enter the stratosphere.
