最初の仕事は何だった?
忌野キョシロウの通訳。

I know the question, more or less. I just can't figure out the answer.

Thanks.

Kyoshiro (清志郎) is probably the last name of this musician they did translation work for.

The names of actors, singers and other talent types are often given in katakana.

I think you don't wander why it was in katakana.
I guess the writer may forgot his name in Kanji or someting. 🙂

Imawano Kiyoshiro is a Japanese musician.
He used to be a leader of a band named "RC SUCCESSION".
His name is 忌野清志郎 in Kanji.
