THE SCOOP: In a “Rolling Stone” story written by Apple co-founder Steve Jobs’ first serious girlfriend, Chrisann Brennan, that hits newsstands Friday, Brennan recounts her adventures with a then-teenage Jobs during the summer of 1972. Jobs died Oct. 5 at 56 after struggling for years with pancreatic cancer.

THE DETAILS: Brennan, who lived in a Cupertino cabin with Jobs during that summer, writes that he was romantic at the time and liked to re-write Bob Dylan songs.

EARLY EMPLOYMENT: Brennan also writes about how she, Jobs, a roommate named Al and Steve Wozniak (who later co-founded Apple with Jobs) got jobs at a local mall playing “Alice in Wonderland” characters. Brennan was Alice, while the guys took turns playing the Mad Hatter and White Rabbit.
