alk about your soul
music.
Avraham
Rosenblum rocks his listener
with a bio that reads like a
Chasidic version of Hair.
Onetime flower child of the
'60s blooms into rabbi and
rock star.
But don't expect to see
Rosenblum fronting for a new
Jefferson Airplane. His soul
soars instead at the mere
mention of Jewish music.
And right now he is flying
solo. The former
Philadelphian who once
played such an integral part
in the Diaspora Yeshiva Band
has graduated to a one-man
show. And this is one man
who hasn't turned his back on
his heritage
Rosenblum's newest album
is "V'Hoshienu."
There is a sense of humor
that permeates our conversa-
tion and even the album
cover, which warns "Please
do not violate Halachah
or federal law by illegal-
ly copying this cassette;'
which is distributed by
Honorable Mentshen Music
Publications.
Before he departs for his
home, Israel, he talks of his
new work.
" `V'Hoshienu' is a bit of a
departure for me," says
Rosenblum, who sees the
album as more mainstream
than previous efforts. "Not
my usual Chasidic rock 'n roll
style"
Not that it will have his
rock fans reeling. Indeed, at
least two rock mavens will
adore it. "My two older boys
— 14 and 11 — wrote the
melody for `Ki Lo Yitosh; "
the opening number, says a
proud papa. He is shepping
nachas from rockin'. "Like
every father who feels he has
something positive to con-
tribute, I'm happy," says
Rosenblum, with a smile.
After all, his children aren't
writing melodies that will
lure strange cults. Naturally,
they're more Bright Shabbat
than Black Sabbath. "Since
they're religious kids, they
are familiar with the soulful
qualities of the Jewish peo-
ple:' says Rosenblum, well
familiar himself with such
soul music.
"They see things clearly.
They know I'm different than
many other fathers. I've never
hidden my past." Life didn't
pass Rosenblum by in the

'60s. That past — the "hippie"
past, as he calls it — was in
tune with the times. "It was
a hippie past with all that ap-
plies — without getting too
specific; says Rosenblum.
Those were the days . . . but
those were the days, long
gone. Today's Jewish music is
music to Rosenblum's ears.
"Tashmieni" was a family
affair, bearing a joint
Rosenblum signature. "The
song is about a man's wanting
to get himself back into the
position he was in before he
led himself astray," says
Rosenblum.
Rosenblum has more than a
nodding acquaintance with
success. As a member of the
Diaspora Yeshiva Band, he
toured extensively, including
stints in hometown
Philadelphia. "That was a
wonderful time as long as it
lasted," he recalled.
But Rosenblum wanted
more. Rockin' solo archives
that wish. "I wanted to catch
my children's ear."

Former stage actor Stubby Kaye has
film.

The man performs without
a net; he has caught their at-
tention with some unor-
thodox work. Rosenblum was
featured in a recent MTV
video of Bob Dylan and Tom
Petty and the Heartbreakers
touring Israel. Rosenblum is
shown performing on the
video and showing Petty and
former "Byrd" Roger
McGuinn around his
homeland.
Rosenblum is entertain-
ment director of the Ramada
Renaissance Hotel in
Jerusalem, where he also per-
forms, and has just finished a
home video special for noted
singer Rabbi Shlomo
Carlebach. There is also The
Mitzvah Machine,
a
"12-minute animation with a
punk rock soundtrack that I
did:'

So, the rebbe of rock 'n roll
rages on. Has time brought
any changes? "No:' he says,
without missing a beat, "I'm
still rockin' it!"

Kaye Makes A Killing
In 'Roger Rabbit' Film

MICHAEL ELKIN

Special to The Jewish News

E

yen at 70, Stubby
Kaye is still rocking
the boat. "Well, actual-
ly now I'm rocking the war-
ren," says Kaye, star of Who
Framed Roger Rabbit, as he
erupts in laughter.
He has much to chuckle
about these days. Well-known
as the roly-poly, dice rolling
Nicely-Nicely of Guys and
Dolls, Kaye is doing nicely-

nicely in his Rabbit run as
Marvin Acme, gag maven.
It is a part that other actors
— given the film's megasuc-
cess — would die for. And
Kaye did.
"I'm the one they're fram-
ing Roger over," he says. "I get
killed in the film, and
everyone thinks the rabbit
did it."
It's not the first time Kaye
has made a killing in the
business. In addition to being
one of the good guys of Guys
and Dolls, he was Marryin'
