Aerosmith, Mahogany Rush,
Madmen rock out at Crisler

For all of you died-in-the-wool rock and roll
tans who missed Friday nigh+'s Aerosmith (and
Friends) concert in Crisler Arena, you ought to
kick yourself in the pants and promise yourself
that you'll see them the next time they come
Aerosmith and Friends, Madmen and Mahog-
any Rush, all put on an amazing show that will
long be remembered by those who witnessed
It. And rightly so-Aerosmith recorded their
hit song, "Train Kept A Rollin'," live for their
next album. Not only that but they performed
for nearly two hours putting everything they
had into -the 'show. It was total, uncompromis-
ing energy.
Madmen were the first to perform to the near
sellout crowd. As their title suggests, they were
indeed a group of five crazed musicians that
played eardrum shattering music. They played
a host of obscure tunes, all of which had
healthy doses of guitar.
Mahogany Rush consisted of only three people
that played a superb blend of rock and elec-
trified blues. Throughout their set it was evi-
dent that the late Jimi Hendrix was their major
influence. They played such favorites as "Red
House," "Johnny B. Goode," "Star Spangled
Banner" and Clapton's "Crossroads" to the
crowd's delight.
Frank Marino, the guitarist for Mahogany
Rush, is, without a doubt, the closest person
yet to imitate Hendrix. Everything from the
tone quality of his guitar to his playing style

indicates that Marino is an ardent admirer of
the famous guitarist. He even went so far as
to play his guitar with his teeth, without miss-
ing a note. If one had closed his her eyes dur-
ing Rush's set, they would have thought it was
none other than Jimi himself on the stage,
Aerosmith is symonomous with rock and roll.
They play the kind of music that comes at you
like a Mack truck, and keeps on going once it
runs you over. But they make no pretentious
whatsoever. The five members enjoy what they
do and consequently have acquired a select
audience who also enjoy what they do.
Aerosmith began by playing several cuts
from their first album, Aerosmith. "Walkin' the
Dog" and "Dream On" were especially well
done. Steve Tyler's vocals were right in tune,
not only on these cuts, but also throughout the
After a short break in the action, the band
announced that they were going to record a
song to go on their next album. They also
dedicated it to the University and wished them
lick in The Game. Turned out the song was
their smash it, "Train Kept A Rollin'." The
ushers could do nothing as the crowd rushed
the stage to try and touch the made-up Steve
Tyler. Unfortunately, the roadies got a bit
rough with the fans.
The band returned for three encores to the
sheer delight of the audience. Despite the in-
tense volume of the music throughout the con-
cert that left most people half deaf after-
wards, a good portion of the crrowd left more
than satisfied.

RINGO AND HIS PALS have a new album out: Ringo Starr,
Goodnight Vienna (Apple SW 3417), and it's a winner. With
the likes of John Lennon, Billy
Preston, Robbie Robertson, and
Harry Nilsson, to name just a
few, along side of the best pro-
ducer in popular music, Rich-
ard Perry, Ringo could not do, .,
and did not do, wrong.
Once again a finely orches-
trated effort, complete with
solid rhythm s e c t i o n and
d-eamy piano, guitar, strings,
and horns, weaves the sort of
nostalgia-laced magic Ringo has
made his musical trademark
since parting from the Fab
As if to reassure us he can
still boogie with the best, he
belts out some full-bodied rock
and roll numbers -- "Occapel-
la" (written by Allen Tous- Ringo Starr
saint) and "Snookeroo" (penned by friends Elton John and
Bernie Taupin).
Sentimental crooning reigns supreme on "Husbands and
Wives" (remember Roger Miller?) and "Only You (And You
Alone)" (by Harry Nilsson). Ringo gives his devotees some-
thing to dance to with this album - either cheek-to-cheek or on
the table.
-Bob Taub
Since Cream broke up, Jack Bruce has been laying relatively
low with two solos and a stint with West, Bruce, and Laing.
Finally he has released a third solo, Out of the Storm (RSO SO
4805). As usual, it is an album worth waiting for.
Bruce wrote most of the material for Cream, constantly
showing a fertile and imaginative musical mind. He went even
further on his first two solors; on the third, he continues to
innovate while recalling the days of Cream as well.
Bruce's music is one of disjunction. He puts riffs, chords, and
tempos together in ways no other musician would dream of. And
the risks that Bruce takes almost always turn out for the best.

LONDON (Reuter) - Actor
Richard Burton's description of
British wartime leader Sir Win-
ston Churchill as a killer and a
coward today brought quick re-
joinders from Sir Winston's
grandson and several members
of Parliament.
Burton, who portrays the late
prime minister ina television
dramatization of his war mem-
oirs, compared the British lead-
er to Hitler, Stalin and Attila
the Hun in an article published
by the New York Times yester-
"I realize afresh that I hate
Churchill and all his kind,"
Burton wrote. "I hate them
Asked to comment, Churchill's
grandson and namesake, Mr.
Winston Churchill, said:
"You better had consult Rich-
ard Burton. When I had lunch
with him shortly before the
election, he was full of his role
of Churchill and saying how
much he admired Churchill. He
almost thought he was Church-
He did not think that the opin-
ion expressed in the article was
Burton's true opinion, Mr. Chur-
chill said.
Neville Trotter, a Conserva-
tive member of Parliament, de-
nounced the article as "abso-
lutely disgraceful" and added:
"I don't think Mr. Burton is
a good advertisement for Bri-
tain. His personal conduct
leaves a great deal to be de-
sired. What a pity we haven't

better country."
Another Conservative Parlia-
mentarian, Norman Tebbit,
said: "One should really regard
this in the light of an actor
past his best indulging in a fit
of pique, jealously and ignor-
ant comment. Possibly his ma-
trimonial troubles have got him
confused about life at large."
In New York, the producer of
the program, Jack Le Vien, to-
day said that Burton's denuncia-
tion of Sir Winston must have
been an "abberation."
"We completely dissociate
ourselves with what Richard
Burton said in the Times," Le
Vien said in a telephoned state-

ment. "And while Richard is a
good friend of mine, I violently
disagree with him."
"It's true that Churchill does
stir up excessive emotions, both
for and against. It's really im-
possible to be dispassionate
about him.
'But what I do know is that
in all (of my discussions with
Richard Burton, his feelings
about Sir Winston were just
about the opposite of what he
said in the Times."
Le Vien, whose production
will be televised on Friday in
the United States and next
Sunday on the British Broad-
casting Corporation (BBC) to

"Keep It Down" is typical of the best of Cream; "Timeslip" more people like Churchill at
ends the album with an extended jam a la Cream. There are also the moment - if there were
typical gems like "Into the Storm" and "Pieces of Mind." more Churchills and fewer Bur-
Jack Bruce is an amazing musician. His music is difficult tons, we would be a very much

to approach, but certainly well-worth the effort.

Jerome Robbins and Leonard Bernstein collaborated on West
Side Story and the ballet Fancy Free with stellar results. Now,
after a 16-year hiatus, they have produced Dybbuk, a ballet
based on Central-European Jewish folklore with music in three
Dybbuk is a tale steeped in numerology and mysticism-a
Romeo and Juliet story in which Romeo (or Chanon) dies and
possesses the body of Leah, his love, whose hand has been pro-
mised to a wealthy man.
The music reflects the shadowy story of the ballet-Bernstein
employed' an esoteric numerological system in choosing the
-pitches related to the Hebrew Kabbalah. The score borrows
sounds from all cultures: a harp played like a sitar, clarinets
sounding like central European singers.
The composer conducts the New York City Ballet Orchestra
with soloists David Johnson, baritone and John Ostendorf, bass,
in a good performance of an extremely mysterious score.
