Motown's L.A. move
to end era in Detroit

UAC-DAYSTAR
Rod Stewart concert: Who
takes the students' money?

DETROIT (R)-Motown Rec-
ord Corp. is moving on to Los
Angeles, leaving Detroit-the
home for more than a decade of
distinctive "Motown Sound."
Amos Wilder, the company's
new vice president and general
manager, said the decision to
phase out Motown's Detroit op-
erations immediately is "simply
a matter of sound business judg-
ment, economics and logistics."
Wilder said the creative cen-
ter of the entertainment world
is on the West Coast and most
major record companies have
moved there for that reason.
He also said the firm's ex-
pansion into motion pictures
and creation of a new record
label, Mowest, "make it man-
datory for us to make the move
at this time."
Wilder said Motown cannot
economically maintain its full
staff in Detroit while creating a
major operation in Los Angeles.
He explained that keeping two
operations going would mean
duplicating many functions,
But Wilder said Motown will
retain iDetroit recording stu-
dios and creative staff,

sure Motown's economic health,"
Wilder said in announcing the
shift of headquarters.
Motown, formed in Detroit,
gained fame in the 1960s with
many recording stars including
Diana Ross and the Supremes,
Marvin Gaye, Martha and the
Vandellas, the Four Tops, the
Temptations and Stevie Wonder.

Holding a'rock concert is never
an easy task. One of the major
headaches is working out the
money angle.
How much will the guarantee
be? What percentage over the
guarantee will the star get? How
much for the agent? All are
factors in determining the price
of your ticket.
Rod Stewart and the Faces will
be playing at a July 5 concert
with Badfinger at Crisler Arena
presented by UAC-Daystar. The
Faces will get a, guaranteed
$25,000 and Badfinger will get a
flat $5,000, according to Frank
Begun, coordinating vice presi-
dent of the University Activities
Center (UAC).
If all 14,000 seats in the arena
are sold for $5 the concert would
gross $70,000. Subtracting $30,000
Kazin to teach
U' courses
Alfred Kazin, noted American
writer and literary critic, will
be teaching two courses in the
English department during the
summer half term.
He will teach English 471,
American Authors 1914 to Pres-
ent and English 837, a graduate
course in literary criticism.
Kazin has taught at a number
of colleges and universities in-
cluding Amherst College, Univer-
sity of California at Berkeley,
and State University of New
York at Stony Brook,
Kazin is best known for his
"On Native Ground: An Inter-
pretation of Modern Prose Liter-
ature," a critical look at Ameri-
can authors.
In his autobiographical work,
"Starting Out in the Thirties,"
Kazm described himself as "a
literary radical. It was the
rebels of literature, the poets of
unlimited freedom, whom I
read."

for the bands and $7,000 for ad-
vertising and expenses leaves
$33,000 net profit.
Bob Bageris, a big Detroit
promoter would get $26,000, 80
per cent of the profits, according
to Begun. Bageris owns the re-
gional performing rights to the
bands and is acting as their
agent. UAC-Daystar would get
20 per cent-$6,000.
The Faces' contract calls for
them to get either a $25,000
guarantee or 60 per cent of the
gross sales-whichever is larger.
So, if the concert sells out Ba-
geris would have to pay the
Faces $17,000 out of his profits
to raise their total fee to $42,000.
This would leave Bageris with
$9,400 for acting as agent.

But, there may not be enough
people around who will pay the
uniform ticket price of $5, even
for seats behind the stage.
All of the parties involved will
of course make less money if
they cannot sell all the tickets.
"If we only can sel 8,000
tickets UAC-Daystar will be
happy," said Begun yesterday.
"That number of tickets sold
will cover all expenses and we
will make a little profit. Since
tickets go on sale in Ann Arbor
two days before they do in De-
troit the people here can get
good seats for $5," Begun added.
Selling 8,000 tickets would
leave $3,000 as profit. In that
case, $2,400 goes to Bageris and
$600 would go to UAC-Daystar.
