TAKE NOTE, BEETHOVEN CICCONE CHUCKLES

9-' N THE ROAD
imply Red will begin a world tour ear-
ly in 19857 to support theur second LP
Quiet Riot, currently on tour in
the States, will soon head for Canada,
Japan and Latin markets ... Julian Lennon
has shelved plans for any more touring over the
next year after disappointing sales of his last al-
bum ... Simple Minds wonst be on tour again
until 1988, says leader Jim Kerr ... Genesis,
who are currently on the first leg of their world
tour, will probably return to the U.S. sometime
after June ... General Public will be wrapping
up their North American tour by .January ...

Ozzy Osbourne, who collapsed from ''exhaus-
tio" in.Septerber, says he won't be touring for
at least another two years . .. Malice, who
used Ozzy's producer, Max Norman, on their lat-
est, License to Kill, is currently on tour through-
out the U.S.... No dates yet, but Boston will
definitely go on the road in support of their new
album, ThirdStage. Samy Hagar's former guitar-
ist, Gary Phil, will be in the band, even though he
doesn't play on the new album. *
Julian Lennon is going back to the drawing
board after less-than-spectacular sales of
his last album.

EDDIE'S REVENGE
A sequel to Eddie and the Cruisers, which rock-
eted John Cafferty to popularity, is in the mak-
ing. The film will continue the story of lead singer
Eddie, who disappears from the band at the
height of his fame.
MONKEE BUSINESS
The company that's bringing The New Monkees
to television next year has announced plans for
another musical sitcom. To be called Rock Can-
dy, this one has a story line so saccharine that it
crystallizes the brain upon viewing. Audrey and
Jane Landers play twins who are temps by day
and leaders of a band, called Rock Candy and the
Jawbreakers, by night. Dick Van Patten plays
Daddy, a retired musician who runs a music-
school out of his garage (for garage bands, no
doubt). Unmercifully, the show calls for at least
one song to be performed per segment. Tina
Louise, of Gilligan's sland'fame, portrays Van
Patten's ex- (and who would blame her!) wife.
MONKEE SEE, MONKEE DO
And speaking of the Monkees, they recently
met with ABC-TV and Columbia Pictures execs
to discuss doing a movie of the week updating
the adventures of the group. Michael Nesmith
remains the missing link. He has not rejoined the
group and is busy producing his own films with
his company, Pacific Arts Productions.

Chuck Berry will star in a movie highlighting his
three-decade career. To be directed by Taylor
Hackford (White Nights), Hail, Hail, Rock and
Rollwill feature footage from Berry's recent St.
Louis concert. In fact, two-thirds of the flm wll
be footage from various Berry concerts, with the
rest comprised of interviews with his associates
through the years. Keith Richards and Robbie
Robertson are serving as consultants on the
project, scheduled for a spring 1987 theatrical
and video release.
PIPE DREAMS
Lorimar, which recently purchased the MGM lot,
is planning to make a film of California Dreamin',
the book that Michelle Phillips wrote about the
Mamas and the Papas. The former Mama
wants her daughter, Chyna, playing her part and
Carney Wilson, the daughter of Beach Boy Brian
Wilson, playing the part of the late Mama Cass
Elliot. Michelle is currently on TV's Hotel in the
role of the concierge. (Tell me anyone would
have believed this 20 years ago.) Chyna (Does
she know Grace Slick's daughter?) makes her
screen debut in John Hughes' next film, Some
Kind of Wonderful
LONDON CALLING
Michael Des Barres, late of Power Station
fame, will be seen in his first starring role in a
feature film, Nghtflyers, due in early 1987. He
plays a telepath on a mission to communicate
with aliens. Lisa Blount, of An Officertand a Gen-
tleman, and Dynasty's Michael Praed co-star.
HE-E-E-RE'S FRANK!
Frank Zappa has got a great idea for a talk
show, which he will host,of course. To be called
Night School, the show would allow the host to
combat what he calls "pseudo-religious pro-
gramming and politics espoused by fundamen-
talists and other snake oil salesmen." The show
would also include comedy skits and music, as
well as the perfunctory interviews. Daniel Schorr
would discuss the news and Zappa would occa-
sionally treat the audiences to one of his lectures
on philosophy. Now, all he needs is an offer.

Madonna's next movie, Slammer, is described
as a "contemporary screwball romantic come-
dy," as opposed to Shanghai Surprise, which
was a period screwball romantic comedy. Let's
hope times are a-changin' for the better.
RENT-A-STONE
The recently released Mick Jagger film, Run-
ning Out ofLuck, was the first full-length motion
picture to be released directlyon video, by-pass-
ing completely the theatrical circuit.
POLICE BRUTALITY
In his next movie, Sting will play a white South
African doctor imprisoned and tortured for work-
ing in black hospitals. It is based on the true story
of the first white man to die in South African
police custody.

The Survivor song, Eye of the Tiger," which
was the theme for Rocky //l, has itself inspired a
movie. The Scotti Brothers label, which originally
released the song, has gotten into the movie biz
and has announced that one ofits first eight fea-
ture films will be based on the lyrics of "Tiger."
The movie, about a war hero who returns to his
home town only to find it overrun by a paramli-
tary drug ring (I kid you not), will star Gary Busey
and was shot, appropriately, in Los Angeles.
