Ho-Wo! Ho-Wo! By RITCHIE YORKE Gannett Special Writer la 1959 pop groups wore nice, Innocuous namci - the rangons, the Innoccnli, the Flamlnfoes, the Marvelcttcs, the Pengulnj and the Regents and they made records uhlch were preoccupied with the ecstasies and agonies of first love - "Earth Ansel," "Ooh Baby Baby," "Teen Angel," "TwIlUhtTIme," "My Girl'1 and "Tears on My rUiow." Today's groups are heavy on puna and personification Iron Butterfly, Led Zeppelin, Flaming Embers, Grand Funk Railroad, Blood, Sweat & Tears and Free and do songs notable for their explicit and raw lyrics "Ilonky Tonk Women," "Blistered," "I Got You" and "Light My Fire." Important as thme chined have been, the moat ilgnlfl-rant ilgnlfl-rant ilgnlfl-rant turns of events are on the balance ihrrt. Top has br rome big bunlnns, a IS 111-lion-a-yf 111-lion-a-yf 111-lion-a-yf 111-lion-a-yf 111-lion-a-yf 111-lion-a-yf 111-lion-a-yf ir Industry. The prices promoters pay for top groups these days are between 20 and 30 times greater than they were a decade decade ago. In 1959, you could pick up a group or artist with a No. 1 record for around 1350. Today groups who haven't been within 50 positions of No. 1 can earn $.1,500. Some top acts can earn more than $100,000 for an hour on the concert stage. When It's all reduced to dollars dollars and cents, pop music is the way to provide the Wig-gest, Wig-gest, Wig-gest, fastest dollars in entertainment entertainment history. Recently the Rolling Stones earned $170,000 for two concerts In one eve-rirg eve-rirg eve-rirg at Los Angtles. That was not far short of the all-time all-time all-time record for a one-nightcr-the one-nightcr-the one-nightcr-the one-nightcr-the one-nightcr-the $189,000 handed to the Beatles for their show at New York's Shea Stadium on Aug. 23, WA. ACCORDING TO FRANK Earsalona, one of the top booking agents in the rxk field, at least a dozen pop acts can earn in excess of $12,500 a night, some much more. "The Reatlrs are good for at If art ItW.OOO anywhere, any. time, if yon could get them oa the read," says Rartalnna, wb beads op Premier Talent in New York. He figures that Elvli Presley commands about the same fees, with the Rolling Stonei riding between 150.000 and 1100,000. Tom Jones gets $50,000 a night (and so could Bob Dylan) while Glen Campbell is earning $35,000 each evening. Led Zeppelin, Jim! Hcndrix. Engelbcrt Humperdinck and Barbra Streisand are in the $25,000 to $03,000 category, with Johnny Cash not far behind. behind. Between $12,500 and $25,000 are Blood, Sweat I Tears, Aretha Franklin, Crosby, Stills. Nash and Young, Creedcnce Clearwater Revival, Iron Butterfly, Janis Joplin, Dionne Warwick, the Fifth Dimension and the Who. All of these figures arc guaranteed fees and do not take percentages into account. All concert contracts stipulate that the act receive between 50 and 60 per cent of the gross, if the total receipts are twice as much as the asking price. In other words, if you buy a group for $10,000, with a 60 per cent rider, and ou sell $30,000 worth of tickets, you wind up paying the band $18,000. But, as Barsalona hastily points out, the group is lucky to see 50 per cent after expenses. expenses. TAKE THE RECENT LED Zeppelin concert at O'Kecfe Center in Toronto which wai sold by Barsalona to a New York promoter. The show, which was a sellout, sellout, grossed $31,000 of which Led Zeppelin was given about $18,000. "The group's manager receives 20 per cent," said Barsalona. "Led Zeppelin comes from England, so the band also has an American manager who gets 5 per cent; the American agent receives 10 per cent, and the English agent, who hasn't even picked up a phone, Music r 40 .- h " ' v. MICK JAGGER jt.;V:' . t i .... JIMI HKNDRIX also gets 10 por cent. That's 25 per cent gone already. "Tbrn jou have riprTUr. Le" Zrppolin ha one road manager, two equipment men, plus a lifter-driver. lifter-driver. lifter-driver. Thrir salaries salaries bate to be met, transportation, transportation, hnti'l bills plus lor! taxrs. In thi rase, lhetni.il comes to SI2.IOO. Therefore, Led Zeppelin would receive K.soo. which l still a lot of money for one night's work." Ono of the biggest problems with rock bands, Barsalona noted, is the enormous amount of equipment they carry. Usually they have at least a ton of stuff with them, which is transported by air freight from city to city. "It has become so tough In North America that coast-to-coast coast-to-coast coast-to-coast coast-to-coast coast-to-coast tours are now a thing of the past. We either work the n section at a time and keep East or West coast. You play tho expenses down. When people people hear of the money involved involved in pop these days, they say 'It's fantastic, but really it isn't." BARSALONA ADMITS that the escalation of prices often amazes him, "Before the Realties arrived, the biggest acts in the country were get-ting get-ting get-ting $3,ooo on a really good night. Tony Bennett was lucky to get that much and he was really not. Established record stilus often only got $1,000 on those cross country Dirk Clark tours. "I booled the Beatles on their firit tour here and we asked fur 123.000 and it blew the promoters' mMi. They just couldn't believe It. I in fin, 25 grand! Whew! Rut Ihey paid it and they made money and It's Jutt grown from there." Barsalona feels the ceiling will be reached at the end of next summer, when the sec- sec- ( end year of pop festivals Is j over and artists become more j rational about money. "There will be a lot of festivals festivals next year, because many , promoters have seen how ' much money can be made. I've already heard of plans for Miami. Los A n g e I e s, New York. Atlanta, Texas, Chicago and Detroit . . . "The thing that really gets J me is that although pop has been such big business for years, very few other mediums mediums have been hip to It. Take theater and movies they vl r t u a 11 y ignored pop for years, to their detriment. Then look what happened when they finally woke up theater came up with 'Hair,' which will probably be the most successful musical In history, and motion pictures fielded 'The Graduate,' which is close to the biggest grossing movie. "That 's the whole thing man, pop is just starting to pop. It can only get bigger."
