Michael Jackson may spark a revolution On the Road is a selection of musical events within driving distance of New Brunswick Please check for times and ticket availability. If he hadn't been cremated, I suspect John Lennon would be spinning 33 'A revolutions-per-min-ute in his grave if he could see what Michael Jackson has done with his classic rock 'n roll anthem, "Revolution." Jackson, you may recall, outbid both Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono, and former Beatle Paul McCartney for control over Northern Songs, which includes those penned by the Lennon-McCartney songwritingteam. The exploitation of rock 'n roll for advertising purposes has been all around us for at least two years now, and anyone who reads this -' column knows it's a pet peeve of . . mine. It's funny, but I don't think Lennon would be bothered at all to know that former Beatle Ringo Starr is starring in all those tasteless California wine cooler commercials. At least no Beatles music is involved. "After all," Lennon himself might say, 'It's Only Ringo." But what Michael Jackson has done with "Revolution" is enough ti $ipinto o w 1 II "HN.
