"What's happened to rock?" he asked. "It used to be so simple: The band came in, set up, did a sound check and waited for the show to start. Now, look at. They t r a v e l * w i t h . t r u c k l o a d s o f animals...." "I can remember." Lashinsky went on. "when this band--Z Z Top--didn't use this kind of stuff. All they needed was their amps and their instruments. What's happened?" The answer, of course, is that audiences have asked for more t h a n music f r o m t h e i r rock groups--they want a show. And once groups started giving the kids a show, they didn't know when to quit. Take Z Z Top for example. Once they were among the simplest of rock bands. They were known for t h e i r o v e r p o w e r i n g a m p s , of course, but performing in front of that wall of sound; it was just the band. No frills. Just music. Now Z Z Top is presenting the "-Worldwide Texas Tour," and on this tour, the band brings along: a buffalo, a longhorn steer, a Western diamond back rattle snake, and a buzzard. (They started the tour with a pair of tarantulas, too, but they packed them off to Texas again because they were too much trouble. According to the animal trainer, the tarantulas had to be fed live insects, so the band traveled with live crickets as food for the tarantulas. The crickets had to be kept alive, so the band traveled with Irish potatoes to feed the crickets. And it was too much trouble preparing the potatoes for the bugs that scrubbed the big spider act.) 1 was told by the animal trainer that the band spent an estimated $4.000 per week just on the animals-and all for about 30 seconds in the spotlight at the encore for "atmosphere." Blue Oyster Cult gave its own demonstration of the excesses cf rock with its bombs and smoke and Freaks how lighting effects that night, top. Most of their show was not worth the extra effort, but their closing number. Horn to He WlM was superfine. It deserved the attention it got, and sparkled. But why not reserve such extra touches for special tunes like that? Why make every song a showpiece? Lashinsky expressed wonder at what Kiss--which will be appearing here soon--will be doing in its current "Destroyer" tour. "They'll probably blow up the auditorium." he lamented. Taken with the idea of the excesses of rock shows, we speculated as to what might happen if some big rock group (and it would have to be somebody m a j o r ) s a i d . "Look, rock's gone too far off base. It time to get back to basics. We're just going to stand up here and make good music." Well, what might happen? Lashinsky said, "It might just be so freaky that the kids would like it. It could catch on." It could, but I don't think the day when a band will be that daring is going to come very soon. We're in for lots more special effects and weird acts, I'm afraid. And too often when that happens, the music suffers. That's the bad part. ERRATA: Last week in a record review. I credited Ten Years After with Happening* Ten Yenrs Time. Ago. It was logical--Ten Years After, Ten Years Time... Actually, Happening^ was by the Yardbirds. Ten Years After did have a tie-in with last week's column, however. They had an album called Rock and Roll Music to the World, which is why The Beatles' album which I referred to by that name was-actually released as Rock and Roll Music. Capitol made the change in plans w,hen ttiey learned about the Ten Years A f t e r l.p. And they couldn't call it just WocfcV/foM because John Lennon already had an album by that name.
