ROCK AND ROLL SHORTS
CREEM magazine, the planet's highest energy rock and roll rag, has moved it's offices. Long holding out on Cass Avenue in grungy Motor City the CREEMers now have a big farmhouse out on 14 Mile in Walled Lake. Mitch Ryder 's band, Detroit, have taken over the fabled old CREEM palace in the Wayne State campus area. Detroit is managed by CREEM staffer Barry Kramer, as are Lucky Dog and the righteous Pride of Women. Cop CREEM at your local newsstand or subscribe, if your the type, by sending 5 bucks to 3729 Cass Ave., Detroit, Mich., 48201. The cover of the latest ish, by the way, was drawn by none other than Gary Grimshaw, Central Committee, Rainbow People's Party. . .
