Soviet rock superstar bands Stas Namin and Rondo had Americans standing on their feet and screaming for more when they appeared in Anchorage, Alaska, over the weekend. “Ya looblyoo tolka rock ‘n’ roll,” sang Sasha Losev, lead singer of the Stas Namin group, in teaching some 4,500 people the Russian lyrics to the band’s song, “I love only rock ‘n’ roll.” The Stas Namin group, once banned in the Soviet Union, has sold 40 million records to Soviet rock fans. Rondo, a Moscow band making its first appearance in the United States, travels on to Washington state and Idaho next month.
