The Talk
by Doug Moe 
FLEETWOOD MAC'S Saturday night Kohl Center show was the kickoff of its spring U.S. tour, so 16-year-old Aaron Frank, a production assistant for the show, was given an unusual assignment Saturday. What was the assignment? Grocery shopping for the several buses that carry the band's crew from city to city. (The Madison gig was followed by one Sunday in Champaign, then Green Bay and Nashville later this week.)

Aaron Frank is the son of Larry Frank, who is himself the son of Herb Frank, founder of Madison's Frank Productions, which promoted the Fleetwood Mac show here. Saturday afternoon Aaron was handed several pages of legal pad paper, each containing three columns -- the mother of all grocery lists. Rather than panic, he went to the Copps on University Avenue, and with the help of several friendly store employees, Aaron secured everything on the Fleetwood Mac list -- a total of 60 grocery bags at a cost of $1,200.
