Russell Rocks Out In London
- Film star's Gig Not Something To Crow About

THE BORDERLINE club, one of London's most famous small venues, played host to an unusual act last night in the form of Gladiator star Russell Crowe.

Crowe was on stage with his band, the unforgettably named 30 Odd Foot Of Grunts. However, while his strapping appearance in The Gladiator may have audiences, and current squeeze, Meg Ryan, falling to their knees, Crowe failed to woo the Borderline crowd. Not surprising, really, considering his attire of a black vest tucked firmly into his jeans.

Indeed, some punters at the club took great offence at the film star's below par performance - particularly during an airing of I want To Be Like Marlon Brando which was a flop in his home country of New Zealand during the 80s when the actor was a punk rocker named Russ Le Roq.

Really, Crowe should have known better. Film stars aren't exactly famed for careers in music. Take Keanu Reeves, for instance, and his dreadful band Dogstar. Not what you'd call a howling success.
