February 4, 1994 | BUDDY SEIGAL, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
The sight of Rick Derringer flying across a stage like a guitar-wielding sprite on amphetamines is one of the indelible images of pre-punk, '70s rock 'n' roll. In oversized fur boots, garish capes, feathered 'do, Day-Glo rouge and other such rock star accouterments, Derringer was either frash-cool or vulgar excess personified, depending on one's point of view. The fact that he's typecast as a '70s guy isn't lost on Derringer, who plays tonight at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano.

The garish clothing and platform boots. The shag haircuts and glitter makeup. The hyperkinetic stage shows and speed-freak guitar playing. Fine hotels, limousines, champagne, groupies. The image of Rick Derringer stomping across a stage like some demented sprite wired for sound seems to sum up the rock 'n' roll scene of the '70s. Here was a guy who, for better or worse, epitomized pre-punk rock stardom and all its strutting flamboyance.
