* Patrick Lippert, 35, leader of last year's celebrated Rock the Vote political campaign, died of AIDS complications Tuesday at Daniel Freeman Hospital in Marina del Rey, Calif., after a two-year illness. In 1991, Mr. Lippert became executive director of Rock the Vote, a nationwide campaign to sign up young voters that relied heavily on MTV. The group registered 350,000 people, and claimed credit for an 18 percent increase in the turnout among 18- to 24-year-olds in the 1992 election.
