The effects of C60 molecular orientation and rotation on the electronic structure of fcc C60 solid have been investigated by performing a band structure calculation with self-consistent mixed-basis all electron and full-potential approach within local density approximation. We present an angle-dependent density of states of HOMO and LUMO bands, which should be compared to the angle-resolved photoemission data.
