    Obituaries

    Chris Cornell may have been grunge's finest songwriter. He sang, in his bronzeworthy wail, of alienation and decay, of black holes and black days and the void of the superunknown. He sang, too, of love and hope, of rebirth and absolution, of pains he could never wipe away.

    Chris Cornell speaks to the media as he arrives at the MusiCares Person of the Year tribute honoring Neil Diamond in Los Angeles in 2009. Cornell, who gained fame as the lead singer of Soundgarden and later Audioslave, has died Wednesday night in Detroit at age 52. [Associated Press]

    Music & Concerts

    Over the past 40 years, George Thorogood has become one of American culture's best-known, hardest-touring bluesmen. But the original Delaware Destroyer could've been a Southern rocker.

    SPRING LAKE — It's a music festival that started as an "experiment" with 25 jam bands. It proved quite popular, drawing about 1,000 visitors over three days. By 2016, it had grown into a four-day event featuring 70 bands performing on four stages, with crowds totaling more than 2,500.
