R.I.P.: Ben Edmonds

Mr. Detroit of rock critics and a lovely prose stylist. Wish he had written more and very sorry he never finished the MC5 book. The Detroit Cobras, btw, at their best, are rootsy-rock marvels. Make every effort to see them on stage.

PS: An equally good obit that includes a reason why the MC5 book was never finished. I’m not sure I buy it entirely, but given he was such a nice guy, it’s not unpersuasive.
