Another Athens spirit, unexpectedly retired from the world, for now. “Local musician Craig Lieske has passed away, reportedly due to an aneurysm. A member of local improv-rock group Garbage Island, as well as a member of the Drive-By Truckers’ touring crew, [Lieske] contributed his talents to countless other local bands during his many years in Athens. He was 48.”
