Craig Lieske RIP

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.”
