HERNDON, Va. (AP) — USA Today reports that its longtime music critic, Steve Jones, who impressed people with his mental warehouse of music history and his unflappable cool, has died. He was 57.
Jones, whose career spanned nearly 28 years at the paper, died at his Herndon, Va., home Friday morning after a long illness.
