"I see expensive equipment out there," Soundgarden's singer Chris Cornell said as he eyed the photographers' gear at the Whisky on Thursday night. "That's your sign to thrash." It was a misleading invitation. The song that followed, like most of the Seattle metal-pups' repertoire, moved at a deliberate tempo that dictated a less frenzied brand of body language. The crowd responded with a sort of slow-motion head-snapping, like repeated swings with a heavy hammer.

She sits alone. "The widows of the world," she whispers, "they understand this"--understand the mournful lament of "Ocean Child," Yoko, a spirit filled with poetry. "Sleepless night/the moon is bright," she pens into her writing book. "Woke up this morning/Blues around my head/No need to ask the reason why. . . ." No need.

You can still buy a ticket to the 1969 Woodstock Music and Art Fair at a couple of downtown Saugerties shops--but the price has risen just a bit in 25 years. Framed behind glass in one store window, an $8 one-day ticket to that legendary "Aquarian exposition" sells for a cool $49.95. Think of it as nostalgia markup. And figure it's still a lot cheaper than the $135 ticket price for Woodstock '94, next month's 25th-anniversary spin-off of the generation-defining original.

Mike Garson obviously takes the piano very seriously, but he can chuckle over some of the contradictory paths that a versatile mastery of the keys has led him down. Maybe the unlikeliest of all is the one he's embarking on Saturday at Segerstrom Concert Hall in Costa Mesa, where he'll lead 44 instrumentalists, augmented by a 55-voice children's choir, in the premiere of his "Symphonic Suite for Healing. " Even an accomplished musician like Garson, who's best known as a key sideman during David Bowie's 1970s rise to superstardom but who usually plays jazz or a jazz-classical fusion when left to his own devices, can laughingly confess that what he's doing isn't brain surgery or as important as finding a cure for cancer.
