Rob Tyner, lead vocalist for the rock group MC5, died Tuesday of an apparent heart attack. He was 46. Mr. Tyner, whose legal name was Robert Derminer, was the lead singer of the group that critics called a precursor to punk and heavy metal. The Detroit-based band played the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago to raise money for the revolutionary White Panther Party. MC5's biggest hit was "Kick out the Jams," from their self-titled 1969 album. Many record stores initially refused to stock the album because of its incendiary lyrics.
