R.I.P. RON ASHETON (Stooges)

The Stooges guitarist Ron Asheton has been found dead at his home in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Asheton, 60, was an original member of the rock band fronted by Iggy Pop in the late 1960s and early 1970s. His riffing featured on hits including I Wanna Be Your Dog, No Fun and Down On The Street. Police sergeant Brad Hill said there were no signs of foul play, and the musician's death appeared to be from natural causes. The band - which also included Asheton's brother Scott on drums and the late Dave Alexander on bass - are on the shortlist to enter the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this April.
ROCK IN PEACE, Ron and thanks for last summer's party.
