Ron Asheton, 1948-2009

January 6th, 2009 at 4:12 pm by Gerard

Earlier today, reported the passing of original Stooges guitarist Ron Asheton at the age of 60. Dead of an apparent heart attack, Asheton’s pioneering work with the Stooges, New Order, New Race (alongside Radio Birdman’s Deniz Tek and Rob Younger) and Destroy All Monsters casts a major creative shadow over much of the music we obsess over.

Asheton will be sorely missed, and our thoughts go out to his friends and family.
