No fun, my babe, no fun.

Ron Asheton

Ron Asheton: July 17, 1948 – January 6, 2009

Ronald Frank Asheton – the legendary guitarist and bassist with The Stooges died tragically from a heart attack earlier this month. Crucial to the thunderous Stooges sound, Asheton, as all of The Stooges, was never really appreciated during height of the band creativity between ’69 and ’72.

 

I had the pleasure of watching Asheton and The Stooges last summer and he sounded as good as ever – urgent, uncompromising and utterly compelling.

 

He’ll be sorely missed.
