    Default Iggy The Stooges Guitarist Ron Asheton Found Dead At 60


    The Stooges guitarist Ron Asheton found dead at 60

    ANN ARBOR, Mich. –Punk guitarist Ron Asheton of The Stooges has been found dead in his Ann Arbor home. He was 60.

    City police Sgt. Brad Hill says there were no signs of foul play, and the death appeared to be of natural causes.

    Hill says officers discovered Asheton early Tuesday after they were called to his home around midnight by an associate who hadn't heard from him in several days.

    Asheton was an original member of The Stooges, the influential protopunk band founded in Ann Arbor in 1967. Asheton's brother, Scott, was the band's drummer.

    Asheton's distorted guitar was a hallmark of the Iggy Pop-led group's late-1960s and early-1970s sound

    These rock star deaths in which the subject dies alone always unnerve me. Especially when we know he had at least one sibling. Ironically, during The Stooges heydey, Ron was the one who didn't have a heroin problem. Given the nine lives of the Stooges this is very sad.
