    Iggy Pops Guitarist, Ron Asheton of Stooges, Found Dead at 60

    Jan. 6 (Bloomberg) -- The body of guitarist Ron Asheton, a founder of the Stooges, was discovered today by police at his home in Ann Arbor, Michigan, his record company Virgin Music said. He was 60. No cause of death was given.

    Asheton was central to the sound of Iggy Pops band, whose hits, including TV Eye and No Fun, helped inspire punk rock. He played guitar and then bass on the albums The Stooges, Fun House and Raw Power. He joined the Stooges reunions and The Weirdness, the 2007 comeback CD.

    He was a great friend, brother, musician, trooper, Iggy Pop and the other Stooges said in a statement e-mailed by Virgin. For all that knew him behind the facade of Mr. Cool & Quirky, he was a kind-hearted, genuine, warm person who always believed that people meant well even if they did not.
