Time to play the first three Stooges LPs very loud in tribute.

Ron Asheton. rip :-(

How sad- he was far too young.He seemed a gentle & unassuming chap, and a riff-maker of true greatness.

Couldn't agree more - this is very sad news.

I saw The Stooges do their "Fun House" gig at Hammersmith in '05 (as I'm sure a few others on here did, too) - THE most powerful live band I've ever seen and RA was key to this, IMO.

Feel free to add a sweary word or two here for me...

Sad news indeed. It actually made the Radio 4 7 o'clock bulletin.

What next ? Iggy advertising car insurance is it?

A bad thing for modern music, but thanks for the riffs Ron.

How sad, too, that he wasn't found for several days.

Time to spin Funhouse...

Iggy at Glastonbury 2007 was the best/funniest TV gig I've ever seen. An honour to see Iggy and the Stooges together for the last time.

i do hope it wasn't suicide- my 1st thought as he made little money in/from The Stooges by all accounts, and having been alone for a few days too.. lets hope not.

also Mike Watt's Gibson SG bass rip too, along with a truck of Stooges gear in Montreal. but thats not important in context. but tragic all the same.

It is certainly being reported as natural causes, I have not read anything to suggest otherwise. Nothing on Mike Watt's page yet.

Tony.

What a drag.

More and more musicians who survived the '60s are now dying before they reach old age.

A top guitarist and a massive influence on a lot of bands.

It does worryingly make me wonder sometimes if previous "substance abuse" does kick in and catch up with you later in life.
