RIP Ron Asheton

Ron Asheton was found dead this morning in his home. He was 60. Ron Asheton was the original guitar player for the Stooges, one of the greatest and most important bands of all time. They're up for the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame this year and they probably won't get in, which is ridiculous.

Anyway, I don't usually do this, but The Stooges were awesome and I love them so go and listen to them today and remember Ron.

Here is a reunited Stooges doing one of my favorites, 1969, with Ron Asheton absolutely killing it.
