People be dyin’. Yesterday, guitarist and founding member of The Stooges was found dead in his Ann Arbor home. Foul play is not suspected but black tar heroin is. Asheton also starred in the movies Frostbiter: Wrath of the Wendigo, Hellmaster, and Mosquito.
“As a musician Ron was The Guitar God, idol to follow and inspire others,” Pop and the Stooges said in a statement. “That is how he will be remembered by people who had a great pleasure to work with him, learn from him and share good and bad times with him.”
Thanks to Probot for the tip. he has “real work” to do at his “real job.”
