Written by admin on January 7, 2009
Ron Asheton’s Stooges bandmates, Iggy Pop, Scott Asheton, Mike Watt and Steve MacKay posted a statement on Iggy Pop’s official website on his passing:
We are shocked and shaken by the news of Ronâ€™s death. He was a great friend, brother, musician, trooper. Irreplaceable. He will be missed.
For all that knew him behind the faÃ§ade of Mr Cool & Quirky, he was a kind-hearted, genuine, warm person who always believed that people meant well even if they did not.
As a musician Ron was The Guitar God, idol to follow and inspire others. 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.
Iggy, Scott, Steve, Mike and Crew
