One of the greatest guitarists in rock history, Ron Asheton of The Stooges, has been found dead in his home in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He was 60 years-old.
Police entered Asheton’s home early this morning after being notified by an associate who had been unable to reach him for several days. The officers found no signs of foul play. Death appears to have been from natural causes.
Asheton was a founding member of the band, which gained local fame as early as 1967. Asheton’s brother Scott was the drummer.
