RIP Scott Asheton – Original Stooge

Scott Asheton, pioneering punk rock drummer passed away over the weekend at the age of 64. Fittingly I actually saw the news on Twitter as I was passing through Detroit. Asheton, a founding member of The Stooges also played with Iggy Pop, Sonic’s Rendezvous Band, Destroy All Monsters and Sonny Vincent. His brother and Stooges guitarist – Ron Asheton – passed away in 2009 at the age of 60.

Domestic now, but spent early to late 80s playing drums in a hair metal band in Toronto. Since then I’ve lost the hair and have found new ways to scratch the rock and roll itch.
