Remembering Ron Asheton.

I didn’t get a full appreciation for Ron Asheton’s influence on punk music until I read a magazine article on how Iggy Pop got The Stooges back together. The article covered the history of the band and had a nice analysis of Asheton’s various playing styles. No wonder he was such an influence on other bands. And now he’s gone. What a sad day for the music world. From now on, when you go outside and hear thunder, you’ll know it’s Ron Asheton up there, rocking away in the clouds. He will be missed.
