Oh no, I just read that Ron Asheton, legendary guitarist of The Stooges, has died. Ron was 60.

Ron was found dead this morning in his home in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

In recent years, The Stooges, which also included Ron’s brother Scott Asheton and the great Iggy Pop, had reunited and in 2007 the band released The Weirdness, a critically acclaimed album of new material.
