Ron Asheton: 1948-2009

Stooges' guitar player Ron Asheton was found dead yesterday in his home in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

A cause of death is yet to be confirmed, although initial reports suggest that Asheton died of a heart attack.

Detective Sgt Jim Stephenson told local paper Ann Arbor News that foul play is not suspected. He added that Asheton's body was found on a living-room sofa, and that he appeared to have been dead for at least several days.

Asheton was a master of garage trash guitar, being a punk rocker before the genre had been named as such.
