R.I.P., Scott Asheton

Earlier this month, drummer Scott Asheton passed away at the age of 64.


Asheton was one of the founding members of the iconic punk band The Stooges along with his brother Ron, Iggy Pop and Dave Alexander. He played with the band throughout their initial run from 1967 to 1974 and rejoined when the group rebanded in 2003. At the time of his death, he was the only remaining founding member of the band besides frontman Iggy Pop. He passed away from a heart attack on March 15.

Goodbye, Mr. Asheton!
