R.I.P. Ron Asheton of the Stooges

Crap. Ron Asheton of The Stooges has reportedly passed away at the age of 60. I'll post more info and links when I have them.

Edited to add: Here's a collection of articles, opinions, etc. on Ron Asheton's passing. I can't say much that hasn't already been said, but I thank Ron for the music he gave us and am glad that he and the band have gotten some of the recognition they deserve in recent years.

It's a sad day. My take, for what it's worth.
