Famed Guitarist Found Dead.......

http://f3.yahoofs.com/ymg/stopthepresses/stopthepresses-335346995-1231274333.jpg?ymdVVmADN11lfmPW Guitarist Ron Asheton, a founding member of American punk pioneers the Stooges, was found dead this morning at his home in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Asheton was 60 years old.
Asheton, who'd stayed on the periphery in a variety of punk and hard rock bands over the years between Stooges tours of duty, it was especially sweet: the man, after all, ranked 29 on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time.
I was never into this type of music and I guess it took the "far out" people to really get into this kind of thing..........yet every time a musician, passes on, part of the American/World music heritage goes with them........I'm sure he will be missed like so many others......
