another Stooge gone.

Amazing to think of the first incarnation of The Stooges, after the death a couple of days ago of drummer Scott Asheton, only Iggy Pop of the quartet is still alive.

Asheton along with his brother Ron and Iggy played on the bands first three great albums – The Stooges (1967), Fun House (1970) and Raw Power (1973). He also was the drummer when the band reformed in 2003 and played on both the comeback albums – The Weirdness (2007) and Ready to Die (2013).

Those first three classic were punk rock pioneers.
