Acabo de leer que ha muerto Ron Asheton, guitarra fundador de los Stooges, parte esencial de grabaciones míticas que todos tenemos en mente, intérprete de sonido sucio y efectivo. Sólo presencié a los Stooges en su segunda visita al Azkena, pero aunque su disco de retorno es flojete, su concierto allí fue impactante. RIP RON.
We are shocked and shaken by the news of Ron’s death. He was a great friend, brother, musician, trooper. Irreplaceable. He will be missed.
For all that knew him behind the façade of Mr Cool & Quirky, he was a kind-hearted, genuine, warm person who always believed that people meant well even if they did not.
As a musician Ron was The Guitar God, idol to follow and inspire others. That is how he will be remembered by people who had a great pleasure to work with him, learn from him and share good and bad times with him.
Iggy, Scott, Steve, Mike and Crew
I am in shock. He was my best friend.
