Hometown boy Ron Asheton died here in town today. He was 60. With The Stooges, whose sound he was indispensable in creating, he was responsible for some of the most ferocious licks and picks in the rock canon. Thank you, Ron Asheton, for making some of the sweetest noise to come out of an electric guitar. You made my hair curl and gave me the soundtrack to a half dozen of the most fucked up nights in my life. Please turn it up.
