Even after he passed away in 2009, Asheton's legacy hovered somewhere between "overrated" and "underrated," though today his impact cannot be overemphasized. In other words, if you've missed out on his incendiary guitar playing — meaning one of Detroit's legendary bands, the Stooges, has escaped your notice — then you've clearly been on another planet.
We loved the Stooges show April 19, 2011 with our dear friend guitarist Deniz Tek, Henry Rollins and the Ann Arbor Symphony as special guest performers. Now you can see the entire show on DVD at last! Coming out April 9. Information is posted below the poster....Thanks again Heather Harris for the photos/tix...xK

I saw the stooges many times and was always amazed at Rons playing. He burned up the place but most of the time everyone was watching iggy.
wondering if he was going to come out into the crowd or how he would get out into the crowd weather it be with a couple of sunfishes first or mayby just a plain old belly smack into the mud like he did at the mt. clemens pop festival so long ago.
detroit had it all back then. motown, the five, and great players everywhere.
Dick Wagner, Ashton, Smith, Kramer, Koss......Earl Klugh and Jim Messina....
