Ron Asheton – RIP
Asheton’s personal assistant contacted police late Monday night after being unable to reach Asheton for days, according to local police detective Bill Stanford.
Officers went to the home on Highlake Avenue at around midnight and discovered Asheton’s body on a living-room couch. He appeared to have been dead for at least several days, Stanford said.
Detective Sgt. Jim Stephenson said the cause of death is undetermined but investigators do not suspect foul play. Autopsy and toxicology results are pending.
Asheton, 60, was an original member of The Stooges, the garage-rock band headlined by Iggy Pop and formed in Ann Arbor in 1967.
