Scott Asheton

Iggy Pop has announced that Stooges drummer Scott Asheton has passed away.

The announcement read:

My dear friend Scott Asheton passed away last night.

Scott was a great artist, I have never heard anyone play the drums with more meaning than Scott Asheton. He was like my brother. He and Ron have left a huge legacy to the world. The Asheton’s have always been and continue to be a second family to me.

My thoughts are with his sister Kathy, his wife Liz and his daughter Leanna, who was the light of his life.

Iggy Pop

Everyone at the Metro Times would like to add our sincerest condolences, love and best wishes to all of Scott’s friends and family. Rock was a special talent.
