This just came in:

"The 60-year-old's body was discovered by police in the living room of his Ann Arbor house after his personal assistant raised the alarm about his whereabouts when she couldn't reach the star."

Personal assistant? Dara? They were real close.

I always say I wanna live forever. When I do most people say WHY? It's hell getting old. Yer sick and disabled and lonely and miserable. So you should just party your life away and enjoy every minute. Maybe. But I never believed in "I hope I die before I get old." And I wanna checkout in my sleep--it's the only way to go. But Ron had miles to go.

I just hope it was painless for Ron. A matter of going to sleep without waking up.

I hate even talking about this, honestly. Sad

It's practically all the press IS talking about ... the way he went. And everybody in here who keeps saying what a terrible way to die. All I'm saying is there's worse ways to go. He was a loner his whole life. He liked it that way. Death is part of life.

The one I'm thinking of now is Dara, how supportive she was thru these many yrs, never losing faith in him, fighting the good fight.

How shameful that it takes a death for Virgin's iggypop.com to update their site (no offence meant for Dave)

There was an autopsy today.

A well known A2 musician who spent Christmas Eve with him wrote me ending the letter with
THREE CORDS AND A CLOUD OF DUST...

Raw eloquence I say

Art Collins was just 3 yrs ago!

True. Yeah, I think they mean well, but the site was neglected for a long, long time. Hopefully this will change. And nah, no offense taken.

Well, at least we'll know what cause of death was, for what it's worth.

Hmm...that's pretty cool. The letter, that is.

That's right, and I was lucky to meet Art not too long before he died. Pretty cool guy!

Sad to see them go but may they be forever free.

I don't usually (or ever) post but I wanted to express condolences for Ron and his people on behalf of my late friend Michael Shelton, a longtime Stooges fanatic and friend of the band, who some of you may have known. RIP Ron and Michael. X.

As well as being a fantastic player, Ron was a friend of mine. Nicest guy you'd ever want to meet. He was not a drug user, either, but enjoyed his Stolichnaya from time to time. I still can't believe he's gone. I will forever treasure the memories of the times we played together.

Yep, Dara called the police and she let them in with her key, Cyd.
She kept that man in line. Remember the fun we had with her on Net 54? We were such catty little witches back then, including her. She was definitely the life of the party. We didn't believe she was really Ron's assistant and gave her a hell of a time and then we became friends. Remember that great picture of her and Gui in Paris? She was the most reliable person when it came to backstage passes.

I ditched work, I am not ready for prime time. I couldn't bring myself to do much more than post the official statement yesterday and read mail about all of this. My site had more visitors than it ever has, far surpassing even the Stooges reunion. I'll gather all the press about this sad event today, the breadth of which is truly astounding. The autopsy won't be final until the toxicology reports come in. I will forward any info about funeral services here and if you want to send letters of condolence I will forward them to management.

I'm stunned to hear about Ron's passing. What a tragedy. One of the true guitar originators gone forever... I certainly didn't see this coming...

R.I.P Ron and God bless You.

The title of this thread...some sick joke was my first reaction...
Not just his talent, but he was such a lovely man. Never met him, now I never will.
This is just too much of a shock. It just can't be true...why why WHY?????????

Seriously. Listening to Down the street and other songs from the two first... Him dying and if heaven exists, you can figure he'll gonna get one hell of a much virgins up there.
At least I got to see them play once... Now I only have their albums to be cheered by.

But still. This guitarist, he's the one that meant most for me in music. I'll dedicate joy in his memory for as long as I live...

I wore my stooges t-shirt to school today, i couldn't talk about it to anyone, i still can't quite believe it, i think it'll take a long time.

I've listened to The Stooges at every moment i could today, he'll be greatly missed.

My school are a bunch of insensitive bastards. I wore Stooges t-shirt and drew a picture of Ron on my hand. I got a grilling about he was, why he died and that if he touched drugs he deserved to die...and that was from teachers.

I've cried non stop today. Its so unfair. No

I really wanted to but I have important exams later this month so I just want to get through them.

I really miss Ron so badly, hes gone. My one goal in life was to meet him. I can't stop crying and I've been sick several times, I just don't want toaccept it. My hero is dead. (cry)

It was just reported that his personal assistant, and others, were caought loading all of his guitars onto a van.

Sad

Good thing is, they made it all be returned, and are having security watch his house, and they changed all the locks.

Was a bit (horribly) weird that a few hours before being informed of his death that I was reading an interview with Fucked Up's singer who mentioned how much of an influence Ron Asheton was to him.
