I got this from Niagara (singer for Destroy All Monsters and Dark Carnival) via the myspace page.


RON ASHETON TRIBUTE NIGHT
Niagara and Colonel Galaxy invite friends to pay tribute to the late Stooges guitarist, Ron Asheton as they host, “Ronnie…Thanks A Million”, Saturday, January 17th at 9PM at the historic Music Hall Center For The Performing Arts in downtown Detroit.

There is free admission but attendees are encouraged to donate what they can to help cover the night’s expenses and Ron’s favorite charity, The Michigan Humane Society.

Niagara, Asheton’s former Destroy All Monsters and Dark Carnival bandmate and muse will host, along with Colonel Galaxy, a celebration of Ronnie’s life and a chance to express their love along with all of his friends and fans with a tribute for a guy Rolling Stone called "One of the greatest guitarists of all time".

Tributes from those who knew him- and some who didn’t, but were influenced by him will speak from the stage where such legends as WC Fields, Miles Davis and Billy Holiday performed, Ron’s music will be played and a tribute film retrospect by Tim Caldwell will beshown. Music Hall is Detroit’s oldest performing arts venue (1928) and is a beautifully restored facility, appropriate for this memorable night.
There will be a cash bar in the Hall as well as in Jazz Café for attendees.

Plus, a Dark Carnival alumni performance led by BootseyX & The Lovemasters and some VERY special friends will play in honor their late band mate and friend, in the Jazz Café following the main stage tributes at 11 PM.

Ron Asheton was more than an innovative guitarist, he was an easygoing, subtly hilarious guy- who, simply and effectively created a sound and aesthetic, which will forever reverberate as long as there are guitar players. Ron maximized his early work into postmodern art of the highest order. In retrospect, Ron’s influence cannot be overstated, only imitated.

Ronnie used to like to say, “thanks a million” in mock gratitude when joking with friends. Now here’s our last chance to say, “Ronnie… Thanks A Million.”

More info for this tribute may be found on www. myspace. com/niagaradetroit

From cb:

"This will be the only public event honoring Ron. The funeral will be private. Donations to the animal fund...more later,"

great tributes on there too...someone saying of Ron:'We both knew how it felt to live in the dark and how important those who could bring us out of it were'. That really caught me. I empathise with that a lot at the moment.

Great link thanks! Smile

I see one of the people playing was wearing a similar iron cross to Ron's. What is the name of that type anyway?
