January 20, 2009

Scott (Morgan) on the passing of close friend Ron Asheton:

The first time I saw Ron was opening day at Forsythe Junior High School. He was just in from Davenport, Iowa. That's close to where my father grew up.

When we both decided we were going to be musicians, come hell or high water, that's when we got to know each other better. Everyone thought they had the top card, but in realty it was all just a friendly game of cans (which was a game we used to play with Dave Alexander in the breezeway of Dave's house, throwing empty beer cans in the trash.)

I don't think Ron's loss really hit me at first. I had just spent a quiet evening at his home on Christmas Eve. It was an annual tradition and very pleasant. We would have a holiday spread and a few small sips of his favorite whisky.

Ron loved his cats and even called me from London when he was worried about them. I admired him so much for taking care of Larry Fine in the actors' home. I think we're all in the Three Stooges fan club. We're coming to you're house to break up the joint.

As I've said before I believe Ron, Fred Smith and me were the first to use what I call a five chord. There is no third in it. Well, when we play 1969, Down on the Street, and I Wanna Be Your Dog, I believe the vibrations go straight to the Ashetons' basement.

Powertrane will host a memorial show for Ron:

It was a good time. The highlight of the night is when one of the guys took off his shirt and smeared ketchup AND peanut butter on his chest. Haha. Also, the Destroy All Monsters guys kicked ass.
