In my opinion, if they ever join Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, Williamson would perform with Asheton on guitars and Mike Watt on bass Smile In that case I don't believe Ron will ever want to be demoted to bass again. I think personally, that this was even quite not fair to force him to play bass during Raw Power era..Smile

That's pretty much the way I see it too. I'd love to hear how those two would sound together.

Though with that said, I don't understand the bit about playing bass being a "demotion". The bass is every bit as important. And Ron did a hell of a job for a guy who hated it. Still, Ron does belong on guitar.

I was wondering the same thing today : how it would sound with Ron and James playing the guitar.

(of course bass is very important ; but I think if I had played the guitar in a band on two albums, I wouldn't be very happy to be called to play the bass)

Yeah, I guess when you go from the main upfront sound of the band to the background, it can be viewed as a "demotion". But still, it's important. Beats being sacked. Wink

Exactly. I wonder what would have been the next album like after 1971 if they had performed as a quintet Smile

exactly, its better than if Iggy would just have asked for Scotty Razz, and anyway its not like they put a gun to Rons head and forced him to play bass for that band... he could have played guitar in another band or something... but maybee he didnt have anything better to do so he had to anyway...

And, no, it's not necessarily a demotion to move from guitar to bass, of course - but Ron playing guitar the way he does it's pretty much criminal for him to do anything else. Not that he DOESN't play a resoundingly good bass, too (although not as good as Dave Alexander's) but it WAS a demotion for him.

Could someone tell me, is it James Williamson that is responsible for chord sequences that go like this?

D|7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7
A|7-7-5-7-7-7-5-7
E|5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5

which song are these chords supposed to be part of? I think they are used in rock'n'roll music, but I'm not such an expert with theory Smile

That's what I mean. Oh, it's also in No Fun...I guess I'm wrong. But in general the Stooges were the band that used these chord sequences. The earliest example I know at least.

The chord sequence in that particular order would be definitely Wild Love. But I get what you mean. Smile

Simplicity speaks greater volumes than technical wizardry in REAL FUCKIN' ROCK & ROLL.

RON ASHETON IS GOD.

Who else has made three simple chords sound so cool?

Funny thing is, as a guitarist myself I always looked up to those "million miles an hour" players. A couple of them I still do. But Ron has taught me how to appreciate and get the most out of the GROOVE, rather than the flash. He's unknowingly helped me to be a better player. Bless his soul.

Oh yeah...I looked up and remembered this is James' thread. Whoopsie! Laughing

James is awesome in his own way, of course.

True. For my inspiration in such dirty, raw rock'n'roll or whatever, James and Ron are the influences Smile

Yes, this is a Williamson thread, but Ron Asheton most certainly is God!

I guess that makes for quite a lot of gods then. But then everyone has their own preferences of course, their own preferred gods I should say!
