Iggy and the Stooges' Scott Asheton Dead at 64
No cause of death has been given, but he'd been unwell since suffering a stroke after the band played at Hellfest in France in 2011. He'd been replaced by Toby Dammit on the road since then. His last studio appearance was on last year's album Ready To Die.
Confirming Asheton had passed on Saturday, Pop said in a statement: "Scott was a great artist. I have never heard anyone play the drums with more meaning. He was like my brother. He and Ron have left a huge legacy to the world."
