Stooges' Guitarist Ron Asheton Found Dead

The Stooges founding member/guitarist Ron Asheton was found dead earlier today. The impact of that band on modern music is innumerable, as the group’s chaotic proto-punk had an intense impact on punk and every “alternative” act that is only equaled to The Velvet Underground. As far as the impact on emo, you can look back to the days when Fugazi was merely a basement project where Ian MacKaye wanted to make music that sounded like the Stooges gone reggae. Enough said there.
