Drummer for legendary punk rockers The Stooges dies

Scott Asheton, drummer for Detroit rock/punk band the Stooges, died Saturday. He was 64. Iggy Pop posted on his Facebook page Sunday that he’s “never heard anyone play the drums with more meaning than Scott Asheton. He was like my brother .”

Asheton was part of the Stooges when they formed in 1967 in Ann Arbor, Mich. His older brother, Ron, was the group’s guitarist, died in 2009.  Scott suffered from undisclosed illnesses in 2011 and was unable to perform at summer music festivals in Europe with the Stooges.
