Scott Asheton co-founded the band in 1967 alongside Iggy Pop, bassist Dave Alexander (who passed away in 1975) and his guitarist brother Ron Asheton (who died in 2009).

No cause of death has been given, but he had 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 He’d been replaced by Toby Dammit on the road since then.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 that Asheton had passed away 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. The Ashetons have always been, and continue to be, a second family to me. My thoughts are with his sister Kathy, his wife Liz and his daughter Leanna, who was the light of his life.”

The Stooges, who split in 1974 then regrouped in 2003, recently completed an album without Pop. Re-Licked is a collection of unrecorded tracks written in 1973 and 1974, and featuring guest appearances by Mark Lanegan, Jello Biafra and others. It’s expected later this year.

J'ai vu ça tout à l'heure et j'attendais de voir l'annonce obligée ici, chez ceux qui savent.
J'ai rien de drôle à dire ni rien de solennel. Je note tout de même que Ted Nugent parmi d'autres est toujours debout.
C'est toujours les meilleurs... comme on dit.
