I've just learned that Stooges guitarist Ron Asheton, has passed away at the age of 60.

No fun.

You are a fascinating bundle of contradictions Mr. Cashin.

I note that you mentioned John Lennon not too long ago. Fine! But please don't forget that we're approaching the 50th anniversary of "The Day The Music Died" - so I hope you'll mention Buddy and the others when we get there.

I had Iggy's dad for English at Fordson High School back in the '70s. His take on The Stooges, and all rock shows of the time, was that they were the modern circuses. I guess to be specific, Circus with a capital C.

Interesting.
