Ron Asheton, guitarist for one of the greatest rock 'n' roll bands of all time, The Stooges, was found dead at his Ann Arbor, Michigan home early this morning. He was 60 years old, and according to MTV News, the cause of his death is still being determined (police found Asheton dead on his couch after being contacted by his concerned personal assistant). The sad announcement about the Stooges co-founder has already brought many a "rock in peace" message to Asheton's MySpace page, where I imagine testimonies will start flooding in as the news continues to spread. -- Jennifer Maerz
