Stooges' guitar player Ron Asheton was found dead yesterday in his home in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
A cause of death is yet to be confirmed, although initial reports suggest that Asheton died of a heart attack.
Detective Sgt Jim Stephenson told local paper Ann Arbor News that foul play is not suspected. He added that Asheton's body was found on a living-room sofa, and that he appeared to have been dead for at least several days.
Asheton was a master of garage trash guitar, being a punk rocker before the genre had been named as such.
