Stooges drummer Scott Asheton dead at 64
"My dear friend Scott Asheton passed away last night," Pop posted on Sunday.
"Scott was a great artist, I have never heard anyone play the drums with more meaning than Scott Asheton. He was like my brother. He and Ron have left a huge legacy to the world. The Asheton's have always been and continue to be a second family to me."
Asheton's brother Ron, guitarist and also original member of the Stooges, died in 2009.
Scott Asheton was still active with the band and performed on last year's "Ready To Die" album.
