Scott Asheton [Drums] Ron Asheton [Guitar] Dave Alexander [ Bass] Iggy Stooge[ Vocals]
From the cover of "The Stooges" their 1969 album.

I knew that I had to make the effort and go to BDO to see the Stooges.

It was mindblowing to hear Ron play note for note off the vinyl.

And now he has gone at age 60.

The Stooges were such a seminal influence on the generation of Punk and Garage Band musicans who followed.

But it took the Stooges 30 years to achieve more than cult status with the listening public.

I like this 2005 comment from Amazon.Com.

"This is a no-brainer.The Stooges are the greatest American band of all time.The Asheton/Alexander rhythm section is in the same league as Jackson/Dunn,Ron Asheton is a walkin' talkin' GOD and Iggy is the complete frontman package,and his lyrics are genius.The Beatles suck.And The Stones.And everyone else too.Why bother to make music when the Stooges said it all.Sell your instruments now.There is no point continuing."

Dave Alexander, Scott Asheton,Iggy Pop, Ron Asheton.






"An artist never really chooses when and where they will play.It is for promoters to make offers.It comes down as to whether tours are financially viable." Quote John Mayall.

seeing the stooges play live on that reunion tour was pretty amazing. it was amazing how much energy they put out and, for mine, just blowing away the other bands on the bill at the BDO line up that year. the passing of a punk legend

yeah - at the melb show it seemed obvious that iggy was really enjoying the band and getting off on the guitar. while the igster is hard to beat as a front man, he has had some pretty indifferent backing over the years, so seeing him with the line-up was pretty amazing. its a real pity thats it, as their form was stunning
