“My dear friend Scott Asheton passed away last night,” Pop said.
“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 helped form the band in 1967, and played with them through last year’s “Ready to Die” LP. His brother Ron, also a founding member and guitarist for the band, died in 2009.
More to come….
