Just checking in to honor a couple of passings in the music world.
The first is peripheral. Mick Jagger’s girlfriend L’Ren Scott was found dead from an apparent suicide in her apartment in New York. It’s always tragic when someone takes their own life, but even more so when that person is young, talented, and successful. My heart goes out to her family and friends.
The other passing is of the Stooges’ drummer Scott Asheton. Asheton–along with his brother Ron, Dave Alexander, and of course, Iggy Pop–helped create some of the most glorious noise in Rock history. The Stooges were the prototype for Punk, and they were pretty damn awesome.
