  2. Who would have thought Iggy would be the last one standing.

    Not long since his brother passed either :(

    ^yeah, my thoughts exactly. Of all the stooges, I would have pegged Iggy to be the first one to drop not the last one standing.

    Iggy has that rare quality known as "endurance."

    RIP, Scott Asheton. Sad news, but hey, he's still got Watt! :bassist:
  6. Punk rock drummer makes it to 64. That should be the headline.

    RIP, how cool to be credited with inspiring an entire genre of music.

    Exactly. I saw the Stooges in late 2012, Scott wasn't there--sick already, I believe. RIP.

    I feel bad for Watt, he loved these guys and they're dropping all around him.:(

    And probably a bit more money from his solo stuff than the other original Stooges. Easier to stay healthy when you can pay for it!
