Ron Asheton Tribute Concert 'Tribute to Ron Asheton' Coming to DVD -

The tribute concert which took place in 2011 in memory of original Stooges guitarist Ron Asheton will receive a DVD release in April via MVD Entertainment Group.

The renowned guitarist and Stooges co-songwriter, who featured at #29 on Rolling Stone's list of '100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time,' passed away on New Year's day in 2009 after a suspected heart attack.

On April 19th 2011 his former band mates, which included frotman Iggy Pop, Ron's brother and bandmate Scott Asheton, bassist Mike Watt, saxophonist Steve Mackay and 'Raw Power'-era guitarist James Williamson, staged a tribute concert at the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor in honour of the guitarist's legacy and music.
