IGGY AND THE STOOGES - Glastonbury 2007 (R.I.P. Ron Asheton)

Well this sucks. Poor Ron Asheton. And just as The Stooges have a real shot at induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame too...

(UPDATE: they didn't make it in. Again. But thank god Run-DMC did, since they're so much more important to the history of rock and roll! Heckuva job, assholes. Maybe next year you can continue your streak, and screw over hacks like The Stooges, Rush, Randy Newman, Todd Rundgren, Deep Purple and The Zombies while inducting such rock and roll icons as Big Daddy Kane, Kool Moe Dee, the Sugar Hill Gang, Biz Markie and the Fat Boys. )

Aaanyway, the real point is that it always hurts when someone dies in the midst of a well-deserved revival -- just ask poor Roy Orbison or Arthur Lee.

Oh well, here's a wicked show from the midst of that epic comeback, two summers ago at the U.K. Glastonbury Festival. Nice loud TV broadcast sound, and some bonus interview/ performance bits from the "Jonathan Ross" show over there.

R.I.P. Ron, Punk Godfather and Psychedelic Stooge!
