The frost this morning was pretty severe and curtailed any computer activity prior to leaving for work. To my mind, it's the best time to try and get stuff up here. Any futz with my basic routine can knock things awry for the remainder of the day. This is one of those. So I come home to the news about Ron Asheton and I have to say that it's a shock. All the more heartbreaking because he could have been there for a few days before the discovery.

The noise the man made will live forever though. It's a damn crime that he never got to enjoy the fruits of his labours in recent years. To me, the only good thing about the reunion was that finally Ron got the recognition he deserved. And a boatload of money hopefully. I have it on good authority that he was happy in recent times so that's something at least.

Here is a screaming example of life not being fair. Not at all. Go to the Houndblog, this is the best thing I've found on the subject so far and the way RA should be remembered!
RIP - Ron Asheton (!)
