The punk icon, Iggy Pop and his reunited group, The Stooges performed at Ann Arbor's Michigan Theater to honour the memory of Ron Asheton, who suffered a heart attack and died at his home in the city in January, 2009.
And, amid the mayhem of The Stooges show, Iggy Pop took a moment to personally honour his late friend.
He told the crowd, "I need to thank Ron. He sort of peed this beautiful music all over me. When I started a band Ron was the first guy who got behind me. I owe him... I know he's trying to flick ashes on my head from heaven right now."
He then performed a new The Stooges song, "Ron's Tune", written by the guitarist's one-time Stooges replacement James Williamson.
Another punk icon, Henry Rollins, hosted the tribute and called Asheton "a peerless guitar player... and a brilliant bass player as well."
Rollins joined Iggy and The Stooges for a rendition of "I Got a Right."
