In April 2011, Iggy Pop curated a massive concert to honor the late Stooges guitarist and bassist Ron Asheton in Asheton’s hometown of Ann Arbor, Michigan. One of the night’s highlights came when Henry Rollins joined the Stooges for “I Got a Right,” and the former Black Flag frontman filled in for Iggy Pop and lent his fury to the thrashing track. As this exclusive clip shows, Rollins proved that his edge is as sharp as ever, and James Williamson fired off an excellent guitar solo.
The Ron Asheton Tribute Concert will be released on DVD on June 4th. All profits will go towards the Ron Asheton Foundation, which supports animal welfare and music. The Stooges’ new album, Ready to Die, will be out April 30th.
