Dunno if some of you already know this, but Ron once filled in on bass (replacing Michael Davis, who was in jail) for the MC5, at a gig that the Stooges opened. It took place 6 June at the Eastown Theater, Detroit, MI. Here's a quote from him:

Ron Asheton: So we (Stooges) played and they asked me if I'd play bass, and we just did like, i didn't know songs, but we did like four songs, real long versions, a lotta playing for almost an hour. We did a couple blues things and we did "Looking At You", "Kick Out The Jams", stuff that i know. It was really fun, it was fun, it was a different feeling for me to hear the big double guitars, i was used to holding everything up myself, well, i had the bass, i could power down with it, but Wayne had a speaker, like we used to do, you'd have your speaker, then double up the stacks you'd have guitars, you'd have a little bit of everything. So i happened to have my ear, and i was used to it, didn't bother me at the time, but i guess double doses of me bein'...my ear when I'm playin' guitar and Wayne's...i got offstage and thought it's just a ringing but i couldn't hear out of this ear for about three days...it was like seriously heavy fingers, cotton, it was driving me nuts...i went woah!!! I'd pound on it, stick things in it, but it was fun, really did enjoy that, i was glad that i got to do that. (BTC #14)
