Thomas "Zeke" Zettner (September 21, 1948 - November 10, 1973) was a member of rock band The Stooges. Zettner had originally been a roadie for the band, but replaced original Stooges bassist Dave Alexander after the Fun House album (1970) until the end of 1971. Jimmy Recca soon replaced him as bass player. Alexander's drinking problem had made him an unreliable performer.

Death[edit]

Zettner himself was a heroin addict, and did not last long as a member of The Stooges. Zettner died of a heroin overdose on 10 November 1973. His death is mentioned in Iggy Pop's song "Dum Dum Boys" from The Idiot.
