Iggy Pop burst out of Detroit in the late '60's as the frontman for the Stooges. The Stooges were raw, immediate and vulgar. Iggy Pop became notorious for self-mutilating himself on stage and whilst smeared in blood diving into the audience. Though largely ignored at the time by mainstream audiences, Iggy and the Stooges helped define the sound and attitude that would latter be known as punk rock.
Following the breakup of The Stooges, Iggy Pop embarked on a solo career dedicated to keeping the dangerous spirit of rock & roll alive. His music and live act has persistently and subliminally infiltrated the mainstream musical core, and has been a powerful inspiration for countless bands. Iggy Pop is now, genuinely, being discovered yet again by a new generation.
Candidly reflecting on his life Iggy Pop expresses his amazement that he is still alive to tell the story of his remarkable career, his relationship with Nico, his life-long friendship and musical collaboration with David Bowie, the drugs and the partying, his resurgence as the original Godfather of punk, his belief in his music and of course his remarkable live performance. Performance excerpts include: - Lust for Life - Tv Eye - No Fun - Search & Destroy - Funtime - Night Clubbing - China Girl - Blah Blah Blah - I'm a God - Natural Feeling - Louie Louie
