Iggy And The Stooges
WebsiteIggy And The Stooges
Forty-plus years after the release of Fun House, and Iggy and The Stooges still wanna be your dog. The Motor City-bred punk godfathers were only together from 1967 to 1974 before a combination of David Bowie and massive amounts of heroin thwarted their rise to the top, but the group’s anarchic style, combined with Iggy Pop’s wild antics (he’s sometimes credited as the pioneer of stage diving) indelibly scarred the rock landscape. The group reunited in 2003, released the just-okay Steve Albini-produced The Weirdness in 2007, then dealt with the death of longtime guitarist Ron Asheton in 2009 following a heart attack. The leather-faced Pop is a little more yoga-practicing grandpa than bruised punk these days, but the group soldiers on with consistently electric performances.
