Iggy Pop: Open Up and Bleed

Iggy's on-stage drop backs

Recently read Paul Trynka’s Iggy Pop: Open Up and Bleed.  It read like an E! True Hollywood Story script — in a good way.  I didn’t really know that much about Iggy Pop, his influence on music, performing, or his strong connections with David Bowie and The White Stripes.  Despite the many references to his eh-hmm endowment, a friend in the know informed me that it isn’t that impressive.  Sorry.

Fact:  Iggy Pop has followed a macrobiotic diet.

Fact:  Iggy’s dance and yoga-like stretching inspired Gerard Malanga’s infamous nudie photo.

Fact: Kurt Cobain said that “Raw Power” was one of his favorite albums ever.

Fact: David Bowie snorted an obscene amount of cocaine.

Fact:  Iggy, in line with a ridiculously high number of rock stars (or whatever), has/had a penchant for underage girls.

But still…
