Er wird nicht umsonst als der "Godfather of Punk" bezeichnet. Seine Shows sind seit Beginn seiner Karriere (und das ist verdammt
lange her) mitunter das Energiegeladenste unter der Sonne.
Sänger, Gitarrist, Schlagzeuger, Komponist und Schauspieler - Iggy ist einer der vielseitigsten Künstler alive, ob mit oder
ohne The Stooges.
Legendär und unerreicht.
A lot of what I did was: If youre not gonna do it, Ill do it for ya, Ill do it first.
There's a reason why many consider Iggy Pop the godfather of punk - every single punk band of the past and present has either
knowingly or unknowingly borrowed a thing or two from him and his late -'60s/early-'70s band, The Stooges.
Widely acknowledged as one of the most dynamic stage performers of all time, Iggy Pop pre-figured both 70s punk and
90s grunge and has built a legendary career filled with both critical acclaim and fanatic cult success.
There are never-ending migrations back to the Stooges three seminal LPs, starting with the classic self-titled debut of 1969,
The Stooges, 1970s Funhouse and 1973s Raw Power, while some Iggys iconic solo albums including Lust For
Life, The Idiot, New Values, Zombie Birdhouse, Blah Blah Blah, Brick by Brick, American Caesarand the more recent Skull Ring,
Preliminaires and Apres, along with many features and collaborations, have cemented his status as a true music innovator.
Some of those albums produced anthemic sounds like The Passenger, commercially successful collaborations like Candy (with
Kate Pierson) and hits featured in cult movies (Lust for Life and In the Death Car).
In 2010, Iggy and the Stooges were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Iggy makes a welcome solo return to the live
stage in 2015 after successfully touring the globe with The Stooges for the last decade.
