Iggy Pop

"For more than 40 years, rock 'n' roll has played an integral role in the cultural development of the modern world. In the past 30 years, one guy has quietly assumed an equally integral role as an innovator and icon to at least two generations of rock enthusiasts, both musicians and fans alike. No other performer has traveled along the chaotic road of success like this individual. … There have been a select number of survivors...but only one with the scars to show for it, and one with the determination to keep moving forward as an artist. - Iggy Pop. Born in Muskegon, Michigan on April 21, 1947 as James Newell Osterberg, Iggy Pop grew up a shy, introverted kid in a small trailer park with his parents, not far from Ann Arbor, Michigan. From the mid 1960's, as the drummer for his high-school group, The Iguanas - to leader of the bastard-child band of the late-60's, The Stooges - to the unpredictable solo artist who has spanned the last 20 years - Iggy Pop has consistently challenged the rock `n' roll establishment. The Stooges, with their anarchistic blend of the Blues and uncontrollable energy, were considered banal, three-chord noise to most critics but ahead of their time to their fans. … In retrospect, despite his seemingly elusive commercial success over the years, the music of Iggy Pop has persistently and subliminally infiltrated the mainstream musical core, as well as a powerful inspiration for countless musicians." – from Virgin Records' official Web site.
