Leathery, weathered, and never bettered, Iggy Pop came writhing onto the scene in 1967 as the frontman for The Stooges. While the band was slow to sell any vinyl, it was their raw, in-your-face live sets that gained them notoriety – mainly thanks to Iggy’s onstage uncompromising performances.
By 1973, Iggy had succumbed to the twin demons of drink and drugs, and eventually relocated to Berlin in an attempt to overcome his addictions. While there, he met and befriended a certain David Bowie, who helped him launch his solo career, resulting in The Idiot and the breakthrough album, Lust for Life.
Credited as the inventor of the stage-dive and almost-guaranteed to show more skin than necessary, although Iggy never achieved conventional commercial success, he released some iconic tunes, such as The Passenger, I Wanna Be Your Dog and Real Wild Child (Wild One).
Iggy’s legacy has had obvious influences on the likes of The Sex Pistols, The Damned and The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, cementing his position as a punk pioneer and a creative force to be reckoned with.
