Iggy & the Stooges – The Early Days

Back before he was an old leather chew toy Iggy Pop was a vaguely glammy, pill addled kid from Ann Arbor MI. that would bend over backwards – literally, to perform with his band. Formed in 1967 with the Ashton brothers (Ron & Scot) along w/ Dave Alexander, the band would release 2 poorly received LPs before they imploded from massive heroin use and general bad feelings. Iggy would go on to have an extremely long and varied career reforming the Stooges in 2003 with the Asheton brothers and James Williamson. Ron and Scott would pass away in 2009 and 2014 respectively. And yet, Iggy lives on.
