In the 1970s, Iggy Pop and his band “The Stooges” were part of the New York underground scene around the legendary punk club “CBGB’s”. His electrifying stage presence and unique voice have helped the American performer to widespread fame. Iggy Pop is considered the inventor of stagediving and surprises his fans with new stage poses at every concert. Many of his songs have gone down in the annals of history and are regularly used in commercials and films.
Iggy Pop was born in 1947 near Ann Arbor in the US state of Michigan. Initially, Iggy Pop played in several school bands before he founded “The Stooges” in 1967. From 1977 Iggy Pop struck out on his own. Since then, he has collaborated with many different artists, including Sum 41, Peaches and Green Day.
Iggy Pop Hits – from “Raw Power” to “Free
“Raw Power” and “Lust for Life” are among Iggy Pop’s most popular albums. They still sell exceedingly well and contain famous Iggy Pop songs like “Search and Destroy”, “Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell” and “The Passenger”. Released in 1973, “Raw Power” is a garage rock classic and was mixed by David Bowie. Bowie took Iggy Pop under his wing after the breakup of the Stooges and was instrumental in the production of many Iggy Pop hits. Iggy Pop’s eighteenth album “Free” was released in September 2019.
Film and television
Thanks to his strong personality and charismatic charisma, Iggy Pop is also in demand as an actor and presenter. In 1986, he appeared in the legendary punk film “Sid and Nacy,” and in 2003 he had a role in Jim Jarmusch’s black-and-white film “Coffeea and Cigarettes. On the British radio station BBC Radio 6 Music, the “Godfather of Punk” hosts the program “Iggy Confidential” every Friday evening.
Iggy Pop has received many awards. In 2013, he was named an Officier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. This award is given exclusively to people who have distinguished themselves through their artistic work. In 2019, he received two lifetime achievement awards, including a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Both “Raw Power” and “Lust for life” were voted top albums by music magazine Creem.
