Iggy Pop (aka James Osterberg of Ann Arbor) is one of rock music’s most original artists, his remarkable longevity defying the popular perception of him as the most excessive and self-destructive musician of his generation. Today, the walking miracle that is Iggy Pop continues to record, perform, and shock. In The Complete Iggy Pop, music journalist Richard Adams covers the 18 studio albums—including commentary on every song, plus background information on the recording process—the David Bowie collaborations, the live albums, the semi-official albums, and the reissues of early material. All the tours and known concert dates are also recorded, as wellas videos, films, TV appearances, and the re-formation of his seminal proto-punk band, the Stooges. It is an indispensable guide to music’s most enduring misfit.
