Iggy & Bowie were buddies. He's also is in the movie SUCK with Alice Cooper
James Osterberg (nom de rock: Iggy Pop) reinvented what the idea of what the frontman could be: wild, dangerous, sexy, possibly psychotic. He broke down the barrier between audience and performer (something acolyte Nick Cave does as well) and was one of the first singers to deliberately piss off his fans. He is one of rock's great survivors. If you don't have the Stooges albums and his first two solo records, stop reading and go get them. Now. This 2-CD collection starts with The Stooges and ends in the early '00s and the trip is initially furious and exciting, with some of the most intense rock ever made. It gets a little weird and then it gets really depressing when Pop hits the 80s. Much of his solo work is terrible: badly produced, dumb without being fun, poorly written and played. The second disc documents this slow slide to mediocrity and is redeemed by a few decent songs from the Bowie-produced "Blah Blah Blah" and two 90s duets, "Candy" (with Kate Pierson of the B-52s) and his campy Cole Porter cover with Debbie Harry. There's really no reason for a fan to own this. So Disc 1: 5 stars. Disc 2: 2.5. Again, go buy "The Stooges," Fun House," "Raw Power," "The Idiot," and "Lust for Life." They are absolutely essential.
