  Iggy Pop - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Pop was the lead singer of The Stooges, a late 1960s/early 1970s band that was highly influential in the development of hard rock.
The band was composed of Pop on vocals, Ron Asheton on guitar, Asheton's brother Scott on drums, and Dave Alexander on bass.
Pop earned a place in punk rock history by popularizing many of the stage routines that are now commonplace among musicians: he was among the first to stage dive and "crowd walk," for example.

Iggy Pop was born as James Jewel Osterburg on April 21, 1947 in Muskegon, Michigan.
He took the name "Iggy Pop" at the age of 19 after beginning his career in music: Iggy after The Iguanas (his first band) and Pop after Jim Popp, a local junkie.
Pop would later go solo, working with such talent as David Bowie (the husband of Trek actor Iman) before scoring a US Top 40 hit in a 1991 duet with the B-52's Kate Pierson and the song "Candy".

 Iggy Pop: The Godfather of Punk Takes No Prisoners at Irving Plaza, 11/5/99 (NY Rock Concert Review)
As the reigning Godfather of Punk, Iggy Pop has single-handedly defined the genre with an "in your face" gonzo style revue and musical stance bucking the trends for the last thirty years.
Stage diving into the muck and mire of the frenzied and hungry crowd during "I Wanna Be Your Dog," and taunting the crowd in shamanic tirades of cathartic proportions, performer and audience became one.
Pushing the envelope of time and its limits on the body's physical well being, Pop's performance was tireless, honest and inspirational, rare in an age of poseurs and one-hit wonders.

Iggy's career moved into the 1990s when he signed with Virgin Records and released Brick By Brick (1990), an album that found some mainstream success with his first Top 40 hit, "Candy." The two albums following Brick By Brick were American Caesar (1993) and Naughty Little Doggie (1996).
In retrospect, despite his seemingly elusive commercial success over the years, the music of Iggy Pop has persistently and subliminally infiltrated the mainstream musical core, as well as a powerful inspiration for countless musicians.
Iggy Pop is now, genuinely, being discovered by a whole new generation.

But the outbreak of Iggy demonstrated to be a survivor, forging to a solo very long race of alive ends.

Iggy Pop has surprisingly good vocals, the lyrics are not as simple as one would have like thought they would be.
Iggy Pop is an iconic figure, somewhat on the margins of rock `n roll and the entertainment industry, a cult figure, a charismatic whirling dervish messiah, and, miraculously, a long term survivor of rock `n roll excess.
Iggy Pop was/is also the lead singer and de facto leader of the Stooges, a band now understood to be as seminal as the Velvet Underground for punk rock and other forms of modern music.

 Official Ticketmaster site. Iggy Pop tickets, dates
Pop enlisted guitarist James Williamson (who was briefly a second guitarist for the Stooges before their breakup), and after the pair signed to Bowie's Mainman management company and relocated to England, eventually reunited with the Asheton brothers (with Ron moving from the six-string to the bass).
Pop's plan for the Stooges' third release overall would be to create a record that would be so over the top sonically that it would actually hurt you when it poured out of the speakers.
By 1974, Pop and most of the Stooges were strung out again on drugs, and with their star fading, the band called it quits for a second (and final) time.

Pop's pop leanings pop up with "Nightclubbing," "China Girl," and "Lust for Life," tracks in which the guitars are toned down a notch and Iggy exhibits a slightly more mellow side.
Iggy's version, in my opinion, is far superior to Bowie's (and it was a big hit for Bowie years after the song was written).
Iggy Pop changed his name from James Osterberg when he found out he was too dumb to spell it correctly.

It's as if Iggy and the Band were writing their obit with the greatest, "the most nihilistic, depraved, desperate (meaning: if this buncha songs don't strike your fancy, then, nothing -- includin' everything we have ever done -- will: just turn away, and let us burn-out with our engines full blast.
Currently, Iggy is on tour with his new band to promote his newest disc (the only other release is the French "Metallic K.O." -- a statement of existence rather than a record.
The brutal realities of Iggy's existence (and the raw candor of his statements therein) now seem to be eloquently adaptable to the thin white duke's constant attempts at creating "new music, night and day".

However, it does confirm that Iggy Pop can still kick up a fuss with the best of them even if the end result isn't as legendary as the man who produced it.
Iggy's own production fails to lift it out of the nu-metal quagmire - sometimes the perfectly executed power chords and unimaginative guitar licks feel every bit as raw and dangerous as Bowie's Tin Machine farrago.

There's no way Saf is going to splash out on the book of Iggy photos by Mick Rock (being an underground film star and professional belly-dancer doesn't pay so well), so she decided to take a look for free at some of the pics from the book on show at the Scala.
And the Scala are holding some kind of job interview with a young man with an ironic fin hairstyle the whole time, right under Iggy's unwavering gaze.
