Lust for Life – Iggy Pop and the Stooges



This post is for the Father of Punk Rock, with Motor City Soul and stage antics that made the shows interesting. Iggy Pop is one of my all time rock star heros. The Stooges flipped American Rock and Roll on its head and they still blow my mind. Songs like “Lust for Life” with its simple drumbeat and a down beat bass that goes on an on, don’t for get that tambourine. The song “The Passenger” makes me feel like getting on the road with my wife and just go, see life through a car window.  Let not forget “Tonight” with David Bowie singing backup vocals. Over the years both The Thin White duke and Iggy would sing and write lyrics for each other, many became major hits.

I have seen Iggy perform twice live, a small bar in Santa Barbara and at the Orpheum Theatre in San Francisco.

I’m giving a shout out to Iggy the Ambassador for Record Store Day April 21 2021. Support your local record stores tomorrow and all year.
