Iggy and the stooges* iggy pop & the stooges - raw power


Drawing inspiration from the most aggressively carnal moments of Mick Jagger, Elvis Presley and Jim Morrison, Iggy Pop's force-of-nature vocals with the Stooges invented the snarling style that came to define punk rock. "I got the idea of the voice as an irritant from Mick Jagger," Iggy told Rolling Stone . "When he sang, it was the opposite of nice." But Iggy wasn't all about provocation: In his more restrained post-Stooges work — on songs from the David Bowie-produced The Passenger to his 1990 hit single "Candy" — he let his baritone relax into a louche, affecting croon. "Iggy has a very manly voice, very sexual, very emotional, very fierce, very wry — a lot of humor," says the Pretenders' Chrissie Hynde. "He was just like a wild colt, and he grew into a wild stallion."

Apparently written by roadie Jos Grain, the Iggy rider is peppered with witty gems, tasteless asides , and typos. For example, in describing how Iggy's dressing room should be made to "look less like a typical rock & roll dressing room," the rider suggests that promoters "just let someone loose with a little bit of artistic flair...Er, do you know any homosexuals?" Explaining the need for two heavy duty fans, Grain notes, "So that I can wear a scarf and pretend to be in a Bon Jovi video."
