There’s a bit of a meme going around showing a time line of Iggy Pop shirtless over the years. It’s pretty amazing and although I only like a few early Iggy songs you have to respect the man on some level. Take a look at the full Iggy Pop Shirtless Aging Timeline here: buzzfeed.com/iggy-pop-shirtless-aging
“As much as I want to unsee the last few photos, you have to admit that for 40 years (40!!!!) of being shirtless on stage, he could have looked a lot worse much sooner. He is 63 years old now. Just gotta keep that in mind.” – dak1038
I’m not a “love anything Iggy ever did” kind of fan. I love the same Iggy and the Stooges songs every hipster goes for such as I Wanna Be Your Dog and Gimme Danger. If by some bizzare chance you don’t know those two song do yourself a favor and click the titles and listen to some greatness. Today’s video shows you there was a time it was perfectly acceptable to be high on cocaine and on television. I remember watching an interview with Iggy in the 90’s where he went off on David Crosby for being fat, eating meat and being “establishment”. All press is good press.
One of the golden rules of modern times is: Never ever leave stuff in a truck unattended. Every first of the month in any city you see moving vans guarded by college girls as their boyfriends haul Ikea crap up into apartments. If they all know this rule why didn’t The Stooges management? Nevertheless we can’t blame them; it’s the dirty thieves that we have to be pissed off at. Let’s hope they are dumb enough to try and hock the gear on eBay because one thing the management did right was record all the serial numbers. Here’s the story:
IGGY AND THE STOOGES
EQUIPMENT STOLEN ON AUGUST 4, 2008
OUTSIDE THE EMBASSY SUITES HOTEL
208 SAINT ANTOINE OUEST,
MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA
All equipment was in a rented penske 15 foot yellow truck with u.s. (michigan) license plate number AC46493 parked immediately outside the hotel, the theft had to have happened in the morning, between 6:30 and 7:30 am – truck and all gear stolen.
if anyone has information, ANY INFORMATION! Please, please, PLEASE as soon as possible contact Eric Fischer at: firstname.lastname@example.org, cell phone: +1 646 932 1907
By the amount of “please’s” above, I’d say Eric is in deep shite. I know Montreal has a big biker community so maybe they can help considering they probably agree with Iggy’s demeanor. Then again… maybe they pulled this heist off. Let’s hope they catch whoever did it.
