Iggy Pop

~ Person

Annotation

Born in Michigan as James Newell June Osterberg, Iggy Pop is also known as the Godfather of Punk and his frenzied stage performances have inspired countless others. He emerged with the four-piece garage band, the Stooges, but due to Pop's drug addiction, they broke up. Pop went on to collaborate with David Bowie, notably on Bowie's hit 'China Girl'. Aside from music, he has acted in a number of films. Curt Wild (Ewan McGregor) in the film Velvet Goldmine is partially based on Iggy Pop.

James Newell Osterberg, Jr., known professionally as Iggy Pop (/ˈɪɡi pɒp/; born April 21, 1947), is an American singer-songwriter, musician and actor. He was the vocalist of influential proto-punk band The Stooges, who reunited in 2003, and is well known for his outrageous and unpredictable stage antics.

Pop's music has encompassed a number of styles over the course of his career, including garage rock, punk rock, hard rock, art rock, new wave, jazz and blues. Though his popularity has fluctuated through the years, many of Pop's songs have become well-known, including "Lust for Life", "The Passenger", "Real Wild Child (Wild One)", "Candy" (a duet with Kate Pierson of The B-52's), "China Girl", "Nightclubbing", "Search and Destroy" and "I Wanna Be Your Dog".

In 2010, The Stooges were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
