Iggy Pop: Coming Through Slaughter

Edwin Pouncey, The Wire, November 1999

Where lesser rock gods have become overweight and obsolete, Iggy Pop endures. In Miami, prompted by the bitter-sweet musings of his 13th album, he reflects on the self-destructive brilliance of The Stooges, high times with Bowie in Berlin, and his lean later years. Words: Edwin Pouncey.
