Iggy Pop, Mr Detroit city, it’s yr birthday. I celebrate your wit; energy, style, attitude and staying (raw) power.
You’ve given us some of the finest songs ever made, pretty much invented punk singlehandedly (something that you refute) and
you have a lot of integrity (apart from a certain car insurance commercial)… Ever the walking contradiction… I loves ya.
Provocateur, actor, friend of Bowie and Lou, guest star on some brilliant recent records (Death Valley Girls and Underworld, anyone?) Iggy will never be second- guessed.
Even your speaking voice is coooool, like cigars and a really refined chocolate. Also, Iggy Confidential on 6Music is a great radio show, playing loads of different genres. Happy birthday, Jimmy!
