The Godfather of Punk was born 70 years ago today, in Ypsilanti, MI. Happy Birthday, Iggy Pop! Aka James Newell Osterberg, Jr., Iggy grew up in Ann Arbor and was vastly influential on the punk scenes that developed in New York and London in the 70’s. The Stooges’ Raw Power is one of the heaviest and most energetic albums I’ve ever heard.
If you dig Iggy, check out the documentary Gimme Danger, based on his biography and currently available on Amazon Prime.
