Iggy Pop is an American singer, songwriter, musician, and actor. Though considered an innovator of punk rock, Iggy’s music has encompassed a number of styles over the years.
Iggy earned his nickname ‘Iggy’ in high school. During which time he served as drummer for local blues band The Iguanas. He is vocalist of influential protopunk band The Stooges (Iggy and the other surviving members of the group reunited in 2003). Iggy has revelled, since the late 1960s, in his outrageous and unpredictable stage antics.
Iggy Pop has recorded a number of well-known songs, including “Lust for Life”, “Real Wild Child”, “Candy” (a duet with Kate Pierson of The B-52’s), “China Girl”, “Nightclubbing”, “Search and Destroy”, and “The Passenger”.
Iggy’s 2003 album Skull Ring featured collaborators Sum 41, Green Day, Peaches, and The Trolls, as well as Ron and Scott Asheton, reuniting the three surviving founding members of The Stooges for the first time since 1974.
In January 2020, Pop received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. In December 2020, Iggy featured on a rework of Elvis Costello’s song “No Flag” from Costello’s 2020 album Hey Clockface. The song is a re-recording, with Pop providing the vocals, translated to French for this version.
He has appeared in sixteen movies and featured in five television series. He has also been the subject of four rockumentaries and recorded songs for eighteen soundtracks.
