James Newell Osterberg Jr. aka Iggy Pop is an American singer, songwriter, musician, producer and actor born 1947 in Muskegon, Michigan. In 1968 Iggy formed The Psychedelic Stooges with Ron and Scott Asheton and Dave Alexander. The Stooges went on to make several classic proto-punk albums with the charismatic Iggy up-front. He met David Bowie in 1975 starting a lasting collaboration which came to fruition with Pop's first solo album The Idiot released in 1977. Bowie produced and played on The Idiot and the follow-up Lust For Life, both of which are excellent and Iggy's best work outside The Stooges. Kill City is also an excellent album.
