Iggy Pop

Data de nascimento: 21. Abril 1947
Outros nomes: იგი პოპი, Իգգի Փոփ

Iggy Pop, nome artístico de James Newell Osterberg , é um músico de rock dos Estados Unidos, além de ator ocasional.

Em meados dos anos 60, ele tocou bateria num grupo de garotos da sua escola, The Iguanas. O nome artístico, aliás, surgiu devido o nome da primeira música da banda colegial. Em 1969, surgia o The Stooges, com Ron Asheton na guitarra, Scott Asheton na bateria e Dave Alexander no baixo , banda que liderou durante cinco anos. Ao fim da banda, Iggy Pop decidiu partir para carreira solo.

Em 1977, recebeu a ajuda de seu amigo David Bowie para produzir seus dois primeiros álbuns solo: The Idiot, em março, e Lust for Life, em setembro. O primeiro disco incluiu a música "China Girl", que mais tarde seria sucesso na voz de Bowie no álbum Let's Dance, de 1983. Wikipedia

Citações Iggy Pop

„Eu queria que a música saísse do alto-falante e te agarrasse pela garganta e batesse a tua cabeça contra a parede e basicamente te matasse“

—  Iggy Pop

I wanted the music to come out of the speakers and just grab you by the throat and just knock your head against the wall and just basically kill you.

„He was a person of affairs, in the worldly sense, with a lot of choices laid out on his smorgasbord. I had no choices whatsoever. I was a pariah. But a very fortunate one, in that he saw something worthwhile in me, and he made me two terrific records. He gave me the break I needed to continue living life. He is my benefactor.“

—  Iggy Pop

On his relations with David Bowie
Rolling Stone interview (2003)
Contexto: I used to catch myself — maybe we'd be having dinner with the future king of Spain, and I'd be grumpy, like, "What are we doing here, hanging out with these swells?" And then, right away, I'd realize, "Dude, you're jealous." It got very hard on a certain level. He was a person of affairs, in the worldly sense, with a lot of choices laid out on his smorgasbord. I had no choices whatsoever. I was a pariah. But a very fortunate one, in that he saw something worthwhile in me, and he made me two terrific records. He gave me the break I needed to continue living life. He is my benefactor.

„I have a hot memory, but I know I've forgotten many things, too, just squashed things in favor of survival. The only thing missing from my life right now is what I've got, and it's peace. I have more than I ever had … and not as much as I would like.“

—  Iggy Pop

Rolling Stone interview (2003)
Contexto: Have you ever noticed that a small creature, like a mouse or a mole, when faced with danger, they just stop? I've had big, long periods in my life when I was a lot like that. I just froze. It was not fun, but it was what I thought I had to do. And that's how I lived, pretty much, at one time. I have a hot memory, but I know I've forgotten many things, too, just squashed things in favor of survival. The only thing missing from my life right now is what I've got, and it's peace. I have more than I ever had... and not as much as I would like.

„As society has changed, what had formerly been unacceptable has become colorful, even the broken-glass thing.“

—  Iggy Pop

On his stage performances, including acts where he would crawl and roll on broken glass.
Rolling Stone interview (2003)
Contexto: As society has changed, what had formerly been unacceptable has become colorful, even the broken-glass thing. Although, you know, there's an archetypal element to that anyway.... It's about the blood... The Christians used that riff with Christ. What did Christ really do? He hung out with hard-drinking fishermen. And when they asked him, "Why are you hanging out with prostitutes and fishermen?" he said, "Because they need me." What a line, you know? But what your martial society really wants is blood. We need some blood. We need some suffering. Like, the individual must suffer for the good of the whole. I toy around with that. Early on, I wasn't looking at Jesus Christ, saying to myself, "What an angle." I wasn't trying to be Christ-y. But, after all, on one level, this is showbiz.

„I've never had any sort of macho revulsion of fags, but Bowie and I — never, never, never, never. Everybody would think that, but I never saw him be that way anyway.“

—  Iggy Pop

On rumours that he and Bowie were lovers.
Rolling Stone interview (2003)
Contexto: I've never had any sort of macho revulsion of fags, but Bowie and I — never, never, never, never. Everybody would think that, but I never saw him be that way anyway. I'll tell you this. That guy got more p-u-s-s-y. I couldn't believe it. Talk about a bitch magnet. Damn! Actresses, heiresses, waitresses, skateresses. And me? I was just left holding my dick most of the time. I had this short haircut, and I looked like a duck. But I got lucky sometimes. I got a good song out of a girl I was knocking off at the time, and it became "China Girl."

„Everybody's a little more worldly now, and there's more exposure to things. When I made Fun House, back in 1970, nobody wanted to interview me. It was wonderful.“

—  Iggy Pop

Interview interview (1999)
Contexto: Everybody's a little more worldly now, and there's more exposure to things. When I made Fun House, back in 1970, nobody wanted to interview me. It was wonderful. I was like one of those little white things you find living under rocks, that every once in a while people pull up by mistake and go, "aagh!" But now everybody has a video camera, and that may have changed the nature of "the message from below," as it were.

„Before I kick it I want to be able to carry a tune in a living room if called upon. Of course, mine come out all dark and twisted and weird.“

—  Iggy Pop

Interview interview (1999)
Contexto: You know, I'm fifty-two now and I call myself a singer. Before I kick it I want to be able to carry a tune in a living room if called upon. Of course, mine come out all dark and twisted and weird.

„I wore that because it makes me look beautiful. I stare at myself in the mirror and I think, "Wow, I'm really great-looking." … I think I'm the greatest, anyway.“

„I feel like God peed on all my enemies. For a long time I was very bitter that the people who controlled the means of anybody ever hearing my songs were never gonna play them.“

—  Iggy Pop

Interview interview (1999)
Contexto: I feel like God peed on all my enemies. For a long time I was very bitter that the people who controlled the means of anybody ever hearing my songs were never gonna play them. They only favored music that I specifically and particularly hated, and I wanted them dead. Suddenly, there was another avenue. I started hearing my stuff coming out of bars and then it started to happen little by little — a movie song here or a TV ad there.
