Description by OLDIES.com:

The first definitive biography of the outrageous "Godfather of Punk".

In a career that began in the late Sixties Iggy Pop always set out to shock. But his attention-grabbing tactics - including self-mutilation - always disguised a musician and artist more complex than the image suggested.

If Pop usually looked ready to press the self-destruct button at any minute, he also lived a life of extreme hedonism and indulgence. And when he finally received accolades from the cultural establishment, he still managed to stay looking very dangerous. From the bedrooms of the most beautiful women in the world to sleeping rough, Iggy Pop's roller-coaster story is one of wild creativity, appalling degradation...and eventual salvation.

Joe Ambrose, author of the notorious Moshpit Culture, tackles the life of Iggy Pop - original punk, outrageous rocker and shrewd businessman - with style and insight. Full of interviews with those who know Pop best, this book is an exhilarating and unsettling exploration of the life and times of a truly wild man.

Product Description:

Author Joe Ambrose does full justice to the original spirit of Iggy Pop, through a rich and revealing selection of interviews. Features black and white photos.
