5 Reviews
In a career that begun 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. In this solid biography Joe Ambrose does full justice to the original spirit of Iggy Pop through a rich and revealing selection of interviews, offering many shrewd insights into the personality of a man whose own comments often seem more confused than anarchic.
