The Godfather of punk, Iggy Pop is one of the most influential and iconic performers of all time. Iggy Pop was the vocalist of proto-punk group The Stooges who formed in 1967.
Pop is known for his outrageous confrontational life-performances which often involved self-mutilation and indecent exposure. Though Pop never achieved chart topping success he remains a prominent culture icon while his songs I Wanna Be Your Dog and Search and Destroy are popular cult classics.
From The Stooges to collaborating with David Bowie, Iggy Pop inspired a genre and revolutionised the parameters of the term 'on-stage entertainment'.
