Uncle Ignatius, Eligible for Social Security Benefits
The redoubtable BLCKDGRD informs us that the iconic Iggy Pop is of retirement age. Of course, the thought of Herr Pop retiring is repugnant to me. Thanks for decades of fantastic music, and for inspiring countless other musicians to kick ass, birfday boy. Perhaps my all time favorite Iggy song is Search and Destroy, originally recorded with the Stooges: Here's a funny video of some square who was probably younger at the time than Iggy is now announcing a Stooges concert: As far as later era Iggy goes, I have to admit that I've always found the song Pumping for Jill, from 1981's "Party" album, hilarious. The weird synth solo in the middle of the song never fails to crack me up: If you're thinking of sending Iggy a gift, I hear he can use shirts.
