James Newell Osterberg Jr. (born April 21, 1947), better known as Iggy Pop, is an American musician, singer, songwriter, record producer, and actor. Iggy Pop_sentence_0

Designated the "Godfather of Punk", he was the vocalist and lyricist of influential proto-punk band The Stooges, who were formed in 1967 and have disbanded and reunited multiple times since. Iggy Pop_sentence_1

Initially playing a raw, primitive style of rock and roll, the Stooges sold few records in their original incarnation and gained a reputation for their confrontational performances, which often involved acts of self-mutilation by Pop. Iggy Pop_sentence_2

He had a long collaborative and personal friendship with David Bowie over the course of his career, beginning with the Stooges' album Raw Power in 1973. Iggy Pop_sentence_3

With both musicians having relocated to West Berlin to wean themselves off their respective drug addictions, Pop began his solo career by collaborating with Bowie on the 1977 albums The Idiot and Lust for Life with Pop usually contributing the lyrics. Iggy Pop_sentence_4

Throughout his career, Pop is well known for his outrageous and unpredictable stage antics, poetic lyrics and distinctive voice. Iggy Pop_sentence_5

He was one of the first performers to do a stage-dive and popularized the activity. Iggy Pop_sentence_6

Pop, who traditionally (but not exclusively) performs bare-chested, also performed such stage theatrics as rolling around in broken glass and exposing himself to the crowd. Iggy Pop_sentence_7

Pop's music has encompassed a number of styles over the course of his career, including garage rock, punk rock, hard rock, heavy metal, art rock, new wave, jazz, blues, and electronic. Iggy Pop_sentence_8

Though his popularity has fluctuated through the years, many of Pop's songs have become well known, including "Search and Destroy" and "I Wanna Be Your Dog" by the Stooges, and his solo hits "Lust for Life", "The Passenger" and "Real Wild Child (Wild One)". Iggy Pop_sentence_9

In 1990, he recorded his first and only Top 40 U.S. hit, "Candy", a duet with B-52's singer Kate Pierson. Iggy Pop_sentence_10

Pop's song "China Girl" became more widely known when it was re-recorded by co-writer Bowie, who released it as the second single from his most commercially successful album, Let's Dance (1983). Iggy Pop_sentence_11

The UK single release of Bowie's version reached No. Iggy Pop_sentence_12

2 for one week on June 14, 1983, while the US release reached No. Iggy Pop_sentence_13

10. Iggy Pop_sentence_14

Bowie re-recorded and performed many of Pop's songs throughout his career. Iggy Pop_sentence_15

Although Pop has had limited commercial success, he has remained both a culture icon and a significant influence on a wide range of musicians in numerous genres. Iggy Pop_sentence_16

The Stooges' album Raw Power has proved an influence on artists such as Sex Pistols, the Smiths, the Sisters of Mercy, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Nirvana. Iggy Pop_sentence_17

His solo album The Idiot has been cited as a major influence on a number of post-punk, electronic and industrial artists including Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails and Joy Division, and was described by Siouxsie Sioux as a "re-affirmation that our suspicions were true: the man is a genius." Iggy Pop_sentence_18

He was inducted as part of the Stooges into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010. Iggy Pop_sentence_19

In January 2020, Pop received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Iggy Pop_sentence_20

Early life Iggy Pop_section_0

Pop was born James Newell Osterberg Jr. in Muskegon, Michigan, on April 21, 1947, the son of Louella (née Christensen; 1917–1996) and James Newell Osterberg Sr. (1921–2007), a former high school English teacher and baseball coach at Fordson High School in Dearborn, Michigan. Iggy Pop_sentence_21

He is of English, German and Irish descent on his father's side, and Danish and Norwegian ancestry on his mother's side. Iggy Pop_sentence_22

His father was adopted by a Swedish-American nurse surnamed Osterberg. Iggy Pop_sentence_23

Pop was raised in a trailer park in Ypsilanti, Michigan. Iggy Pop_sentence_24

In a 2007 Rolling Stone interview, Pop explained his relationship with his parents and their contribution to his music: Iggy Pop_sentence_25

Music career Iggy Pop_section_1

Early days: 1960–1967 Iggy Pop_section_2

Osterberg began his music career as a drummer in various high school bands in Ann Arbor, Michigan, including The Iguanas, who cut several records such as Bo Diddley's "Mona" in 1965. Iggy Pop_sentence_26

His later stage name, Iggy, is derived from the Iguanas. Iggy Pop_sentence_27

After exploring local blues-style bands such as the Prime Movers (with brothers Dan and Michael Erlewine), he eventually dropped out of the University of Michigan and moved to Chicago to learn more about blues. Iggy Pop_sentence_28

While in Chicago, he played drums in blues clubs, helped by Sam Lay (formerly of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band) who shared his connections with Pop. Iggy Pop_sentence_29

Inspired by Chicago blues as well as bands like The Sonics, MC5 and The Doors, he formed the Psychedelic Stooges and began calling himself Iggy. Iggy Pop_sentence_30

The band was composed of Pop on vocals, Ron Asheton on guitar, Asheton's brother Scott on drums, and Dave Alexander on bass. Iggy Pop_sentence_31

Their first show was played at a Halloween party at a house in Detroit, Michigan. Iggy Pop_sentence_32

Members of the MC5 were also in attendance. Iggy Pop_sentence_33

The Stooges era: 1968–1974 Iggy Pop_section_3

The seeds of Pop's stage persona were sown when he saw the Doors perform in 1967 at the University of Michigan and was amazed by the stage antics and antagonism displayed by singer Jim Morrison. Iggy Pop_sentence_34

Morrison's extreme behavior, while performing in a popular band, inspired the young Pop to push the boundaries of stage performance. Iggy Pop_sentence_35

Other influences on Pop's vocals and persona were Mick Jagger and James Brown. Iggy Pop_sentence_36

In addition to Jim Morrison and The Doors' influence on the band, Pop also attributes the Stooges getting jump started after seeing an all-girls rock band from Princeton, New Jersey, called The Untouchable. Iggy Pop_sentence_37

In a 1995 interview with Bust, he relates: Iggy Pop_sentence_38

In 1968, one year after their live debut and now dubbed the Psychedelic Stooges, the band signed with Elektra Records, again following in the footsteps of The Doors, who were Elektra's biggest act at the time (according to Pop, guitarist Ron Asheton called Moe Howard to see if it was all right to call the band "The Stooges", to which Howard responded by merely saying "I don't care what they call themselves, as long as they're not The Three Stooges!" Iggy Pop_sentence_39

and hung up the phone). Iggy Pop_sentence_40

Pop himself told the story in the 2016 Jim Jarmusch documentary film about The Stooges, Gimme Danger. Iggy Pop_sentence_41

The Stooges' first album The Stooges, (on which Pop was credited as "Iggy Stooge"), was produced by John Cale in New York in 1969. Iggy Pop_sentence_42

Both it and the follow-up, Fun House produced by Don Gallucci in Los Angeles in 1970, sold poorly. Iggy Pop_sentence_43

Though the release of Fun House did not receive the recognition it expected, it was later ranked No. Iggy Pop_sentence_44

191 in Rolling Stone's '500 Greatest Albums of All Time' in 2003. Iggy Pop_sentence_45

Shortly after the release of Fun House, the group disbanded because of Pop's worsening heroin addiction. Iggy Pop_sentence_46

In 1971, without a record deal, the Stooges kept performing in small clubs with a 5-piece line-up that included both Ron Asheton and James Williamson on guitars and Jimmy Recca on bass, Pop having fired Dave Alexander the previous year when he turned up for a gig unable to play because of his chronic alcoholism (he died in 1975). Iggy Pop_sentence_47

That year Pop and David Bowie met at Max's Kansas City, a nightclub and restaurant in New York City. Iggy Pop_sentence_48

Pop's career received a boost from his relationship with Bowie when Bowie decided in 1972 to produce an album with him in England. Iggy Pop_sentence_49

With Williamson signed on as guitarist, the search began for a rhythm section. Iggy Pop_sentence_50

However, since neither Pop nor Williamson were satisfied with any players in England, they decided to re-unite the Stooges. Iggy Pop_sentence_51

Ron Asheton grudgingly moved from guitar to bass. Iggy Pop_sentence_52

The recording sessions produced the rock landmark Raw Power. Iggy Pop_sentence_53

After its release Scott Thurston was added to the band on keyboards/electric piano and Bowie continued his support, but Pop's drug problem persisted. Iggy Pop_sentence_54

The Stooges' last show in 1974 ended in a fight between the band and a group of bikers, documented on the album Metallic K.O. Iggy Pop_sentence_55

Drug abuse stalled his career again for several years. Iggy Pop_sentence_56

Bowie and Berlin: 1976–1978 Iggy Pop_section_4

After the Stooges' second breakup, Pop made recordings with James Williamson, but these were not released until 1977 (as Kill City, credited jointly to Pop and Williamson). Iggy Pop_sentence_57

Pop was unable to control his drug use and checked himself into a mental institution, the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute, to try to clean up. Iggy Pop_sentence_58

Bowie was one of his few visitors there, and he continued to support his friend and collaborator. Iggy Pop_sentence_59

In 1976, Bowie took him along as his companion on the Station to Station tour. Iggy Pop_sentence_60

This was Pop's first exposure to large-scale professional touring and he was impressed, particularly with Bowie's work ethic. Iggy Pop_sentence_61

Following a March 21, 1976 show, Bowie and Pop were arrested together for marijuana possession in Rochester, New York, although charges were later dropped. Iggy Pop_sentence_62

Bowie and Pop relocated to West Berlin to wean themselves off their respective drug addictions. Iggy Pop_sentence_63

"Living in a Berlin apartment with Bowie and his friends was interesting…" Pop recalled. Iggy Pop_sentence_64

"The big event of the week was Thursday night. Iggy Pop_sentence_65

Anyone who was still alive and able to crawl to the sofa would watch Starsky & Hutch." Iggy Pop_sentence_66

In 1977, Pop signed with RCA Records. Iggy Pop_sentence_67

Bowie helped write and produce The Idiot and Lust for Life, Pop's two most acclaimed albums as a solo artist, the latter featuring one of his best-known songs, "The Passenger". Iggy Pop_sentence_68

Lust for Life featured another team of brothers, Hunt and Tony Fox Sales, sons of comedian Soupy Sales. Iggy Pop_sentence_69

Among the songs Bowie and Pop wrote together were "China Girl", "Tonight", and "Sister Midnight", all of which Bowie performed on his own albums later (the last being recorded with different lyrics as "Red Money" on Lodger). Iggy Pop_sentence_70

Bowie also played keyboards in Pop's live performances, some of which are featured on the album TV Eye Live in 1978. Iggy Pop_sentence_71

In return, Pop contributed backing vocals on Bowie's Low. Iggy Pop_sentence_72

Arista albums: 1979–1981 Iggy Pop_section_5

Pop had grown dissatisfied with RCA, later admitting that he had made TV Eye Live as a quick way of fulfilling his three-album RCA contract. Iggy Pop_sentence_73

He moved to Arista Records, under whose banner he released New Values in 1979. Iggy Pop_sentence_74

This album was something of a Stooges reunion, with James Williamson producing and latter-day Stooge Scott Thurston playing guitar and keyboards. Iggy Pop_sentence_75

Not surprisingly, the album's style harkened back to the guitar sound of the Stooges. Iggy Pop_sentence_76

New Values was not a commercial success in the U.S., but has since been highly regarded by critics. Iggy Pop_sentence_77

The album was moderately successful in Australia and New Zealand, however, and this led to Pop's first visit there to promote it. Iggy Pop_sentence_78

While in Melbourne, he made a memorable appearance on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's nationwide show Countdown. Iggy Pop_sentence_79

During his anarchic performance of "I'm Bored", Pop made no attempt to conceal the fact that he was lip-synching (shoving the microphone down his pants at one point), and he even tried to grab the teenage girls in the audience. Iggy Pop_sentence_80

He was also interviewed by host Molly Meldrum, an exchange which was frequently punctuated by the singer jumping up and down on his chair and making loud exclamations of "G'day mate" in a mock Australian accent. Iggy Pop_sentence_81

His Countdown appearance is generally considered one of the highlights of the show's history and it cemented his popularity with Australian punk fans; since then he has often toured there. Iggy Pop_sentence_82

While visiting New Zealand, Pop recorded a music video for "I'm Bored", and attended a record company function where he appeared to slap a woman and throw wine over a photographer. Iggy Pop_sentence_83

While in Australia, Pop was also the guest on a live late-night commercial TV interview show on the Ten Network. Iggy Pop_sentence_84

It is not known whether a recording of this interview exists, but the famous Countdown appearance has often been re-screened in Australia. Iggy Pop_sentence_85

During the recording of Soldier (1980), Pop and David Bowie argued with Williamson over various aspects of the project. Iggy Pop_sentence_86

Williamson recalling "I was not at all happy with a number of aspects of that record including the band, the material and the recording facilities. Iggy Pop_sentence_87

So I was unhappy in general and vice versa". Iggy Pop_sentence_88

Williamson left the project. Iggy Pop_sentence_89

Bowie appeared on the song "Play it Safe", performing backing vocals with the group Simple Minds. Iggy Pop_sentence_90

The album and its follow-up Party (1981) were both commercial failures, and Pop was dropped from Arista. Iggy Pop_sentence_91

His drug habit varied in intensity during this time, but persisted. Iggy Pop_sentence_92

1980s Iggy Pop_section_6

In 1980, Pop published his autobiography I Need More, co-written with Anne Wehner, an Ann Arbor arts patron. Iggy Pop_sentence_93

The book, which includes a selection of black and white photographs, featured a foreword by Andy Warhol. Iggy Pop_sentence_94

Warhol wrote that he met Pop when he was Jim Osterberg, at the Ann Arbor Film Festival in 1966. Iggy Pop_sentence_95

"I don't know why he hasn't made it really big," Warhol wrote. Iggy Pop_sentence_96

"He is so good." Iggy Pop_sentence_97

The 1982 album Zombie Birdhouse on Chris Stein's Animal label, with Stein himself producing, was no more commercially successful than his Arista works. Iggy Pop_sentence_98

In 1983, Pop's fortunes changed when David Bowie recorded a cover of the song "China Girl". Iggy Pop_sentence_99

The song had originally appeared on The Idiot, and was a major hit on Bowie's blockbuster Let's Dance album. Iggy Pop_sentence_100

As co-writer of the song, Pop received substantial royalties. Iggy Pop_sentence_101

On Tonight in 1984, Bowie recorded five more of their co-written songs (2 from Lust for Life, 1 from New Values, and 2 new songs), assuring Pop financial security, at least for the short term. Iggy Pop_sentence_102

The support from Bowie enabled Pop to take a three-year break, during which he overcame his resurgent heroin addiction and took acting classes. Iggy Pop_sentence_103

Additionally, Pop contributed the title song to the 1984 film Repo Man (with Steve Jones, previously of the Sex Pistols, on guitar, and Nigel Harrison and Clem Burke, both of Blondie on bass and drums) as well as an instrumental called "Repo Man Theme" that was played during the opening credits. Iggy Pop_sentence_104

In 1985, Pop recorded some demos with Jones. Iggy Pop_sentence_105

He played these demos for Bowie, who was sufficiently impressed to offer to produce an album for Pop: 1986's new wave-influenced Blah-Blah-Blah, featuring the single "Real Wild Child", a cover of "The Wild One", originally written and recorded by Australian rock 'n' roll musician Johnny O'Keefe in 1958. Iggy Pop_sentence_106

The single was a Top 10 hit in the UK and was successful around the world, especially in Australia, where it has been used since 1987 as the theme music for the ABC's late-night music video show Rage. Iggy Pop_sentence_107

Blah-Blah-Blah was Pop's highest-charting album in the U.S. since The Idiot in 1977, peaking at No. Iggy Pop_sentence_108

75 on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart. Iggy Pop_sentence_109

Also in 1985, Pop and Lou Reed contributed their singing voices to the animated film Rock & Rule. Iggy Pop_sentence_110

Pop performed the song "Pain & Suffering" in the final sequence of the film. Iggy Pop_sentence_111

In 1987, Pop appeared (along with Bootsy Collins) on a mostly instrumental album, Neo Geo, by Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto. Iggy Pop_sentence_112

The music video for "Risky", written and directed by Meiert Avis, won the first ever MTV Breakthrough Video Award. Iggy Pop_sentence_113

The groundbreaking video explores philosopher FM-2030's ideas of Nostalgia for the Future in the form of an imagined love affair between a robot and one of Man Ray's models in Paris in the late 1930s. Iggy Pop_sentence_114

Additional inspiration was drawn from Jean Baudrillard, Edvard Munch's 1894 painting Puberty, and Roland Barthes Death of the Author. Iggy Pop_sentence_115

The surrealist black-and-white video uses stop motion, light painting, and other retro in-camera effects techniques. Iggy Pop_sentence_116

Meiert Avis recorded Sakamoto while at work on the score for The Last Emperor in London. Iggy Pop_sentence_117

Sakamoto also appears in the video painting words and messages to an open shutter camera. Iggy Pop_sentence_118

Pop, who performs the vocals on "Risky", chose not to appear in the video, allowing his performance space to be occupied by the surrealist era robot. Iggy Pop_sentence_119

Pop's follow-up to Blah Blah Blah, Instinct (1988), was a turnaround in musical direction. Iggy Pop_sentence_120

Its stripped-back, guitar-based sound leaned further towards the sound of the Stooges than any of his solo albums to date. Iggy Pop_sentence_121

His record label dropped him, but the King Biscuit Flower Hour radio show recorded the Instinct tour (featuring guitarist Andy McCoy and Alvin Gibbs on bass) in Boston on July 19, 1988. Iggy Pop_sentence_122

Working with rock attorney Stann Findelle, Pop scored more movie soundtrack inclusions in 1989: "Living on the Edge of the Night" in the Ridley Scott thriller Black Rain; and "Love Transfusion", a song originally written by Alice Cooper (who does backing vocals) and Desmond Child, in Wes Craven's Shocker. Iggy Pop_sentence_123

Also, at the same time, Pop, dissatisfied from RCA's decisions, revoked copyrights of his RCA releases, assigned it to his company Thousand Mile, and signed a contract with Virgin Records, which was a unique hybrid of distribution deal for his RCA releases and a recording contract for new albums. Iggy Pop_sentence_124

Virgin first reissued Lust for Life and The Idiot in 1990, then TV Eye Live 1977 in 1994. Iggy Pop_sentence_125

Virgin continues to distribute these albums to this day. Iggy Pop_sentence_126

1990s Iggy Pop_section_7

In 1990, Pop recorded Brick by Brick, produced by Don Was, with members of Guns N' Roses and The B-52's as guests, as well as backup vocals by many local Hollywood groups, two of whom (Whitey Kirst and Craig Pike) would create his band to tour and perform on his Kiss My Blood video (1991), directed by Tim Pope and filmed at the Olympia in Paris. Iggy Pop_sentence_127

The video attracted much controversy, as it featured much footage of Pop performing with his penis exposed to the audience. Iggy Pop_sentence_128

The album featured his first Top 40 U.S. hit, "Candy", a duet with B-52's singer Kate Pierson. Iggy Pop_sentence_129

Also in 1990, Pop sang the role of "The Prosecutor" for the POINT Music/Philips Classics recording (released in 1992) of composer John Moran's multimedia opera The Manson Family. Iggy Pop_sentence_130

That year he also contributed to the Red Hot Organization's AIDS benefit album Red Hot + Blue project, singing a version of "Well Did You Evah!" Iggy Pop_sentence_131

in a duet with Debbie Harry. Iggy Pop_sentence_132

In the early to middle 1990s, Pop would make several guest appearances on the Nickelodeon show The Adventures of Pete and Pete. Iggy Pop_sentence_133

He played James Mecklenberg, Nona Mecklenberg's father. Iggy Pop_sentence_134

In 1991, Pop and Kirst contributed the song "Why Was I Born (Freddy's Dead)" to the soundtrack of the film Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare. Iggy Pop_sentence_135

The song also plays over the end credits of the film, with a compilation of clips from the A Nightmare on Elm Street series running alongside the end credits. Iggy Pop_sentence_136

In the same year, Pop sang a leading role in the John Moran opera The Manson Family. Iggy Pop_sentence_137

In 1992, he collaborated with Goran Bregović on the soundtrack for the movie Arizona Dream by Emir Kusturica. Iggy Pop_sentence_138

Pop sang four of the songs: In the Deathcar, TV Screen, Get the Money, and This is a Film. Iggy Pop_sentence_139

Also in 1992, he collaborated with the New York City band White Zombie. Iggy Pop_sentence_140

He recorded spoken word vocals on the intro and outro of the song "Black Sunshine" as well as playing the character of a writer in the video shot for the song. Iggy Pop_sentence_141

He is singled out for special thanks in the liner notes of the band's album La Sexorcisto: Devil Music Volume One. Iggy Pop_sentence_142

In 1993, Pop released American Caesar, including two successful singles, "Wild America" and "Beside You". Iggy Pop_sentence_143

The following year Pop contributed to Buckethead's album Giant Robot, including the songs "Buckethead's Toy Store" and "Post Office Buddy". Iggy Pop_sentence_144

He appears also on the Les Rita Mitsouko album Système D where he sings the duet "My Love is Bad" with Catherine Ringer. Iggy Pop_sentence_145

In 1996, Pop again found mainstream fame when his 1977 song "Lust for Life" was featured in the film Trainspotting. Iggy Pop_sentence_146

A new video was recorded for the song, with clips from the film and studio footage of Pop dancing with one of the film's stars, Ewen Bremner. Iggy Pop_sentence_147

A Pop concert also served as a plot point in the film. Iggy Pop_sentence_148

The song has also been used in TV commercials for Royal Caribbean and as the theme music to The Jim Rome Show, a nationally syndicated American sports talk show. Iggy Pop_sentence_149

In 1996, Pop released Naughty Little Doggie, with Whitey Kirst returning on guitar, and the single "I Wanna Live". Iggy Pop_sentence_150

In 1997, he remixed Raw Power to give it a rougher, more hard-edged sound; fans had complained for years that Bowie's official "rescue effort" mix was muddy and lacking in bass. Iggy Pop_sentence_151

Pop testified in the reissue's liner notes that on the new mix, "everything's still in the red". Iggy Pop_sentence_152

He co-produced his 1999 album Avenue B with Don Was, releasing the single "Corruption". Iggy Pop_sentence_153

In 1997, Pop was credited with the soundtrack to the film The Brave. Iggy Pop_sentence_154

On January 1, 1998, Pop made a guest appearance on Paramount Television's science fiction series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Iggy Pop_sentence_155

Pop played a Vorta in an episode based upon the film The Magnificent Seven, titled "The Magnificent Ferengi". Iggy Pop_sentence_156

Pop also contributed the theme song for "Space Goofs". Iggy Pop_sentence_157

Pop supplied vocals for the 1999 Death in Vegas UK Top-10 single Aisha. Iggy Pop_sentence_158

The same year he appeared on Hashisheen, The End of Law, a collaborative effort by Bill Laswell, reading on the tracks The Western Lands and A Quick Trip to Alamut. Iggy Pop_sentence_159

He also sang on the tracks "Rolodex Propaganda" and "Enfilade" by At the Drive-In in 2000. Iggy Pop_sentence_160

For New Year's Eve 1997, Pop was the headliner for the annual Australian three-day concert the Falls Festival. Iggy Pop_sentence_161

He gave one of the most memorable performances in the history of the festival. Iggy Pop_sentence_162

A member of the audience got to do the countdown for the new year with Pop as part of a competition to guess Pop's new year's resolution (it was "To do nothing and make a lot of money!") Iggy Pop_sentence_163

The Stooges reunion: 2003–2010 Iggy Pop_section_8

Pop's 2003 album Skull Ring featured collaborators Sum 41, Green Day, Peaches, and The Trolls, as well as Ron and Scott Asheton, reuniting the three surviving founding members of the Stooges for the first time since 1974. Iggy Pop_sentence_164

Pop made a guest appearance on Peaches's song Kick It as well as the video. Iggy Pop_sentence_165

Also in 2003, his first full-length biography was published. Iggy Pop_sentence_166

Gimme Danger – The Story of Iggy Pop was written by Joe Ambrose; Pop did not collaborate on the biography or publicly endorse it. Iggy Pop_sentence_167

Having enjoyed working with the Ashetons on Skull Ring, Pop reformed the Stooges with bassist Mike Watt (formerly of the Minutemen) filling in for the late Dave Alexander, and Fun House saxophonist Steve Mackay rejoining the lineup. Iggy Pop_sentence_168

They have toured regularly since 2004. Iggy Pop_sentence_169

That year, Pop opened Madonna's Reinvention World Tour in Dublin. Iggy Pop_sentence_170

Pop and the Stooges played the Glastonbury Festival in June 2007. Iggy Pop_sentence_171

Their set included material from the 2007 album The Weirdness and classics such as "No Fun" and "I Wanna Be Your Dog". Iggy Pop_sentence_172

Pop also caused controversy in June 2007 when he was interviewed on the BBC's coverage of the Glastonbury Festival. Iggy Pop_sentence_173

He used the phrase "paki shop", apparently unaware of its racist connotations, prompting three complaints and an apology from the BBC. Iggy Pop_sentence_174

On March 10, 2008 Pop appeared at Madonna's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York. Iggy Pop_sentence_175

Together with the Stooges he sang raucous versions of two Madonna hits, "Burning Up" and "Ray of Light". Iggy Pop_sentence_176

Before leaving the stage he looked directly at Madonna, quoting "You make me feel shiny and new, like a virgin, touched for the very first time", from Madonna's hit song "Like a Virgin". Iggy Pop_sentence_177

According to guitarist Ron Asheton, Madonna asked the Stooges to perform in her place, as a protest to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for not inducting the Stooges despite six appearances on the nomination ballot. Iggy Pop_sentence_178

Pop also sang on the "No Fun" cover by Asian Dub Foundation on their 2008 album Punkara. Iggy Pop_sentence_179

On January 6, 2009, original Stooges guitarist and Pop's self-described best friend Ron Asheton was found dead from an apparent heart attack. Iggy Pop_sentence_180

He was 60 years old. Iggy Pop_sentence_181

In 2009 James Williamson rejoined the band after 29 years. Iggy Pop_sentence_182

On December 15, 2009 it was announced that the Stooges would be inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 15, 2010. Iggy Pop_sentence_183

Pop had "about two hours of a strong emotional reaction" to the news. Iggy Pop_sentence_184

2000s Iggy Pop_section_9

Pop produced 2001's Beat 'Em Up, which gave birth to The Trolls, releasing the single "Football" featuring Trolls alumni Whitey Kirst and brother Alex. Iggy Pop_sentence_185

In 2005, Pop appeared, along with Madonna, Little Richard, Bootsy Collins, and The Roots' Questlove, in an American TV commercial for the Motorola ROKR phone. Iggy Pop_sentence_186

In early 2006, Pop and the Stooges played in Australia and New Zealand for the Big Day Out. Iggy Pop_sentence_187

They also began work on a new album, The Weirdness, which was recorded by Steve Albini and released in March 2007. Iggy Pop_sentence_188
