Who in their right mind is going to give IGGY POP insurance?
I suppose if he's lasted this long...
Iggy Pop in "embarrassing himself and everyone who has ever respected him" shocker
Leading sources have linked the incident to his ill-advised decision to live beyond 1974
it made me laugh. Do you not laugh? He was. It probably bought him a kitchen or something. He's loving it.
has to appear on insurance adverts to make ends meet.
HE'S SELLING TIME!
He was in the Stooges. Also he was the most terrifying act at Leeds 2001 by miles, all wrinkly and bleeding. I remember thinking 'if that man wants to sell insurance in eight years I will not stand in his way'.
so much that it needs 3 ts
cut him some slack!!
i was going to let him off with being old, foreign and in the Stooges
we have to cut him then test his blood w/a really hot wire
OR jump on his head and see if he turns small and purple
I guess lots of ppl have a fear of the unknown, we can only hope that they are curious too, like everyone else is
I have no real problem with people selling out. We all need money!
Then again what will i be doing by the time i look as bad as him? Prob rotting in the ground so fair play!
even Iggy. And in the grand scheme of stupid shit he's done since Raw Power, I'd say collaborating with Sum 41 is somewhat higher up than this...
but i still hate that cringe feeling when i see the advert. Makes me shudder.
the Iggster said angrily in an interview something about how much better things were in the 70's for artists signed to major labels and how nowadays they were just "sucking on the corporate cock". Is this an admittance of "Cant beat 'em? - join 'em!". He made fuck-loads from Bowie's cover of 'China Girl' though. Its defo worse than Lydon's Butter ad.
i think, or Iggy contributed lyrics.
Bowie covered so that Iggy could pay a tax bill. Pop trivia fans.
Iggy claiming to have this busy tight schedule, errr you're a rock star hardly 9 - 5 nose to the grind stone stuff is it
