ROCK IGGY POP Barrowland, Glasgow, Wed 17 Jul

When Charlie wasn‘t surfing and Uncle Sam was painting the future agent orange. Iggy introduced himself as “a street fighting cheetah with a hide full of napalm'. The Stooges certainly offered up an incendiary take on rock'n'roll. but not everyone was impressed.

'Iggy is very sweet but very stupid.‘ Lou Reed meowed. ‘He's not even a good imitation of a bad Jim Morrisoo and he was never any good anyway.‘ Hit me with a flower . . .

. . . cos you're so vicious. But when it comes to Ig-bashing. better join the queue. Lou. Standing aside from his persona. James Jewel Osterberg has spoken in past interviews of being ‘the fucked up godfather of nihilistic horseshit'. even labeled his alter ego “God's garbage man'. ‘I've been a puppet. the asshole. the dupe. the iunkie.‘ he's said. 'And I've come through it all'.

1’2! 1’

Others have been kinder. Names. let's drop a few. Debbie Harry calls him ‘one of my all time heroes'. William Burroughs saw “a man who stands up to tell the truth in a house full of lies' and one observer even talked of 'a real woman: JLISI like Catherine Deneuve'. Mind you the latter was Iggy himself. Ever ready to take a pop. (Rodger Evans.i
