Short Article by Classics Scholar Iggy Pop


The peer reviewed journal Classics Ireland published this some time ago, but I think it’s still relevant, & in a curious way, uplifting.

Thoughts? Here’s a second link in case you have problems with the first.


Iggy is a weird guy. He appeared to be the most anti-industry rock star in the world, but he is the one who started licensing his music for commercials before everyone else did it. No doubt Iggy is smart & incredibly talented. But he loves the dumb-dumb thing. After the Stooges he got all intellectual with Bowie for his albums in the 1970s, only to revert to the mean. He is super rich though!


Iggy, if you’re reading this, please donate! If you donate we’ll tell everybody that The Doors copied The Stooges.
