Synopsis

The influence of The Stooges on the world of punk and rock 'n' roll is immeasurable. The band's three albums - The Stooges, Fun House and Raw Power - have all gone down in history as bona fide classics. The fact that the band only existed for a few short years makes their achievements all the more impressive. Lead singer Iggy Pop went on to have huge success as a solo artist, working with the likes of David Bowie and Green Day, yet equally The Stooges' legacy grew with every passing year.In the middle of 2000, Iggy reformed The Stooges with brothers Ron and Scott 'Rock Action' Asheton, alongside bassist Mike Watt. The Stooges have since gone from strength to strength, headlining festivals around the world, cementing their place in the rock pantheon.This is the first in-depth biography of the entire band. Detriot-based author Brett Callwood has interviewed key players in The Stooges' story, such as Iggy Pop, Ron Asheton, James Williamson, Steve Mackay and Mike Watt, as well as members of Destroy All Monsters, Sonic's Rendezvous Band and the MC5. This is the definitive history of one of the greatest bands of all-time. UNOFFICIAL & UNAUTHORISED
