Iggy pop dating
" Shortly after witnessing an MC5 concert in Ann Arbor, Osterberg began using the stage name Iggy Pop, a name that he has used ever since.Though the Stooges had formed, Iggy Pop attributes two key motivating influences to move the band forward.
Bill asks Lucas to stay and to make peace with Isabelle, but really he has another agenda - he has a plan...trying to decipher where it started..what you would do, if you were to mingle into someone else's conversation at a party...you won't start to grasp it until a little while in, as the movie and characters start to develop.I found it intriguing, and being a major ' Secret Squirrel' fan, I am easily bored with thrillers that haven't taken the time to be inventive, have so many loopholes and you've worked out 'who done it' within the first 5 minutes! With this movie, your intrigue into the characters backgrounds, keeps the momentum up and glued to the screen, leading you into a few directions, that clear up some unanswered questions you might have.At one of their early Grande Ballroom performances, Asheton's guitar neck separated from the body forcing the band to stop playing during the opening song, "I Wanna Be Your Dog".The group's early sound differed from their later music; critic Edwin Pouncey writes: The Stooges' early musical experiments were more avant garde than punk rock, with Pop incorporating such household objects as a vacuum cleaner and a blender into an intense wall of feedback that one observer described as sounding like "an airplane was landing in the room." Homemade instruments were also incorporated to flesh out the overall sound.Admittedly, the 'slooth' in me, had a spark about a third of the way through of what the conclusion would be, but it kept me questioning and in self doubt until right at the end!
Well worth the watch for a low budget movie....well, I'm not sure what Iggy would have commanded, but movies like this I remember, as it's the Director that should be applauded for managing to keep us enthralled.
The 'Jim-a-phone' involved pushing feedback through a funnel device which was raised and lowered to achieve the best effect.
There was also a cheap Hawaiian guitar which Pop and guitarist Ron Asheton would take turns in plucking to produce a simulated sitar drone, while drummer Scott Asheton pounded away at a set of oil drums with a ball hammer.
Ron Asheton (guitar) and Scott Asheton (drums) and Dave Alexander (bass guitar) composed the rest of the band, with Osterberg as main singer.
Osterberg became interested in Ron Asheton after seeing him perform in the Chosen Few (a covers band), believing "I’ve never met a convincing musician that didn’t look kind of ill and kind of dirty, and Ron had those two things covered!
The first was seeing the Doors perform at a homecoming dance for the University of Michigan.
