Punk's Inadvertent Invention: Iggy Pop

iggy pop 77

Whenever I think of John Cale, as I did yesterday when posting those pictures of him... I think of the Stooges and their amazing eponymous album he produced... the one with "I Wanna Be Your Dog" and other songs that became anthems and favorites and punk influences...and still continue to thrill audiences that hear them almost 40 years later.

The underground zeitgeist that midwife'd punk rock started with John Cale, but it was Iggy who broke the water and the conventions. Sometimes all you need to do is look at him and its all perfectly clear.
