Here Comes Success


It's about as ironically surreal as anything you'll find on television right now: Cadillac is using Iggy Pop doing Punk Rocker in its latest series of commercials.

I'd get angry and prove myself to be the sadly aging ex-punk that I am, but I'm willing to give Iggy the benefit of the doubt on this one simply because music becomes public property seventy years after the artist's death and, to the best of my knowledge, he's been dead for at least that long.

At least he looks like he has.

Harsh, guy, but funny. Especially since he's not above bashing folks for selling out. Check out the interview he had on Fresh Air with Terry Gross.

hahhaa.....i tell ya what though, I saw the reformed Stooges early 2006 at an Australian alternative music festival and they rocked pretty much every act right off the fucking stage - so much power and actual dedication.
