If you're going to do rock music, does it have to be the absolute worst rock period there ever was?

I looked at reviews after I listened to it, and apparently it's consciously a "glam throwback." So I agree, odd choice.

Iggy should cover "Ca Plane Pour Moi" :D

Couple of pieces about their long friendship and indeed, the recording of this song, by Iggy, in (mostly) French...




Pop: I used to love the newsstands in England. I’d get very excited on Wednesday morning, when you’d get up and they had the music papers. Sounds, New Musical Express, Melody Maker. Each one would have their own slant. Sounds was the cheap one, and it was pretty easy to get in there.

I appeared in Sounds, and I couldn’t believe it. In one minute, I was working in an office. In the next minute, I was on the cover of Melody Maker for being arrested.
