Paul Trynka

Write Review

Rated 0

Biography: general, Prose: non-fiction

The definitive biography of one of rock's most extraordinary legends

Iggy Pop s life has been one of extraordinary highs and terrifying lows. Infamous for his wild ways, he is also a towering figure of the rock scene - hugely influential, charismatic and provocative. Every mad, bad, dangerous to know rock star owes a debt to him, and the stories of his shocking behaviour are legendary. But Iggy Pop is also, to a large extent, a construct, the alter ego of the quietly spoken and intriguing Jim Osterberg: the kid voted Most Likely to Succeed by his classmates. So what turned this charming, well-mannered, straight-A student into a poster child for rock n roll debauchery?
IGGY POP: OPEN UP AND BLEED reveals the truth behind the myths. Former MOJO editor Paul Trynka tracked down the star s friends, family, lovers and fellow musicians, conducting over two hundred and fifty interviews, unearthing countless new stories about Iggy s rollercoaster life, his music and his often misunderstood friendship with David Bowie. From this impeccable research he creates a fascinating portrait of a man at war with the world and with himself. The book also features dozens of never-before seen photos.
