“Somewhere in California” – scene from the 1993 Jim Jarmusch film, Coffee and Cigarettes

Solo

In 1990 Iggy released his ninth solo record which was produced by Dan Was formerly of funk group Was (Not Was). It featured both Duff McKagan on bass and Slash on lead guitar; both members of Guns ‘N Roses. Iggy also contributed to the guitar with other musicians also credited.

“Home”

Another musician who makes a guest star appearance is the beautiful Kate Pierson of the B52’s

Layne Staley of Alice in Chains introduces Iggy Pop as Rage’s guest programmer, choosing the video for “Butt Town”

“Butt Town”

A popular video, receiving heavy rotation on MTV as everyone’s loved Beavis and Butt-Head also check out the video of “Butt Town” and dig it quite a bit!

Iggy Pop with Deborah Harry

Not short of contributions when these two punk icons teamed up for a compilation release via the Red Hot Organization, to benefit AIDS. A good cause to bring the voice of Blondie and The Stooges together is legendary in itself!

Well, Did You Evah!

The Cramps were a garage punk band formed in 1976 who split in 2009 due to the death of their vocalist Lux Interior. Their fifth release featured none other than Iggy Pop who provided guest vocals on the song below.

“Miniskirt Blues”

Iggy again worked with the late Wes Craven contributing to yet another horror film.

“Why Was I Born? (Freddy’s Dead)”

The next duet was pretty depressing as it involved the story about a girl sentenced to death for becoming pregnant out of wedlock while the man responsible remained free.

“Daw Da Hiya”

Iggy provides the intro and outro on “Black Sunshine” for the Rob Zombie led nineties group White Zombie. He also features on the video below!

The follow-up to “Brick By Brick” had a strong message, with lyrical themes looking at the real or in this case “Wild America”. Henry Rollins also features in the clip below, giving some of his renowned spoken-word.

Iggy also contributed with three tracks to the soundtrack for Arizona Dream.

“To Belong”

Iggy provided the opening theme to the french cartoon Space Goofs.

 

“Monster Men”

Keeping up with the times Iggy has provided guest vocals to many artists of today, Death in Vegas was one of those and can be seen in all its glory below.

“Aisha”

 

Solo

With Whitey Kirst returning to guitar the album was also co-produced by Was and Iggy. Although the album received mixed reviews, who can deny the relevance of the song “Corruption” which rocks with a major set of gonads!

I’ll Be Seeing You

Getting back to the many contributions of Iggy with artists of today, he worked with the likes of Buckethead and was part of the album which almost saw At the Drive-In go out with a bang.

The follow-up to Avenue B was recorded at Hit Factory Criteria studios in Miami Beach, Florida.  It was the first Iggy Pop album in which The Trolls were credited. The Trolls were made up of Iggy, Whitey Kirst, Pete Marshall, Alex Kirst and Lloyd “Mooseman” Roberts.

The follow-up to Beat ‘Em Up, saw collaborations from Sum 41, Green Day, Peaches, and The Trolls. The most important of these collaborations however were the reuniting of the Asheton brothers, bringing the three surviving founding members of the Stooges together for the first time since 1974.

“Little Know It All” (Feat. Sum 41)

Iggy returned the favour guesting on Peaches record the same year.

Kick It

Having enjoyed working with the Ashetons on Skull Ring, Pop reformed the Stooges with bassist Mike Watt formerly of the Minutemen filling in for the late Dave Alexander, with Fun House saxophonist Steve Mackay making his return.

The Weirdness was the fourth Stooges album and first since Raw Power.  Sadly it was also the last to feature guitarist Ron Asheton who passed in 2009 due to a heart attack. The Stooges would later be inducted into the Musical Hall of Fame in 2010.
