| Iggy Pop was a punk star long before expanding his credits to include the silver screen. In fact, his musical history dates back to his teenage years in Ypsilanti, MI, influenced by music from blues to rock. Pop performed as a drummer and then lead singer, and his group, the Stooges would become legendary in the history of punk rock. Also involved in collaborations with the likes of David Bowie and Kate Pierson, Pop's image in entertainment spread to cinema in the 1980s, and not just with his tunes gracing film soundtracks.In the early '80s, Pop performed voices for the animated Rock & Rule, and composed the score for Repo Man. He played numerous bit parts in feature films, including Coffee and Cigarettes, Sid and Nancy, and Martin Scorsese's The Color of Money starring Tom Cruise and Paul Newman, all in 1986. In addition he played small parts in Cry-Baby and Hardware, also appearing as himself in documentaries like Red, Hot and Blue and Kiss My Blood in the very early '90s. He played the role of Sally Jenko in the 1995 Western, Dead Man, starring Johnny Depp, and appeared as Rat Face that same year in the indie film Tank Girl. In 1996, he played Curve in the sequel to The Crow, City of Angels.Of course, his role as a musician intertwined with his career in the film industry. Aside from Repo Man, he composed for the dramatic French feature Va Mourire in 1995, and Johnny Depp's The Brave in 1997, which screened at Cannes, but was never released.Pop could also be seen on television with credits to include roles in a 1995 episode of The Adventures of Pete and Pete, an episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine in 1998, as well as an episode of Behind the Music for VH1 centered around his career.
- Is said to be the 'Father of Punk Rock'
- The character Funboy in the original _The Crow (1994)_ was modeled after him, and he was supposed to be cast as Funboy, but scheduling prohibited him from being in the movie. He instead appeared as "Curve" in its sequel, _Crow: City of Angels (1996)_ .
- Father of Eric Benson.
- Iggy plays guitar left-handed.
- Had a cameo role on "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (1993). "DS9" producer Ira Steven Behr was at the time and is to this day a major fan.
- Footage of him writhing on stage is used as the opening of and to separate segments on Australia's longest running and most popular music video show "Rage" (1987).
- Computer animators on Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) used his movement and body as a basis for the character Gollum.
- His group, The Stooges, although never a huge commercial success, was essential in the development of punk rock. In fact, the unifying trait of all the members of what were arguably the two greatest "punk" bands, The Ramones and The Sex Pistols, was their idolizing of Iggy and The Stooges.
- Began calling himself Iggy while working with his first high school band, "The Iguanas."
- Even though he had already created the stage name Iggy Pop, Elektra always billed him as Iggy Stooge in reference to his group, The Stooges, much to Iggy's chagrin.
- The first two Stooge albums, "Stooges" and "Fun House", were recorded in a loose way. Much in the style of James Brown, Iggy wrote lyrics and a central riff and the band built music around that and improvised. Made in a very different way, "Raw Power" was written out from beginning to end by Iggy and James Williamson, and the songs were played exactly as written.
- Known to people very close to him as "Jimmy."
- Now famous for his crazed behavior in the late 60s and 70s, much of Iggy's craziness was fueled by his addiction to heroin. Iggy would often mutilate himself, roll around in peanut butter or broken glass, throw himself offstage (and once down a flight of stairs), bend his body like a pretzel, hump his amps, go naked, and insult the audience. Offstage, he did little else other shoot heroin and have promiscuous sex. In the late 70s, he quit heroin to save his own life and lost interest in sleeping around.
- Iggy (short for "Iguana") is often compared to Jim Morrison (also known as "The Lizard" or the "Lizard King"). While Morrison's The Doors was far better known and more commercially successful than Iggy's Stooges, the Stooges sparked punk rock music. The two were comparably wild men, known for their over-the-top, destructive stage acts and hedonistic behaviors offstage. The biggest difference, of course, is that Iggy survived his wild years, while Morrison didn't. When Morrison died, the surviving Doors even tried to recruit Iggy as a replacement, but he turned them down.
- The Stooges were voted the 78th Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Artists of all time by Rolling Stone.
- David Bowie produced The Stooges' "Raw Power" album as well as Iggy's first two solo albums, "The Idiot" & "Lust For Life". "The Idiot" Contains the original version of the song "China Girl", later covered famously by Bowie.
- In the 1970s, David Bowie played keyboard on his first solo tour. He was an unannounced guest player.
- He has been living with his girlfriend, Nina Alu, for nearly a decade.
- When asked recently what his favorite all-time album was, his choice was Bob Dylan's "Bringing It All Back Home".
- Is of mostly Polish heritage.
- Speaks the intro to White Zombie's song, 'Black Sunshine' from their album 'La Sexorcisto'
- Attended Ann Arbor Pioneer High School in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
