Iggy Pop - Post Pop Depression: Live At The Royal Albert Hall Review

Extraordinary

"Iggy Pop - Post Pop Depression: Live At The Royal Albert Hall" is a DVD which shows the world what audiences who attended the springtime "Post Pop Depression" concerts knew intimately. Iggy Pop, a dynamic frontman, rightfully called an icon by the Grammy awards-granting body, is backed by talented sidemen who work through material from two eras of rock and roll.

Super Duper Alice Cooper Trailer


It's fair to say that Vincent Furnier made musical history when he became Alice Cooper; an androgynous shock rocker who spent his teenage years pursuing a career in rock, and certainly not following in his preacher father's footsteps. From his inception, Alice Cooper went against the grain of what is accepted in modern music with over-the-top, gore-filled live shows which at one point saw a chicken get unwittingly murdered by his audience. However, the fun soon got out of hand when Alice Cooper and his band got fully submerged in the rock 'n' roll world of alcohol and drug abuse. Setting up the drinking club The Hollywood Vampires, Alice Cooper would be hospitalised more than once for his substance abuse issues, getting so obsessed with that world that he would not even be able to remember large chunks of his recording career.

Part of the process when you buy something from an artist, it’s kind of an anointing, you are giving that person love.”

Could Daniel Radcliffe Successfully Play Iggy Pop?


Daniel Radcliffe Iggy Pop

Following Daniel Radcliffe's recent announcement that he wouldn't mind playing the unpredictable and irrational Iggy Pop in a film, it's interesting to wonder whether Radcliffe could actually pull off the part of the drug-addled rock star.

Daniel Radcliffe admits there are similarities between him and Iggy Pop

The comment came from an interview with radio host Eric J Lawrence, in which Radcliffe stated "we've got a similar, gnarly sort of, slightly strange skinny bodies." Perhaps the twenty five year old's star power would be the perfect draw for an Iggy Pop film, as the last time Pop was portrayed on screen was by Foo Fighters drummer, Taylor Hawkins last year. The film, CBGB, received negative reviews, with review aggregate website Rotten Tomatoes rating the film only 6%.
