Pop Renovates Burnt House To Ensure Band Survival
IGGY POP was so determined to ensure his group the Stooges would have a band home in their early days, he spent a day renovating a burnt out house.
The band had no money for proper accommodation, but that didn't stop Pop.
He explains, "We didn't have any money for a band house. So I went to Detroit, I borrowed a shovel from The MC5 and I took some mescaline and I went to a barn...I spent about 10 hours til I came down just trying to dig soot out of this burned out house.
"That's sort of an attitude. You can't stop a guy like that."
