Iggy Pop marked his return to the Isle Of Wight Festival this evening (June 11) with The Stooges by dragging Dave Grohl on stage with him.

The Foo Fighters frontman is set to headline the Main Stage later with his band, and was enjoying watching Iggy and co bring much of their classic 1973 album 'Raw Power' to the second day of the festival from the side of stage. Iggy got annoyed that security guards wouldn't let him drag up crowd members to dance on stage – so he enlisted some VIPs instead.

Foraging into the wings of the stage the singer, stripped to the torso as is custom for his live shows, pulled on VIPs including Grohl, actress Sadie Frost and others including a couple of parents carrying toddlers wearing ear protectors. They danced for the duration of 'Shake Appeal' – see Grohl and Iggy pictured below right.

The band last played the festival in 2008, this time playing a set heavy on 'Raw Power' tunes but also featuring garage rock classics 'Fun House' and 'I Wanna Be Your Dog'.

'Search And Destroy'
