Stooges film US television special

Iggy & co. to appear on Henry Rollins Show

The Stooges are set to appear on a special episode of The Henry Rollins Show, set to air this Friday in the US.

The show sees Rollins sit down with Iggy Pop and the rest of The Stooges to discuss the band’s decision to re-unite and record new material.

On the show, Pop talks about his determination to get the Stooges off the ground in Vietnam-era Detroit, saying:

“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 ten hours till 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.”

In addition to talking to Rollins, the band will perform material from their new album ‘The Weirdness’.
