Biography

Ann Arbor, Michigan, United States (1967 – 1974, 2003 – present)

The Stooges (also known as Iggy and the Stooges) are an American group that was formed in Ann Arbor, Michigan, United States in 1967. Featuring a bombastic sound, they released three studio albums before breaking up in 1974. Despite picking up little to no chart or radio success, the band has proved to be one of the most influential rock groups of the past several decades, inspiring many artists such as the Ramones. The band reunited in 2003, released another record in 2007, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010. Their best known lineup consisted of Iggy Pop (vocals), Ron Asheton (guitar), Dave Alexander (bass), and Scott Asheton (drums).

Singer Iggy Pop and his wild onstage antics were often the focus of attention. The band had a shambling, sound deliberately reminiscent of past groups. They sold very few records in their original incarnation and often performed to indifferent or hostile audiences. Nevertheless, the Stooges are often regarded as hugely influential both on then-nascent movement and also on . As has been said about The Velvet Underground, the handful of people who did actually buy the Stooges’ early records at the time ended up forming bands of their own and thus changed history. In fact, Velvet Underground member John Cale produced the original incarnation of their self-titled album. The 1969 album ‘The Stooges’ has received since its release critical acclaim from many reviewers over the years.

    Безумие и хаос - так бы охарактеризовал их. Неплохо, я считаю, вполне. КЛАССИКА прото-панка, как никак.

    @silverlage They have a ton of compilations both official and semi-official. The actual albums released under the Stooges name are The Stooges, Fun House, The Weirdness and Ready to Die. Then of course Raw Power was released under the name Iggy and the Stooges.
