Stooges: The Authorized and Illustrated Story

    By

    "The Stooges" is the first authorized, illustrated book that tells the inside story of the legendary punk rock band formed by Iggy Pop. Formed in Ann Arbor, Michigan, in 1967, the Stooges are icons of modern rock, influencing the fledgling sounds of punk, heavy metal and hard core. From the beginning, lead singer and provocateur Iggy Pop b. James Osterberg astounded audiences with his outrageous stage performances, accompanied by guitarist Ron Asheton, his drummer brother Scott Asheton and bassist Dave Alexander with their raw and bracing sound. The group disbanded in 1974, but reunited in 2003 and continues to tour today. In this book, rock photographer Robert Matheu compiles the first ever authorized book about the band, including iconic photographs, classic interviews and vintage articles and ephemera dating from the band's breakout performances in Detroit in the late 1960s through to their most recent shows in 2009. With new interviews from every significant member of the Stooges, past and present, a Stooges discography and the transcribed lyrics to all of their songs, "The Stooges" is the definitive book about this trailblazing band.
