Dead Men Left

ITV repeated the South Bank show interview with Iggy Pop last night. The guy's a legend: free of rock-star bullshit, and with a peculiarly critical view of the world. His dismissal of the hippies who sneered at his early years in The Stooges as "the corporate power-structure in waiting" was a highlight. Yes, it's been said before, but the fact that the children of the revolution (in the Marc Bolan sense) are to a very large extent responsible for seriously screwing up the world has never been phrased so succinctly.
