American Caesar is a 1993 album by Iggy Pop. After the success of Brick by Brick, Pop opted to continue with that album's lyrical themes while toughening up the musical foundation. Consequently, the album is often considered one of his stronger 90's albums.
The first two Stooge albums, "Stooges" and "Fun House", were recorded in a loose way. Much in the style of James Brown, Iggy wrote lyrics and a central riff and the band built music around that and improvised. Made in a very different way, "Raw Power" was written out from beginning to end by Iggy and James Williamson, and the songs were played exactly as written.
Attended Ann Arbor Pioneer High School in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
"Punk rock is a word used by dilettantes and heartless manipulators about music that takes up the energies, the bodies, the hearts, the souls, the time and the minds of young men who give everything they have to it." (1977)
"That band could kill any band at the time and frankly can just kill any bands that built on this work since...just eat any of those poodles." - on his band The Stooges.

The 21st of July marks the 25th anniversary of one of the most iconic albums in rock 'n' roll, if not the most iconic. Back in 1987, Guns N' Roses were at their prime and 'Appetite For Destruction' catapulted them to dizzying heights of glamour and excess, fame and fortune. That was, of course, until it all fell apart.
There's been many feuds, the most famous being that of Axl Rose and Slash, yet it looked like fans might get a chance to see them at least stand together as they were inducted into the Rock 'N'... Read More
