Stooges by Brett Callwood

Book Description

Containing primary interviews with all the band members and Iggy himself, as well as other key characters, this biography provides a collection of exclusive and captivating eye-witness accounts of this most important of rock bands. The influence of The Stooges on the world of punk and rock 'n' roll is immeasurable. The band's three albums - "The Stooges", "Fun House" and "Raw Power" - are bona fide classics. The fact that the band only existed for a few short years at the end of the '60s and start of the '70s makes their achievements all the more impressive.Of course, lead singer Iggy Pop went on to have huge success as a solo artist, working with the likes of David Bowie and Green Day, but here, for the first time, The Stooges story is told in-depth, through original interviews with the band members. Just after the turn of the new millennium, Iggy reformed The Stooges with all of the key members present, including brothers Ron and Scott 'Rock Action' Asheton. The Stooges have gone from strength to strength since the reunion, headlining festivals around the world. Their contribution to rock music history is without question and this book is an important document of those times and their lives.

Stooges by Brett Callwood Stooges, Paperback (May 2016)

Fronted by a wild-eyed, bare-chested maniac named Jim Osterberg - now known to the world as Iggy Pop - The Stooges grew from bluesy roots to lead the charge into a new era of punk rock. Their contribution to rock music history is without question and this book is an important document of those times and their lives.

'MC5', Sonically Speaking by Brett Callwood 'MC5', Sonically Speaking, Paperback (April 2007)

Although nobody realised it at the time, the historic importance of the MC5 is vast. Fuelled by the radical politics of the White Panther party, the MC5 preached revolution and were often a target for the authorities. This work details not only the seismic impact that they've had on music, but also the social climate in which they evolved.
