Iggy Pop  

"I think he respected me for putting myself in a loony bin. He was the only guy who came to visit me...Nobody else came...nobody. Not even my so-called friends in LA...but David came."

NME, 1977

Iggy on Bowie, #2 new [re: ziggfried]  

"Bowie was kooky. That's the kind of person I tend to hang around with. I learned a lot from Bowie, about hard work and applied strategy."

The Guardian, 1996

"I was not executive material like him. I couldn't do the things he seemed to do so well and so easily. Yet I knew I had something he didn't have and could never have."

Mojo, 1996

Bowie on Iggy, #1 new [re: ziggfried]  

“Iggy's amazing. He really has nothing to do with rock and roll, he's in it by accident. He's just the best… "

Bowie on Iggy, #2 new [re: ziggfried]  

"He'll never make it to the recording studios in time. He'll fall asleep or get machine-gunned down in a garage. Iggy's doomed."

Bowie on Iggy, #3 new [re: ziggfried]  

“They just don't appreciate Iggy…He's Lenny fucking Bruce and James Dean. When that ad lib flow starts, there's nobody like him. It's verbal jazz, man!"

Bowie on Iggy, #4 new [re: ziggfried]  

“Terence [Stamp] is going to be Iggy's father [in the Diamond Dogs movie]. Isn’t that lovely? I can't wait to direct it. I think, you see, that the most talented actors around are all in rock and roll. Iggy never should have been a rock & roll singer, he's an actor.”

Re: Bowie on Iggy, #5 [re: ziggfried]  

“I think Iggy stands a very good chance of becoming one of the important young actors in America. I really do. I've seen it. I've put him in front of a camera on several occasions; I've got him falling around doing pretend scenes from method films, and he's absolutely sensational. And nobody will pick him up. They're scared stiff of somebody they consider an amateur. They don't see what he's got. They don't understand that he's not bizarre and outrageous, they can't see that he is, in fact, the essence of the entire mid-American youth syndrome. He is very much the all-American boy. Of course he needs experience. He needs to do a lot more public entertaining. But it's all a part of this thing about watching the crack-up of artists, which I think is a fundamental of rock & roll. Watching artists showing themselves up; watching artists crack open a bit and seeing what they're really like inside. That's why rock & roll is so important. Not seeing superheroes. Watching the process of a person learning how to come to terms with what he really is. Suddenly seeing an artist recognize his own failings. The emphasis is not on watching somebody who's invulnerable and godlike. That's not the thing. People go to concerts to gain information, and the information they go to get is that of seeing an artist reconcile himself with his own failings, gradually, over a period of years.”

Bowie on Iggy, #6 [re: ziggfried]  

“I think that's why Iggy is gonna be so enormous. He's not hard and knowledgeable and all knowing and cynical; all of that has gotten so boring. Every artist always knows the answers of the world; it's so tiring. It's nice to see someone for a change who hasn't a clue. But has insights.

”…That's the charming thing about him, that you can really see the bruises on him. Everybody likes to see someone bruised. No one likes to see a star smile. No one likes to see a happy star. And they're not likely to, either, 'cause there ain't many of 'em.”

Bowie on Iggy, #7 new [re: ziggfried]  

"...other bands cover Presley or the Velvet Underground; I cover Iggy Pop. I think he’s getting better and better as a songwriter, substantially as a lyricist. There’s a fabulous maturity around what he’s doing. He’s my favorite contemporary songwriter."

David Bowie, Music & Sound Output, June 1987
