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.

David Bowie, Circus Magazine, April 1976
