Describe the night you first saw and heard Iggy Pop.
"I remember his bottom more than anything else. I saw him only from the back as I was playing piano for him. This was around 1976, I suppose. I'd never seen him on-stage up until then, I knew him and loved his records and had brought him to England to play in 1973 but had missed those gigs because I was working. I couldn't get over his energy and commitment to savage realism. It was just not the same Jim that I knew, though. A rather lonely and quiet guy with a drug problem, horn-rimmed glasses and huge appetite for reading. When he was straight he was one of the sweetest guys you wish to be and talk with. But when stoned, oh, what a mess. Well, we both were. Can't help but respect what he's done, though. Not sure about this Charles Bukowski direction he's taken over the last few years. It's not defying expectations. It's playing to the gallery. I think he's got far greater potential than he allows himself. He just needs nudging in the right direction."
