Iggy and the Stooges Live On!!

In a recent interview with Crawdaddy! magazine, James Williamson talked about rejoining the Stooges, working on Raw Power and Kill City, and mixing and songwriting. He also spoke about the possibility of recording new singles with the Stooges, and said: "We’re continuing to work on new material, even though we haven’t had much time off the road yet. So this is the period when we’re starting to do that. But we have to have new riffs that capture our imagination, and the lyrics have to match that, and finally the performance has to be such that we can feel proud of it. The bar is set pretty high ... we don’t want to release something that’s not up to par with the Stooges material, but I think we can do it."

Iggy and the 70 year old Stooges have released a live version of Raw Power from their sold out World Tour! Amazing!! To see these guys playing their hearts out at "going on 70 years old" is simply INCREDIBLE! Here is a link to the live album and a link to the Limited Deluxe Edition of Raw Power. This 40 year old album is a great lesson for anyone yearning to be educated in the "School of Rock"
