The caveman Iggy Pop

Iggy Pop was once asked whether there was any truth to the rumor that, while sharing a house with the Stooges in Ann Arbor, Michigan, he had regularly defecated on the back porch. "Yes," Pop replied with a laugh. "It's hard to explain. I was trying to get close to nature. I also never sat on chairs. It was a little bit caveman. I was also taking psychedelic drugs..."

Rock & Roll is my only friend


Hopper and Bowie helps a friend

After Iggy Pop was checked into a psychiatric hospital in 1975, David Bowie and Dennis Hopper smuggled drugs inside to cheer him up.

"We thought we should bring him some drugs, because he probably hadn't had any for days."


When greatness collides


Iggy Pop on DMT

"In the '60s, I took DMT, it was a gaseous wax that you could smoke that gave you a 20-minute psychedelic high. You'd inhale it. And then when you'd exhale—poof, you'd be high. I saw Buddha, man. I know that sounds like no big deal. But I saw a gigantic holographic Buddha — correct in every way! Buddhas can be very intricate — these drawings that you see in books. Thousands of details were included in this Buddha. Where did they come from? I didn't make them up. I can't even draw, you know? I could barely spell cat, you know? And there it was. And I thought, Wow — the power of the mind, you know?"
