10 Absolutely Insane Rider Requests By Spoilt Musicians
10. Vegetables In The Trash - Iggy Pop
James Newell Osterberg Junior, or Iggy Pop as you may know him is an absolute legend of punk rock. Since The Stooges first formed in 1967, the 73 year old has torn up stages across the world with nothing but a microphone and a pair of see-through trousers. Known as The Godfather Of Punk, Iggy smashed onto the scene with hits such as Lust For Life and I Wanna Be Your Dog and changed the face of rock music forever.
