Iggy & Stooges ignited Ann Arbor (rocked with MC5 too!). Respectfully considered to be the "Godfather" of all Punk Music (Seriously). Credited with starting/promoting "Stage diving". The weirdest Lady Gaga stagemaster of his era (well, different anyway). Taken in for band "reprogramming" by pal David Bowie in '72. Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2010. And still kicking out the peanut butter and jams M........ Now how about that for our esteemed list of firsts? First region to raise an Iggy Pop.
