Iggy Pop leads off NPR's list of 50 great voices
In a piece headlined "The Voice as Weapon," NPR explains, "His isn't the first name you'd expect to see on a list of great voices. But when you think of voice in the broadest sense of the word — a person communicating an idea with an audience — then Iggy Pop more than holds his own."
Read the story and hear audio at NPR's website. (Note that the fact that he comes first doesn't necessarily mean NPR is ranking him No. 50, or No. 1 — he's just first.) And don't forget that on March 15, Pop's proto-punk band the Stooges will be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame.
