Open Up And Bleed by Paul Trynka
Iggy Pop's life has been one of extraordinary highs and terrifying lows. Every 'mad, bad dangerous to know' rockstar owes a debt to him, and the stories of his shocking behaviour are legendary. But Iggy Pop is also the alter ego of Jim Ostenberg: the kid voted'Most Likely to Succeed' by his classmates. So what turned this charming, well-mannered, straight-A student into a poster child for rock 'n' roll debauchery?
Paul Trynka tracked down hundreds of the star's friends, family lovers and fellow musicians, unearthing countless new stories. The resulting portrait is a fascinating story of a man at war with the world and with himself.
