Recently, Iggy Pop posed naked for 21 artists, aged from 18 to 80, in a nude drawing class for a project spearheaded by the Brooklyn Museum and conceptual artist Jeremy Deller.
Iggy is more than your standard punk guy, but a man that walks down different avenues instead of the same old tunnels like so many of his contemporaries. I like that.
By the way, do you know about the «Six Degrees of Separation Theory»? Fun fact is I’m pretty closely related to Iggy Pop, if playing by this theory. Here it goes:
I met and played a show on the same stage as Schultz from Parabellum, he played together with the French singer Demi Mondaine (plus after Schultz died, I exchanged a few short messages with Béatrice Demi Mondaine) and Iggy gave her, exclusively, one of his old The Stooges unreleased song (from 1969) named «Private Parts» for her to record and sing live.
So, I realized that I’m only three degrees apart from Iggy Pop! Or well, even two, since, sadly, Schultz is not there anymore.
Maybe I could try to get his phone number? Hey! I play punk and I like to be naked too! Maybe we could get along just fine, haha. I’m kidding, of course. 😉
Here’s a photo with the beautiful Bea & Iggy, plus the cover art for Private Parts:
