Tribute to Ron Asheton: Featuring Iggy & the Stooges & Special Guests: DVD

Jun 13, 2014

Every live video of Iggy Pop performing is important because it is another opportunity to try to determine the source of his power. How is he able to move like that? I’ve had a theory going that he is a highly evolved version of the robo-musicians that used to hang out at Chuck E Cheese and Showbiz Pizza. Upon scrutinizing this DVD, I’ve decided to throw that theory out. No cords. No place for a battery pack. Maybe he’s just a hundred gallons of molten rock and roll living in an impervious skin suit. I don’t know. This DVD isn’t about Iggy anyway. It’s about former Stooges Guitarist Ron Asheton. The current lineup of the Stooges pays tribute the only way they know how—by just destroying everything with music. They get help from Denniz Tek. Old man Rollins even sings a tune. How is it that Henry Rollins is now older than Iggy Pop? Why is nobody else trying to unravel the mystery of Iggy? –MP Johnson (MVD Visual, 203 Windsor Rd., Pottstown, PA 19464,
