Known by some as "The Godfather Of Punk", Iggy Pop is wrapping up his 50-year career that spans his work with The Stooges, David Bowie and his own solo work. His last album (at least that's what he claims) is Post Pop Depression, Pop's collaboration with Josh Homme of Queens Of The Stone Age. Iggy's solo career has been a patchy one, starting with the one-two punch of The Idiot and Lust For Life and then wandering all over the musical landscape for the following 40 years, eventually culminating in a Stooges reunion and now, this final album, being hailed as his finest since 1977's Lust For Life.
