Iggy And The Stooges Bring Raw Power To The Riv
[photogallerylink id=35363 align=left]Iggy, at 63 years old recently said he was finished stage diving. He’s evidently had a change of heart. The shirtless wonder repeatedly dove into the crowd including once between songs saying, “This one’s for nothing”. He jumped, pranced and good naturedly flipped the audience off. When not smashing the mic on the floor, he’d fling it into the audience and once pretended to hang himself with the chord. He invited fans onto the stage for one song and everybody danced uncontrollably while snapping pictures with their cell phones. He crawled on his belly and left a lake of perspiration on the floor. Oh yeah, the music was great too. Guitarist James Williamson, fresh from his 30 year retirement, was on hand to relive the Raw Power days, joined by original drummer Scott Ashton and ringer on bass, ex-Minuteman Mike Watt. By show’s end we were deaf, dehydrated and delirious. I’m still recovering.
Audio is not the best here, but this video shows the energy of the show.
