As Iggy Pop is fully aware, sometimes it takes more than just listening to a band’s recordings to really understand where they’re coming from.
No, not until he saw them alive, he finally did get itas he told in a new video interview.
The topic came up because of the late Foos drummer Taylor HawkinsWHO died in Marchcontributing to Iggy’s upcoming album, Everyone loses. It was announced last month with Iggy’s latest single, “Frenzy.”
“Taylor is playing on the album,” Iggy says Audacity check-in. “It’s an incredible energy this guy has. He too played me in a movie, you know? He was into me CBGB’s movieand a poster was his abs like my abs.”
He continues: “I met him – I opened for the Foo Fighters in 2015 at Knebworth. And I never quite understood what they were doing, and then I’d be standing there on the side stage listening to that thing and listening to what he was playing, and it was otherworldly.”
Iggy adds: “It was advanced and powerful and relentless and very detailed at the same time.”
“Frenzy,” produced by Ozzy business partner Andrew Wattoffers musical support from Guns ‘n’ Roses‘ Duff McKagan and Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ Chad Smith. Hear it in the full Audacity interview video below.
