great clip of Iggy Pop singing Sinatra in New York in 1979Iggy has always professed a fondness for the crooning of Frank Sinatra, you can hear it in his velvet voice.

He has even made a few attempts in the studio to capture ol blue eyes but never as good as on this clip that has surfaced on the internet.



If he could capture this mash between the Stooges psycho blues and Frank’s croon one more  time it could be another escape route for the Ig.
