Iggy Pop asked to be judge on American Idol + new Stooges albumIggy Pops recent appearance on Americam Idol was controversial for the purists, but initially he was asked to be a judge on the show.
The Ig turned it down. he shouldn’t have. It would have been pretty interesting!

Also there is news that new Stooges album is in the pipeline. the album looks set to come out after a new solo album, a part 2 to the Le Premilineurs album of jazzy crooning, there is a molted cover of the Beatles Michelle on there. Weird.

The Stooges album sounds interesting…

Iggy said of working on the Stooges with James Williamson, on new material: “about eight things right now that are… sort of complete songs. Maybe some of them need to be more complete or some of them need to be forgotten. And then some of them… just flow right along.” So, here’s to hoping that we get a new Stooges album in the next five years!

  1. In the case of American Idol, the type of people who are watching the show also tends to heavily reflect on who the winner will be. Thanks to the success of shows like Nashville Star there are very few country music sensations coming from the American Idol camp. However, you do on occasion have a country treasure to find, after all Carrie Underwood and a few other Idol rejects are doing extremely well in country music. The personality of the viewers tends to show in the actual contestants. Those who perform well in styles of music that the audience can connect with tend to stay on the show much longer.^
