Iggy Pop talks about the man who “resurrected” him and spins his favorite Bowie tracks
As part of BBC’s annual Proms concert series, a David Bowie tribute concert was held at London’s Royal Albert Hall over the weekend, featuring performances from John Cale, Amanda Palmer, Marc Almond, and others. Additionally, Iggy Pop dedicated the latest episode of his BBC Radio program Iggy Confidential to his longtime friend and collaborator.
During the two-hour broadcast, Pop spun his favorite Bowie tracks, including “John, I’m Only Dancing”, “Station to Station”, “Dirty Boys”, “Under Pressure”, “Sound and Vision”, and “I Can’t Give Everything Away” off ★ (Blackstar) alongside more obscure tracks. He also discussed his feelings on some of the songs and shared stories about his interactions with the Thin White Duke. He talked about the time he went to visit Bowie during his performance on Saturday Night Live, and what it was like working with him at the Château d’Hérouville.
