Powerful footage of the Stooges taken by NYC musician Ryan Skeleton Boy in November of 2003. The live set was performed at Tower Records and is riddled with funny commentary by Iggy on the sad state of music and his drug influenced lyrics.
NIAGARA: DETROIT ROCK ROYALTY ON MUSIC, ART, & RON ASHETON! - The True Story of Niagara, Destroy All Monsters & the Desecration of Detroit
Ron and Scott Asheton were the nucleus of the Stooges, the greatest fucking punk band in the world. Having attended Fordson High School in Dearborn, Michigan, with Iggy Pop (né James Osterberg), the Asheton brothers were hoodlum types who attracted other punks with their erratic, wild behavior. As Iggy said of the Ashetons, “These guys were the laziest delinquent sorts of pig slobs ever born. Really spoiled rotten and babied by their mother. [Their] dad had died, so they didn’t have much discipline at home.”
