Coming November 15: Total Chaos: The Story of The Stooges/As Told By Iggy Pop



I’m excited to announce that my new book, Total Chaos: The Story of The Stooges/As Told By Iggy Pop will be released November 15.  It’s an uncensored oral and visual history of the band that invented Punk, as told by the man who willed The Stooges into existence, and kept them alive through through years of, well, total chaos.

My friend and fellow Stooges collector, Johan Kugelberg, and I spent two days with Iggy in his Miami back yard, as he downloaded the entire history of the band that invented a genre.  Iggy’s memory is incredible, and he held nothing back.  We were astounded by his recall, masterful storytelling, and the many revelations that even we, as Stooges “experts”, hadn’t known.

The book, published by Jack White’s Third  Man Books,  is 350 pages, with 220 images, most of which have never been published.  With Stooges appreciations from Dave Grohl, Josh Homme, Joan Jett, Johnny Marr, and Jack White.  If you’re a fan of Iggy or The Stooges you may want to check out the Total Chaos website, for some previews, and the article Rolling Stone just published.
