  1. Granddad Iggy has gone all Sinatra! Nice to see him back, especially after David Bowie's passing…its like there's continuation.

  2. I wasn't sure we would see Iggy again after the death of the Asheton brothers but, I was thrilled to see him in this new phase of his career.

  3. Iggy: "I write poetry".
    Josh: "It's a wonderful experience to have Iggy as a roomate" <nervously>
    I think I've just died. Is it heaven?

  4. RIP Reed and Bowie. To see Josh Homme pairing up with Iggy on this warms my heart. I think Iggy has a fear of being forgotton. Being 25 and raised with the old legends, I dont see that happening. My future children will learn about these guys.

  5. I mean Iggy is 70 years old and still performing. Y'all can say whatever you want but that is a different artistic quality than our modern-day pop/rockstars. He never sold himself, yet made a career and became a legend. He is a legend. That is no question. I hope he will stay with us just for a bit longer. The album is great btw.

  6. I met Josh and Brode randomly at the Fonda at a Nick Cave show in Hollywood. I said, "Hey you're Josh Homme"! He said "You must be Fernando". I thought it was racist at the time because I'm of Mexican descent. I then met Nick Oliveri because he was playing in my friend's band, "Dwarves". He said, "He's just sarcastic".

  7. Colbert loves Iggy. He’s quoted Stooges on the show before. No one but Stooges fans would have caught it.

  8.

  9. Disappointing album…….Pop's last attempt to become a huge album seller…….His greatest achievements are in the past , and he should enjoy his pension in Miami with his latest boobjob conquest…..
    Shows how good Homme knows Iggy…….3:54 sitting there applauding the "Godfather of Punk" schtick ….while Pop has often enough professed not to have any connection to "punk"….. let alone the god or grandfather of it…. Yuk !!
    Iggy should eat a tiny bit more fat also ……

  10. Hey people and fans of QOTSA And Iggy Pop if you haven't heard these guys playing yet I highly recommend that you research the recording of there songs recorded in the studio are on YouTube and check it out, it really is Groovy shit with the mix of music made and Iggy's vocals will have you dancing and rocking wherever you may be 🤘🤘
