Item description for The Complete Iggy Pop by Richard Adams...
Iggy Pop (aka James Osterberg of Ann Arbor) is one of rock music's most original artists, his remarkable longevity defying the popular perception of him as the most excessive and self-destructive musician of his generation. Today, the walking miracle that is Iggy Pop continues to record, perform, and shock. In The Complete Iggy Pop, music journalist Richard Adams covers the 18 studio albums---including commentary on every song, plus background information on the recording process---the David Bowie collaborations, the live albums, the semi-official albums, and the reissues of early material. All the tours and known concert dates are also recorded, as well as videos, films, TV appearances, and the re-formation of his seminal proto-punk band, the Stooges. It is an indispensable guide to music's most enduring misfit.

The Complete Iggy Pop Jun 3, 2008
This is the most interesting book that I have ever read. It is so complete and comprehensive that I felt compelled to find and listen to almost every CD that was released during the early years of Iggy's career (1960's & 1970's). I was at the Iggy & the Stooges show at Max's Kansas City in New York back in 1973 (the one that was postponed one week after Iggy cut his chest open during the first show the previous week), and this book really took me back to that night on numerous occaisions. The author (Richard Adams) did a fabulous job of bringing out every possible detail of Iggy's amazing life and career, and the Discography sections at the end are unbelievable! And there's even a couple of pages of very rare photos spanning from 1970 - 2001 in the middle of the book. This is a fascinating book. I couldn't put it down!
