Iggy Pop, Jeff Gold Launching Stooges Book In Detroit, NYC

To celebrate the publication of  Total Chaos: The Story of The Stooges / As Told by Iggy Pop, Third Man Books is presenting Iggy Pop in conversation with author Jeff Gold at two locations: Detroit on October 25 at Third Man Records Cass Corridor, and November 4 in New York City at Rizzoli Bookstore. These events are free and open to the public, with admittance first come, first serve. 

Total Chaos: The Story of The Stooges / As Told by Iggy Pop is the first time the story of this seminal band has been told entirely in Pop's own words, and features a cache of never-seen-before images. Pop's candid, bare-all account is the incredible tragic and triumphant story of a group who rose from youth, fell prey to drugs, alcohol, and music biz realities, collapsed and, nearly 30 years later reformed, recording and touring to great acclaim.

In 2010, the Stooges -- often credited with having invented punk rock -- were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Total Chaos: The Story of The Stooges / As Told by Iggy Pop will be available from Third Man Books November 15, 2016.
