Exclusive: Excerpt from Upcoming Book On The Stooges
 
Brett Callwood recently penned a book on The Stooges called Head On, a Journey Through the Michigan Underground. It hits stores in September, and more info about the book can be found here. The foreword is written by Alice Cooper, and we were able to grab an excerpt to share with you.
From the BookI was not expecting the Stooges. I really got into the fact that they were straight-up street-Detroit rock. There was nothing complicated about it. As far as Iggy goes, it took about two songs before I realized I had competition. Nobody was doing anything like what we did, and then all of the sudden there was this guy with no shirt on, walking on everybody's hands with peanut butter all over himself. Iggy was a physical specimen. He was punk personified. He didn't need props or anything. He was just every kid on the street. He was their spokesman. He was the ultimate godfather of punk. -- Alice Cooper

Interested? Grab it on Amazon.

Actually, the author is Brett Callwood who wrote a whole other book about the MC5. It's awesome and it's called Sonically Speaking. Look it up.
