American James Newell Osterberg, who would later be known as Iggy Pop, was born on April 21, 1947 in the city of Muskegon, Michigan. In the early 1960s, Osterberg, who was attracted to the blues, started playing drums and formed his first band, Iguanas, with schoolmates in the city of Ann Arbor. It was at this time that he earned the nickname Iggy.
Within the series of albums released by Iggy Pop, Brick by Brick (1990) stands out, an album that brought the hit "Candy", a duet with Kate Pierson (The B-52's).
In 2016, the artist released Post Pop Depression, an album made in partnership with Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age), with collaborations by Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age, The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather) and Matt Helders (Arctic Monkeys). Free, his 18th album, arrived in 2019. In early 2023, Iggy released Every Loser.
