Resisting The Urge

May 2, 2010

I am off to see Iggy & The Stooges perform the whole of Raw Power as per the original 1973 line-up tonight. It will be strange not seeing Ron Asheton up there in his army jacket with his trademark stance of standing virtually still, dancing his elegant hands over the guitar strings and making an amazing sound like a cheesegrater being rubbed over the frets.

Even better the gig is at smelly old Hammersmith Apollo (nee Odeon) which has a bar that looks like it should be inhabited by extra’s from Star Wars. I am so looking forward to this gig. But I am also trying very hard to resist the urge to dress like this:


or this:


I will probably end up going in something like this:


No not really!


Nice jacket.

    According to recent headlines, it’s Iggy that needs fashion advice.<br/>He’ll catch a chill in this weather undressed like that.

    Hi rr hun. . . Read the review today, (should I say saw too the View of Iggys cleavage butt. . .photo) Lol . Then again great ass for a guy of his age. . .puts shame to guys half his age.<br/><br/>Seriously. . Sounds like went really well, no doubt better there for the real experience .<br/><br/>The one thing I will always remember him for. . .was, there was a music programme he appeared (i was real young at the time) he wore these see through trousers with no underwear. Left nothing to the imagination.<br/><br/>I never saw my Mum jump up out of her seat so fast to switch channels. . .without a word. We darnt say a word either.<br/><br/>My Dad bless him. . ‘I was listening to that. . ‘. . . .lmfo xx
