Happy Birthday Iggy

Iggy Pop is 60 today.

Just let that sink in a second. Iggy Pop. 60.

This is something that seemingly defies the natural order: like bumblebees flying despite the laws of physics; lightning occurring in a snowstorm; the duck-billed platypus. Given the sheer amount of abuse he heaped upon himself, he should've expired years ago. But he's still kicking, still performing and still singing about his dick.

God Bless You, Mr. Osterberg.

Here he is in 1987, performing "I Wanna Be Your Dog" with Sonic Youth.
