March 18th brings the release of Post Pop Depression, the new collaborative album from Iggy Pop and Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme. In a new interview with the Guardian, the pair discussed the project. Pop’s relationship with David Bowie, and whether Pop still fights “the temptation to get [his] dick out” on stage.
Most interesting, however, was a subsequent one-on-one interview between Guardian writer Kevin Perry and Homme during which the QOTSA singer launched into a “20-minute soliloquy about his hero.”
“Lemmy is gone. Bowie is gone. He’s the last of the one-and-onlys. It took balls to be him: a little guy with a big dick scaring people in Detroit. Everyone should take a knee for Iggy. He deserves it. He never got [the respect or the acclaim], mostly by his own hand, but he made the shit that’s spawned more bands than any other person, ever. Bring on the statues, you motherfuckers!”
