The Stooges by James Marshall

Absolutely, Definitely RAW!

The Stooges are my all time favorite group so I really felt I had to hook you guys up on this article written by James Marshall in that is really complete and interesting. I also included a few clips that I thought you might enjoy as well. It is really important to me to pass the word that punk wasn’t born with the Sex Pistols in the UK as so many people think… Not that it matters so much but it’s always nice to have all the facts… I mostly wanted you to be aware if you are not already, of the immense contribution that Iggy and The Stooges has brought not only to Punk Rock but to music in general…  I also seize the occasion to say how proud I am today that The Stooges finally got the recognition they so hardly fought for and paid such a high price to finally reach the fame they are entitled to.

Open up and read!

I’m now reading ”Open Up and Bleed” by Paul Trynka which is one of the best bio written on Iggy so far (so far is very relevant here because so many have decided to take on the challenge of writing a new one!) so make sure you watch Jim Jarmusch latest documentary that is strictly about The Stooges called ”Gimme Danger” and so forth!! Long Live Iggy and maybe ”Every Fucking Bum Should Wear a Crown” but I say Iggy should be first in line! So here is the story of the Stooges so brilliantly written by James Marshall for Legs McNeil website published in 3 parts. 

I The Three Chord Train to Hell

II The Death and Rise of the Stooges

III Triumph of the Will

You will see how hard it was for The Stooges and how hard the struggle was to keep it together. Very few people would have thought that The Stooges would be back together after so many years but these guys really have been through Hell and back and they are back to testify. I’m pretty sure that the members fo the MC5, both dead and living would be very proud of their little brother band now… So just click on each image and read that breath taking piece written by James Marshall and I hope you enjoy each and every word of it as I did. This is the story of The Stooges by James Marshall.





Also a little documentary about The Stooges that I thought was pretty good.  Maybe not as good as ”Gimme Danger”  but still good enough for me so you might enjoy it as well.
