About this item
Third Man Books is excited to announce one of the most anticipated books of the year, about one of the most influential bands of all time…The Stooges. TOTAL CHAOS: The Story of the Stooges / As Told by Iggy Pop is the first time the story of this seminal band has been told entirely in Pop’s own words. Author Jeff Gold and contributor Johan Kugelberg, noted music historians and collectors, spent two days with Pop at his Miami home, sharing with him their extensive Stooges collection and interviewing the legendary singer. Pop’s candid, bare-all responses left them with the almost unbelievable tale of the band he founded - the alternately tragic and triumphant story of a group who rose from youth, fell prey to drugs, alcohol and music biz realities, collapsed and nearly 30 years later reformed, recording and touring to great acclaim. In 2010, The Stooges, credited with having invented punk rock, were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Their continuing influence can be felt today in the shape and sound of rock-n-roll music.
Jeff Gold, Johan Kugelberg and editor/contributor Jon Savage are among the most respected music authors and historians working today. Their efforts include numerous acclaimed and best-selling books and a Grammy Award. TOTAL CHAOS stands as a work for all fans of the band and rock music to draw inspiration. Including an absolute treasure-trove of rare and unseen photographs, TOTAL CHAOS is a book that show AND tells the story of The Stooges. A metallic k.o. of only the best kind.
