Almost eight months to the day since the passing of David Bowie, the Godfather of punk, and Bowie’s longtime close friend Iggy Pop, has dedicated an entire two hour radio show to remembering the late legend.
Bowie and Iggy had an incredibly close and often notorious friendship over the years. During the latest episode of his BBC Radio 6 program Iggy Confidential, the Post Pop Depression artist spent two hours sharing his favourite songs from the late star, as well as sharing some of his favourite memories and anecdotes from their time together.
Of the playlist, he explains, “I took out a piece of paper and a pen and remembered what I liked at different times.” Taking the listener through each moment in his own personal history as he went along, it’s a moving, revealing and beautiful tribute. If you’ve got two hours to spare, it’s absolutely worth a listen. He takes us through many never-before-heard stories of the pair’s experiences with drugs, women, hamburgers, Frank Zappa and more, in an hilarious and at times, heartbreaking program.
