Fans of The Stooges will soon get an unprecedented behind-the-scenes tale about the band’s formation and time together. Jack White’s Third Man Books, a subset of his label Third Man Records, will release TOTAL CHAOS: The Story of The Stooges/ As Told by Iggy Pop.
Author Jeff Gold and contributor Johan Kugelberg met with Iggy at his Miami home, where over two days he recounted founding The Stooges, as well as the issues that eventually tore them apart before they reunited 30 years later and toured once more. Besides Iggy’s contribution, the 300-page book features a “treasure trove” of rare photos. White and Joan Jett also contributed to the book, among others in the music industry.
“It was a rare privilege to sit with Iggy as he downloaded the story of The Stooges. He’s an incredible storyteller with a fantastic memory and a great sense of humor, and he held nothing back,” Gold said, according to the press release.
TOTAL CHAOS will be available this winter.
