Did you know that two of the biggest and most provocative music icons of the 70s, were also very close friends? David Bowie and Iggy Pop met in the early 1970s when Bowie went on to produce The Stooges’ 1973 LP Raw Power.
Their close relationship, charged with fame and drug problems continued for years, while in 1976 they moved to West Berlin where they lived together and collaborated for various projects. This musical power combo resulted in two Iggy Pop albums The Idiotand and Lust For Life, with David Bowie producing them. Bowie also played keyboards in Pop’s live performances, some of which are featured on the live album TV Eye, while Pop did backing vocals on Low, one of Bowie’s most significant albums, released in 1978.
