Iggy Pop issued a statement in regards to Fat Possum Records releasing Ready To Die, their latest release and their first since their 1973 Raw Power album.
“My motivation in making any record with the group at this point is no longer personal. It’s just a pig-headed fucking thing I have that a real fucking group, when they’re an older group, they also make fucking records. They don’t just go and twiddle around on stage to make a bunch of fucking money….”
