"Once in secondary school in the 60’s some class clowns dressed up the tallest guy in school in a trench coat, shades and a fedora and rushed him in to a school dance with great hubbub proclaiming "Del Shannon is here, Del Shannon is here." And until they got to the stage we all believed them, because nobody knew what Del Shannon looked like. He was just a voice on some great records. He had no social ID. By the early 60’s that had really changed with the invasion of The Beatles and The Stones. This time TV was added to the mix and print media too. So you knew who they were, or so you thought anyway. I’m mentioning this because the best way to survive the death or change of an industry is to transcend its form. You’re better off with an identity of your own or maybe a few of them. Something special."
- Iggy Pop, John Peel Lecture, Keynote SpeechBy
Iggy Pop is fearless and honest in his approach to the subject of art and money, and thank god. Very insightful and, in a weird way, soothing.
EDIT: I changed the quote to this post because this one’s a hell of a lot better than the previous.
