New Year’s Eve, December 31, 1973 – Academy of Music

The seeds of Iggy Pop's stage persona were sown when he saw The Doors perform in 1967 at the University of Michigan and was amazed by the stage antics and antagonism displayed by singer Jim Morrison.[ Morrison's extreme behavior, while performing in a popular band, inspired the young Pop to push the boundaries of stage performance. Pop is considered the first performer to do a stage-dive, which he started at a concert in Detroit. Other exploits included rolling around in broken glass, exposing himself to the crowd and vomiting on stage.

In 1968 Iggy signed with Elektra Records, following in the footsteps of The Doors, who were Elektra's biggest act at the time (reportedly, Pop called Moe Howard to see if it was alright to call his band "The Stooges," to which Howard responded by merely saying "I don't care what they call themselves, as long as they're not the Three Stooges!" and hung up the phone).

In 1971, Iggy Pop and David Bowie met at Max's Kansas City, a place many of us adjourned to after shows at the Academy of Music. Pop's career received a boost from his relationship with Bowie when Bowie decided in 1972 to produce an album. The recording sessions produced the rock landmark Raw Power. These photos were taken in 1973 in New York.
