  3. The Stooges released three studio albums: they followed up “The Stooges” with “Fun House,” in 1970, and “Raw Power,” in 1973. The first two albums are chaotic, desperate, and bold. “The Stooges,” which was produced by John Cale, of the Velvet Underground, is the band at its most economic. By the time that they made “Raw Power,” James Williamson was playing lead guitar and Ron Asheton was on bass, and they had rebranded themselves as Iggy and the Stooges. Dave Alexander had been fired in 1970, for showing up too drunk to perform. (He died in 1975, at age twenty-seven, from complications from pancreatitis.) “Raw Power” was mixed by David Bowie, and it contains two songs, “Gimme Danger” and “I Need Somebody,” that might reasonably be described as ballads. The Stooges fell apart shortly thereafter, for all the usual reasons: drugs, clashing agendas, poor sales. The band’s final performance of the nineteen-seventies was at the Michigan Palace, in Detroit, in 1974. Pop was antagonizing the room, and being pelted with beer, whiskey bottles, bras, and shoes. In 1976, a recording of the show was released, titled “Metallic K.O.” In 1977, Lester Bangs wrote about the record for the Village Voice: “Nobody gets killed, but ‘Metallic K.O.’ is the only rock album I know where you can actually hear hurled beer bottles breaking against guitar strings.” https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2019/09/02/the-survival-of-iggy-pop I remember when The Stooges were new !! )

  11. [QUOTE=Red Ant;n32494014] I didn't say it was. You made a statement claiming Dylan "synthesized several new forms of the 12 bar blues". I can't find any evidence to support that statement, try as I might. I'm not sure why you're bringing up "sloppiness", which I've never had an issue with. I said "clumsily played", which is very different from "sloppy". By saying that, I meant that the grooves are stiff, and the phrasing of the players is stilted and awkward, with perhaps the exception of Al Kooper. [/QUOTE] [CENTER]Little Steven has at least 2 10 minute intros to LaRS !! ) :) there was no bigger Dylan fan than Jimi !! ) Bob raising the bar songwriting extrapolates nicely with Jimi raising the bar playing !! ) :)[/CENTER]
