My Vicky Life


there are times i fear brandon will look like iggy pop as he gets older. much like in his wikipedia profile picture. I tried to post the link but it wouldn't let. iggy pop is cool and all but he hasn't aged well.


Iggy Pop is awesome, actually. I was never that big a fan of his, but he lives here in Miami, and last year he was invited to speak at the college where I work. He gave a very candid talk about his life, and about the music business. He really won me over, and the students loved him. I think any rock star would do well to age more like Robert Plant, though, who does show his years, but is still the coolest old person I can think of (with the possible exception of Mick Jagger). Most of the others need to hang it up, but these two can still get away with it. I think that’s the secret to being old and famous, really - having the good taste to know when to bow out. I’m sure that, when the time comes (hopefully not for a long while), our dear Brandon will do the right thing. By the way, have you heard they’re making a movie about the famous New York club CBGBs, and Taylor Hawkins from the Foo Fighters is going to play Iggy Pop? How cool is that?
