THE STOOGES - New Orleans, LA 2003

Regarding the news of this year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, the main thing is this: congrats to Iggy and the Dum Dum Boys. After seven years of nomination sans induction -- a shameful slight outdone only by Black Sabbath's preposterous 10-year wait -- ya finally made it, punks!

Of course, Sir Ig is probably also deserving of induction for his spotty but amazingly long-lived and occasionally brilliant (at least on his first three LPs, The Idiot, Lust for Life and New Values) solo career, so he's got that goin' for him. Which is nice.

Too bad poor old Ron Asheton didn’t make it -- missed out by a year. But hey, that’s the Stooges' luck for ya. If they didn't have bad luck, they'd have no kind at all. (Speaking of which, the MC5 probably deserve a shot as well, but I won’t hold my breath.)

So here, behold the freshly reunited Stooges tearing it up in NOLA. I wanna be your dog...two times!

Much thanks. Somebody said I sound like Iggy at Jam nights so thought I'd check it out and see. Prior to this I'd never heard any of it and am quite impressed. I kinda get where they say it's the beginning of punk but it's still rock and hasn't quite crossed the line. You're invited to follow my blog too if you wish
