Considered by many to be one of the pioneers of punk and metal rock music, Iggy Pop is known for his wild stage antics and as the front man for the band the Stooges, a group that had a major influence on the punk scene of the 1970s. Pop eventually found commercial success with the help of his friend and musician David Bowie. Pop's hit song "Real Wild Child" is an enduring metal rock classic. Singer, musician, songwriter. Born James Osterberg on April 21, 1947, in Muskegon, Michigan. Considered by many to be one of the pioneers of punk music, he adored rock and roll growing up.

He formed his first band in the early 1960s and went through several groups and musical styles before forming the Psychedelic Stooges in 1967 (later known as the Stooges). Their music was experimental and had an aggressive quality to it. While not wildly successful in the commercial sense, the Stooges had an influence on later punk and grunge recording artists and the punk music scene of the late 1970s and 1980s. Osterberg became the band's lead singer and soon renamed himself Iggy Pop. During live performances, Pop engaged in outrageous behavior, often appearing shirtless covered in blood and had been known to cut himself in front of audiences and jump into the crowd from the stage.
