I have VIP tickets. Iggy and the Stooges will be going on an extended leave after headlining the C2SV Festival in San Jose on Saturday night. Who knows, this could be the last Stooges show ever and includes James Williamson and Mike Watt.
I grew up with the Stooges, or we all grew up together, something like that. Their music was a backdrop to my life during the insane late 60’s – early 70’s and am really glad to finally get to see them live.
The Stooges – Dirt – Live in Detroit. Maybe my favorite Stooges song ever.
Iggy Pop & The Stooges – 1970 (Goose Lake 1970)
Iggy & The Stooges – Search And Destroy (Live at Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame)
Williamson is also a respected Silicon Valley engineer, will deliver a keynote speech at C2SV.
In February, he’ll be inducted into the Engineering Hall of Fame at California Polytechnic University. “To my knowledge, I am the only holder of a Rock n Roll HOF and an Engineering HOF,” Williamson says.
