Iggy & Debbie
When I was a kid, into punk in the '70s, I thought Debbie Harry was the most beautiful and exotic woman I'd ever seen. I had photos of her ripped from some music magazine on my bedroom wall, dressed in a leopardskin catsuit (is that an oxymoron?). I probably liked her more than I liked Blondie's music, if I'm honest (though I like their music well enough).
And next to her on my wall I had a photo of Iggy when he was doing all that bloodletting on stage in the '70s.
I was playing 'Lust for Life' yesterday and my 11 month old son just started jiggling about excitedly to the music! I was delighted.
My wife keeps playing him Coldplay, but I think I'm winning ...
