Behind The Poster: Iggy Pop Agora Ballroom 1977

PURCHASE HERE Iggy Pop’s The Idiot LP wasn’t just his solo debut forty-four years ago; the 1977 album marked his return after three years of laying low. Though credited solely to Pop, The Idiot was a collaboration between Iggy and his friend, David Bowie. The record featured an enormous contribution from Bowie in the form of production, composition and, possibly, as a musician (no official list of line-up credits has ever been published). Iggy has attributed his rebirth to Bowie, who he’s said “resurrected” him, and he’s spoken many times over the years of his appreciation for Bowie’s faith in him, and for his kindness. In...

In December 1968, the Texas-born Joplin left the San Francisco-based Big Brother after two psychedelic blues albums and a few months after Cheap Thrills hit No. 1. Less than a year later, she released her solo debut, I Got Dem Ol’ Kozmic Blues Again Mama!

Behind the Poster: David Bowie 1976 Isolar Tour

When Bowie re-emerged forty-five years ago in support of one of his most significant works, Station to Station, it was as the performance persona the Thin White Duke, an icy, Mittel-European persona reflecting Bowie’s dark side. The Thin White Duke dressed in black pants and vest and a white shirt, a far, far cry from his costumes in the glitter days.
