REWIND: Iggy Pop - 'Some Weird Sin'

Iggy Pop turns 67 years old today (April 21). Hard to believe he even made it to 57 to be honest, but the years of alcohol and drug intake has not affected this rock legend's ability to keep on performing and recording, whilst continuing to outlive his friends and bandmates. 

Today's track comes from the first Iggy Pop album I ever bought, which I purchased after becoming obsessed with the title track. 1977's 'Lust for Life' was his second solo release and his second collaboration with David Bowie, following 'The Idiot' earlier in the same year. 

It remains Iggy's most commercially popular album and his highest-charting release in the UK. From it here's the superb 'Some Weird Sin', which was co-written by Bowie and recorded at Hansa Studio by the Wall in Berlin. 

Happy birthday Iggy.
