The Stooges were an influential rock band from Ann Arbor, Michigan who
were active from 1967 to 1974. Their sound was a primal mixture of blues and
psychedelic rock highlighted by loud, charged guitars. Formed by brothers
Ron and Scott Asheton, Dave Alexander, and infamous front man Iggy Pop,
The Stooges were known for their intense, energized, and transgressive live
performances. Fellow Michigan band MC5 were both an inspiration to and
supporters of The Stooges, helping them get signed to Elektra Records. They
produced three immensely infuential albums, adding guitarist James Williamson
for the last LP from their classic era, Raw Power. The Stooges announced their
final performances after the death of both Asheton brothers. All punk starts here.
