Iggy Pop Explains Why Jack White Didn't Produce Stooges Album

(Classic Rock) Iggy Pop says a tense phone conversation scuppered any chance of Jack White producing a Stooges album. Pop and White talked about the possibility, only for White to insist he take control of an entire album while Iggy had just a few tracks in mind.

In a previously unreleased interview with Steve Miller - author of Detroit Rock City: The Uncensored History of Rock 'n' Roll in America's Loudest City - Pop explains how close a Stooges/White project came to happening.

Pop says: "I heard he wanted to do it and I thought that could work in the group's favor for a couple of reasons, but I didn't want to do a whole record, I just wanted to do a few tracks.

"So I offered him a few tracks and Jack being Jack, said, 'well I don't want to do that, I want to do a whole thing.' At one point I felt I was just about ready to do it and we were having a conversation and the last thing he had to say was, 'Okay I'll call you up when I have time.'

"I put down the phone and part of me was like, 'f*** you kid.'" More.
