(Gibson) After nearly a half-century in the music business, Iggy Pop appears to be contemplating retirement. As reported by Billboard, in a wide-ranging chat at this year's Grey Music Seminar in Cannes, the punk pioneer elaborated on previous hints that his latest album, Post Pop Depression, might be his last.

"The less I can do, the better off I am," said Pop. "Giving up, or giving ground… those are necessary, tactical situations that come up, that arise as you live longer and longer. Not to mention that you've got more of a history, too. In my case, I've kinda gotten a pass on that, because I feel better in general now than I did when I was 18, 19, 21."

Meanwhile, the singer's "Post Pop Depression Tour" has moved to Europe, where dates will run through October. Pop says he and his band have evolved into a well-oiled machine. "When we did our first show together, [we were trying] to be really proper," he says. Read more here.
