In an interview with Relix magazine (via NY Post) coming out next month, Stooge Iggy Pop hinted that his recent foray into jazz won’t be the only genre experiment for the punk legend. “I am a real threat to cover ‘White Christmas’ this year,” Pop said. “I’m warning you now: I’m ready, cocked and loaded.”
This sounds both awesome and really hard to imagine, but then again, I haven’t heard his new jazz record Preliminaires yet. Pop also hinted that he wants to take a shot at Roy Orbison’s “Only the Lonely” and Frank Sinatra’s version of “Willow Weep for Me.”
Hey Scorsese, I think we’ve got your lead for the Sinatra biopic.
