I had never heard of the Classic Rock Roll of Honour Awards before recently, but you put Stooge Iggy Pop on the bill and before you know it Queen’s Brian May, Slash, Ronnie Wood, Pete Townshend, and a host of other rock stars will show up. That’s what happened at the ‘09 Honour Awards, reports Music-News.
“It’s been a long dinner, so I’m not gonna whip out my dick,” Iggy Pop said while accepting his Living Legend award. “Alright, you know, thank you to everybody who has strong feelings about music so that when you hear something you don’t like you wanna fucking kill somebody and when you hear something you like you wanna fuck everybody.”
Now that’s an acceptance speech! Be sure to check out this awesome photo set of Iggy with his new golden statue.
Iggy may be 62 years old, but he won’t be retiring anytime soon, as the upcoming Stooges with James Williamson gig at London’s All Tomorrow’s Parties won’t be the only show on the way from the original Raw Power lineup. “We’re going to be doing a one-off show in Brazil in a few weeks,” Pop told BBC, “but the real touring starts next year.”
