IGGY POP; Motor City Roller Rink Show in 1979
To our amazement... IGGY played the Motor City Roller Rink. On the corner on Van Dyke & 9 Mile in Warren Michigan. What the hell, we thought, so we went. This was during the time of "Dog Food, 1970 something....
a crew of misguided fans brought metal cans of real DOG FOOD and were throwin' 'em at The IG' ala "Metallic KO... they threw a Stroh's"... Iggy don't dig this and makes it known.
Tough Love I'd call it. Ron Asheton says when they played in Europe the crowd would spit at 'em... like rain.
Rock says in Finland they would buy a big old fish and bring 'em to heave at the band, very strange customs...
STOOGES bring out the worst in some people.
Anyway... Show goes on and my brother Tony managed to snap these pix and everyone has the Real Cool Time, deep in the heart of Warren, it ain't that far from Detroit, after all.
These pix by my Brother Tony "The Nail" Dorris at the Motor City Roller Rink Show in 1979 Gary Grimshaw did the sticker, from "instinct" Album Art.
We went and survived,
