Statement from Mick Rock on the back of print “Iggy Pop, La Scala, London, 1972.”
“I wrote this two or three days after witnessing and shooting the Iggy & The Stooges gig in London, Summer 1972, which produced the now classic Raw power cover: ‘He was elemental, a force of nature. He was like something caged and very angry about it. Something dreamed up by Karl Jung……. Dionysius in Silver, breaking out…..”
