uh-as only Iggy can do.

And he comes up to one guy

and the guy just hauls off

and just cold-c*cks him.

Just, kaboom!

[audience cheering]


I don't know how many of you

saw us back in 1967

when we first started, you know

but it isn't too,

it isn't too easy being

"The Stooges" sometimes, you know?

(male #2)



You know, after that gig

nobody had to say anything.

It was just, like, everybody had had it.

I mean, we couldn't make a living.

People were throwing sh*t at us

all the time

and everybody was just tired of it.

And so, so, uh..

The-the brothers

moved back to Detroit.

(Scott) Jim never came to

me and said it's over.

I just figured it out myself.

Well, here I am sleepin' on the floor

I guess it's over.

I was basically homeless.

I had a drum set.

I sold it and bought

a one way ticket to Detroit.

Ended up going over to mom's house

and said, "Mom, I'm homeless

I'm broke, I'm hungry."

(Kathy) When the demise

of "The Stooges" occurred

it wasn't really a surprise.

And it goes back

to that full circle of, like

go home, you know, to mom.

After my brothers came home

I remember feeling relieved

and glad.

It was like, phew. You know?

They're safe.

That was the main thing.

That they came home safe

and they were still alive, you know?

(Iggy) That's when I went

home to my parents' trailer.

I was 24.

And, um..

The group had a... uh

a-sp, a sort of

a sputtering demise.

[indistinct chattering]

"Gimme Danger, Little Stranger."

[instrumental music]

Oh give me danger little stranger

And I'll give you a piece

Gimme danger little stranger

And I'll feel your disease

There's nothing in my dreams

Just some ugly memories

Kiss me like the ocean breeze



[indistinct singing]

[music continues]

Now if you will be my lover
