(Jim) If I hit here,

you'll get all three cameras.

- Right?

- Yeah. Yeah.

- Okay?

- Yeah. Great.

- We're ready?

- Yeah.

(Jim)

It's June 9th.

We are in an undisclosed location.

We are interrogating

Jim Osterberg,

about "The Stooges",

the greatest rock and roll band ever.

[gong booming]

(male #1) You know,

uh, one of the things

that amazes me, uh

is that, um, they do not go about this

in a show business way,

for instance, when somebody says

"Here's an act,"

and they announce the act

they may very well tune up

for ten or fifteen minutes

before they ever play the first number

that they're going to play.

Uh, and the kids don't seem

to mind this at all.

They, uh, they watch it all and,

uh, listen to the tune up

and listen to them check the speakers.

And I think we've got

some action coming up now.

Uh, we'll leave Bob Waller

for the moment

and go to the stage and listen

to "Iggy and the Stooges!"

...TV eye on me

She got a TV eye

Oh she had a TV eye on me

No

[instrumental music]

No!

[crowd screaming]

(male #1) There goes Iggy

right into the crowd!

- Down!

- We've lost audio on him.

Bob Waller is down

in the field with the crowd.

I don't know just where,

but we'll find him.

[acoustic feedback]

[man growling]

[women whooping]

[people clamoring]

[man yelling]

[man howling]

(Iggy)

Riots in the motor city!

It was tough.

And we were stumbling and bumbling

and finally

the record company didn't even

bother to have anything to do with us

but we, we had agents

and different managers, uh

who tried to see if they could penetrate

the tangled web of our, of our career

and most of them dropped out in horror.

And we bumbled around America

playing raggedly.

We started lookin',

uh, dirtier and dirtier

and skinnier and skinnier

and more and more used.

And we were getting worse and worse.

We're sinkin' fast

into semi-oblivious gigs.

Some people still liked us.

Some gigs I could

get it together to sing

some I couldn't.

Some gigs, I, we'd show up on time

some we didn't.

Up-upsetting people

usually because of me, wherever we went.

[instrumental music]

Butt fuckers

Cock suckers

Wanna bang suck and run my world

(James) The band was

really deteriorating

very rapidly at that point.

So we went out

and played some gigs and stuff

but all kinds of stuff happened.

I mean, we had to play a job

with Steve Mackay on drums.

Which is really wild because, you know

Steve said he could play drums,

but he couldn't.

[laughing]

And s-so, so, we..

We needed the money so bad

we just let him play.

Oh, you want me to tell that story?

Iggy would call a song

and start doing it

and I'd start doing a beat.

And he'd come back and grab

the sticks out of my hand

and go over to the floor tom

and he would beat the beat out.

And then I would know what the beat was

and then I'd finish the song.

And he did that with every single song.

And the crowd's throwing bottles at him

and they're saying, "Come on, Iggy

"let's see you puke, motherfucker!

Ah, fuck you, fuck you."

And, like, you know,

givin' him all the abuse.

(Iggy) Thank you very much to the person

who threw this glass bottle at my head.

Nearly killed me, but you missed again

so you have to keep trying next week.

[glass shattering]

(James) Leading up to

the Michigan Palace job

was, was, what I referred

to it as a death march.

So they decided to book us

in a little club outside of Detroit

uh, called The Rock and Roll Farm.

Turns out it's a biker bar.

Here comes Iggy, out in the audience

confronting people in-the,
