I’ve had a really good time with this album. Everything about it is so god dang good. Look at that guy!

So: if you’re ever feeling bummed out, just put this baby on. Try it. What’s the worst that could happen?

I used to play ‘The Idiot’ a lot when I was a cab driver in San Francisco. One night, me and this dude were driving around near Powell Street, and I said, “Hey, isn’t this great? We’re just a couple of jerks listening to Iggy Pop on a Saturday night.”

The guy nodded and said, “It’s pretty good.”

I said, “Pretty good? Baby, this is as good as it gets.”
