The Singles Bar: Iggy and The Stooges, “Burn”

After pummeling record buyers with three albums between 1969-1973, The Stooges quickly dissolved yet left a remarkable legacy as one of the most influential bands of the era. While Iggy went on to a successful solo career, the concept of a full on Stooges reunion seemed pretty implausible, especially in light of original bassist Dave Alexander’s death in 1975.

Guitarist Adam McGrath absolutely shreds […]
