Iggy Pop plans another Stooges tour

Iggy Pop has spoken about reforming the Stooges five months after the death of the band's guitarist and bassist Ron Asheton. Speaking to the Australian, Pop said that he had been in contact with guitarist James Williamson who played on the Stooges' legendary album Raw Power.

"There is always Iggy and the Stooges, the second growth of the band," Pop said. "I had a meeting in LA last week with James [Williamson]. It was the first time we had seen each other in 30 years. So we talked about doing something together. Raw Power would be the repertoire."

Raw Power, whose eight songs were co-written by Pop and Williamson, was released back in 1973 and was a seminal influence on the punk scene. Former Minutemen Mike Watt is expected to continue on bass if the Stooges decide to go on tour again.
