I just read that Iggy Pop's latest album of French Pop Covers has been rejected by his label Virgin EMI. He will now attempt to release it on his own.
He released the following statement about the rejection. Got to respect the man for sticking to his guns.
"I've always had a very rough time in the big-time music business. I got kicked off every label. They would have preferred that I do a rock album with popular punks, sort of like "Hi Dad!"" He told reporters in Paris.
