I visited Iggy in the studio. Somebody showed us a clipping with a personal ad, a young woman looking for ‘a man with the mind of Leonard Cohen and the body of Iggy Pop.’ We wrote a polite letter suggesting we meet sometime, both signed it and placed my telephone number under it. The girl answered. Unfortunately, her only interest was in leading profound conversations.
The Iggy Pop Version
Years ago, some girl wrote in the classifieds saying she was looking for a man ‘with the poetic sensitivity of Leonard Cohen and the raw power of Iggy Pop,’ so Leonard tried to get me to set up a three-way with her [laughs]. He said, ‘Dude, we can give her both!’
I've recently found the paperwork in my archives. I had a friend who worked at the paper at the time (The Bay Guardian) who shared this with me. I figure enough time has passed.
Geez guys…like you don’t get enough female attention?
Couldn’t save some neurotic wimmins for the rest of us non icons?
