I've been thinking about htis lately. I heard in interviews about Iggy's son Eric. But I've never heard anything mch more about him except that he's a musicsian too... Why dosen't he have his fathers name Osterberg for example?

Answers?

Discuss guys! Smile

He used to work for Iggy. He was a common sight in the late nineties dragging Iggy out of the pit and protecting him from fans.

Well that was what I guessed, Just like Lemmy Kilmister... He haven't been much of a father for him or what?... Only seen two pictures of him, one where he's a little kid together with the IG and James Osterberg Sr. And one where's got really long hair...

Was he a guard at the ninties gigs?

I think Iggy fired Eric during a squabble after an appearance on 'Letterman' (He played 'Mask', I think). They didn't speak afterwards for years, but seem to have reconciled based on recent interviews.

I don't know the reason, but there was a pretty well-known falling out. Iggy did'n't see his grand-kid until recently. I'm piecing together editorial comments in two recentish Iggy interviews, spaced out over a few years.

Iggy doesn't seem the Ward Cleaver type and Eric may have some issues. (I sure would!). Iggy introduced Eric to the seedy NY night-life, including a few groupies, when he was just a kid. His mom could'nt handle him at that point, so sent him over to Ig for a few months. This was during his down-n-out 'Party' era.

Yeah, I like the demos too (The song "Wind") is great... I love Brick By Brick, I think itś one of the coolest Iggy`albums ever. I think "Undefeated" is great, the only crappy song I can think of is "My baby wants to rock n roll"...I always skip that one.

Eric used to come over to visit my then boyfriend christian when I lived in hollywood(early 90's). He was sweet. very tall. handsome like his dad. he worked for his dad (roadie/equipment/body guard) stuff. he used to frequent a club called "English Acid." He liked to play pool and I remember one time we were real messed up on some combination of substances and Christian called Eric and he came and picked us up and took us safely home. Fond memories of him. I think his dad loves him dearly, but we rebellious youths have to be let alone sometimes to find our own bottoms. Kiss!

Man you guys are funny. Eric is a friend of mine and most of what you guys said isnt true. He never really "worked" for Iggy rather worked for himself through Iggy's connections as a roadie. He has never really spoken to Iggy past or present or sang anything with him. He is just an ordinary guy living with his wife and now 3 children in California.
