Most of his bass players are still alive - here they are, and the dates they played live with Iggy...

Jimmy Recca - 1970 - 1971, (I think he's still going anyways)
Ron Asheton - 1972 - 1974,
Tony Sales - 1977,
Gary Rasmussen - 1978,
Glen Matlock - 1979,
Billy Rath - 1980,
Mike Page - 1980 - 1983,
Phil Butcher - 1986 - 1987,
Barry Adamson - 1987,
Alvin Gibbs - 1988 - 1989,
Hal Cragin - 1992 - 1999,
Pete Marshall - 2001 - 2003
Mike Watt - 2003 onwards.

But yeah, it's sad that some of his other bass players have died.

Cheers,

Richard

Yo Hello

That's a lot of bass players. Is Iggy hard to work with, fussy, or just not steady as band perse?

The way I saw it, he was with the Iguana's, The Stooges, Bowie's group and then back with the Stooges..... So, what do I know? confused Hmmmm drunken

That they died is sad, but what did they die of? scratch

Laughing

1.Zeke Zettner(1970) - death was drug related.
2.Dave Alexander(68-70) - death was alcohol related.
3.Jackie Clark(1979) - not certain but I think it was cancer.
4.Craig Pike(90-91) - motor accident in London.
5.Mooseman(2000) - drive by shooting in LA.

Actually it is odd that out of all the musicians that Iggy has worked with, and that's a long list, so FEW have died (considering the drink / drugs lifestyle of so many). And sadly, and rather strangely, those who are no more mainly seem to be bass players...

Cheers,

Richard

Hmmmm, Yaaa.... You know, now that you mention it, bass is very earthy and therefore sensitive to life's vibrations...... Hence perhaps a need to escape the insensitivities of life with a band etc Sad

The ride-by shooting seems decidedly MKUltra'ish..... He might not have wanted to obey the Mafia/Illuminati format or something - or he had some kind of an understanding of what was actually potting and spoke when he should not have scratch

Remember the death of John Lennon? He used to be a Pig deLuxe in his life and as soon as he and Yoko Ono were beginning to speak to each other with the respect that Yoko was demanding, Bang... he was assasinated! Quite uncanny!

I have to mention here also that the drummer on the Avenue DVD looked as if he was about to go to slaughter..... not relaxed at all. Perhaps he had been dragged over the coals for not playing as was required by the others????? Unsure Scared.

FYI, Dave Alexander died of pneumonia. But I do believe that his body was brought to that condition by way too much substance abuse.

Have Iggy's bass players been known to spontaneously combust?



I hope that isn't too obscure.
