I thought this was pretty cool.

This talks about Jim Morrison and later on in the story it talks about Iggy Pop

very cool article and lots of comments from people who were there - here's a comment from a guy who saw our boys at Goose Lake:

Brian Maiville I came to U of M the year after that concert, but heard the story. Pretty consistent with the Morrison persona. Other great concerts and musical events have to include the Free John Sinclair Rally. Really bad acoustics but a great assembly of performers. The Jazz and Blues Festivals were the best. Leon Thomas was singing with Pharoah Sanders. I think this was the '72 festival. They did Love Supreme and The Creator has a Master Plan among others, but those songs were other worldly. I doubt that you could find a more influential group of musicians in any one event as those that performed in '72. I missed the '70 Blues Festival because I was at Goose Lake. Iggy was there along with 200,000 other people. After being heckled at some point, he yelled, "Some of you like us and some of you hate us. I want the people who like us to line up over here and the people who hate us to line up over there, and we're going to have a big f-ing fight." I remember starting to pack up my stuff to get the heck out of there. The repercussions of his challenge were mind boggling. Thankfully not many people paid attention. As a personal favorite concert, I have to say Mountain at Hill Auditorium was one sonically memorable event. Somehow they managed to balance the sound at an incredibly high decibel level. Reduced hearing acuity; the souvenir you can carry with you forever.

Thanks for this. There exists a story of that Doors show told by Iggy in person. It's in an old SPIN magazine, something like August 1990 - the one with Jim Morrison on the cover. Iggy-related story there is page-long, I think. He reminisces that there was a hottie in front of him, and he spent the whole of the show grinding against her ass Smile and there is another story from that show, in "Please Kill Me" book.
