Iggy & the Stooges: Live in Detroit 2003 features Iggy Pop and the original lineup of the Stooges (with bassist Mike Watt subbing for the late Dave Alexander) performing at their first Detroit homecoming in 29 years. It is a full concert of the best songs of the first two Stooges albums from 1969 & 1970. In Iggy Pop's own words, "Here they are, the original Stooges, the band that never bit the weenie. A particular stiff-necked place and time spawned the undying attitude of refusal to compromise. This was Detroit, Michigan, in the late 1960s, when men were men and ears were ears. Now, we are here in the 21st Century, in a "music industry" that bores and annoys, persecutes and depresses. This concert, by the Stooges reunited, does not bore me. I love the groove. I love the songs. I love the vibe. I love the audience. I love this band, and I'm very proud of this high-quality product by the Stooges."
