As a longtime music journalist, I covered several his concerts and album reviews starting with Scary Monsters. I was fortunate to meet him briefly at a couple of music industry events. At one New York City function, I was even allowed to ask two questions for an Iggy Pop feature piece I was working on at the time and he graciously anwered the questions. Then a few years later I attended the Glass Spider press conference in New York City and a few more events followed including the Earthling, Heathen and Reality tours. I always enjoyed covering the latest on his life and career, for various entertainment print and online publication.
