PostSubject: Iggy: Living Legend Award -- Classic Rock Magazine   Wed Sep 16, 2009 12:54 pm


Classic Rock Magazine, the only music magazine to increase its readership figures in the recent ABCs, has today revealed that punk pioneer Iggy Pop is to be the 2009 recipient of the prestigious ‘Living Legend’ award at the 5th annual Marshall Classic Rock Roll Of Honour Awards. Iggy will collect the trophy on Monday 2 November in London.

The Classic Rock Magazine ‘Living Legend’ award is bestowed on a rock musician for their enduring influence and remarkable achievements in the world of rock music. Iggy Pop will be joining an illustrious list of previous legendary recipients such as Ozzy Osbourne, Jimmy Page, Alice Cooper and Lemmy.

Iggy Pop says, ‘I was surprised and really really honoured to be recognised in this way by Classic Rock, which represents the most creative and sincere music genre of our times. I feel now that all those years of banging away in the dives and palaces of the weird universe of rock are finally adding up to something. The other people who have received this award are absolutely awesome, and I feel very lucky to be included. Thanks to Classic Rock. See you later at the awards!’

Editor-In-Chief of Classic Rock Magazine Scott Rowley added, ‘It’s time to remind people of Iggy the rock ’n’ roll pioneer, one of the creators of hard rock and punk and a legendary performer and icon.’

The nominations for the 2009 Marshall Classic Rock Roll of Honour Awards were announced earlier this year with voting continuing in both Classic Rock Magazine and online. AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Metallica and Anvil are all vying for multiple awards; to cast your vote pick up a copy of Classic Rock Magazine (October issue out today) or visit

Iggy Pop is widely considered one of the foremost innovators of punk rock and acknowledged as one of the most dynamic performers in rock ‘n’ roll. He was the lead singer of seminal act The Stooges and instrumental in developing the ‘hard rock’ or ‘punk rock’ sound. His solo career has produced 15 albums and hit singles such as ‘Lust For Life’ (which enjoyed a renaissance with the 1995 film Trainspotting), ‘Real Wild Child’ and ‘The Passenger’.
