"i want to be a greek!"
iggy pop

ok
we got no jobs, got no money, our politicians suck big time,
the poor pay their blood on taxes while the rich party careless in luxury,
many people round the globe are made to think we're the world's trash
[which ain't exactly true for all of us, and might also be considered as a medal],
but, somehow, we still get to see iggy+the stooges perform in a way that, few other places do.
most importantly, athina can still really make iggy happy.
i consider both as huge privileges.

are we just lucky? does the ig get a kick out of "misfits",
having spent a great deal of his life as a world's forgotten boy?
is it the athenian sky that we do our best to polute but strangely remains magical?
don't know and don't care; i just went with the big moment's flow.
i've been a fan for more than 30 years and i've never seen iggy smiling throughout the whole show.
i mean, he was smiling even while singing "i need somebody", which isn't the jolliest of songs, right?
[same for the rest of the band, with the magnificent Mike Watt giving a show of his own and beloved Steve having a ball]

watching iggy and the guys giving it all they have + something more and, most of all, enjoying themselves so much
is all i'd ever wish for them.

i wish them to go on making more people happy along their way

"the stooges fight misery in the open"


p.s. various clips on youtube, including louie ["i fucked her in athens, i fucked her in myconos, i fucked her in thessaloniki Smile
will come back with some info + photos.

They did Louie Louie? Cool.

They sound pretty intense in the youtube clips. Great stuff. Unfortunately Scott is still not back on drums. Does anybody have any news on Scott? Will he return to touring with the band?

here's a nice one. no matter passing time, the eyes remain just the same. and a true face always shines.
ain't it pure joy to see those blue eyes smiling?
that's exactly how the gig went, start to finish. just a beautifull -75 minutes long- moment.
more photos to follow soon.

here's another review + some cool photos [scroll down] for you guys, especially for my bro neven ;-)

just to give you a taste of the show's aftermath, here's a translation of the review's first line:

"rock'n'roll with die when iggy pop decides to leave this vain world, raising his middle finger to the sky"

and also in the heart of a forest [one of the few unburned ones in attica].
an almost full moon came up the hill right at the beginning of "open up and bleed".
pity the band couldn't see it, but from the crowd's view it was awsome.
so, yes, it was a pretty cool set for a real cool show.

@ fabrice

i suppose you mean about the "setlist" photo posted by me above. that's actually the back of a t-shirt i made for fun, so no "no sense of crime and gimme some skin" [although i'd love both songs to be played]. the real setlist+photos can be seen here:
