“Here comes my face, Out of the crowd”

 

We posted a piece back in March celebrating the 40th anniversary of Iggy Pop’s debut solo album, The Idiot. 

 

Well, today is the 40th anniversary of Lust For Life, the follow up to The Idiot. Yes, it’s an Iggy Pop album, but it’s also an important part of David Bowie’s recorded history.

 

Bowie co-wrote seven of the nine tracks on the record and suggested the title Lust For Life, after having composed the riff on a ukulele with the Armed Forces Network staccato TV station ident for inspiration, as the pair watched TV one evening.
