Detroit music veterans Iggy Pop and Don Was will be coming home next month -- to talk about rather than play music.
The two will be part of a special Living Histories Live presentation on Oct. 23 at the Majestic Theatre in Detroit, sponsored by the Grammy Foundation. Scott Goldman, senior vice-president of the foundation and MusiCares, will interview each of them, and the chats will be filmed for the foundation's Living History archive, which so far houses remembrances from more than 200 artists and other music industry figure.
Pop, an Ypsilanti native who fronted the legendary band the Stooges, and Was, who grew up in Oak Park and founded Was (Not WAs) before becoming a Grammy Award-winning producer and president of Blue Note Records, worked together on Pop's 1990 album "Brick By Brick." Pop will be releasing a new album, "Post Pop Depression: Live at the Royal Albert Hall" on Oct. 28 and is the subject of a new Jim Jarmusch documentary, "Gimme Danger."
The new book "Total Chaos: The Story of the Stooges/As Told By Iggy Pop," is due out this fall as well.
Tickets for the program are $35. Call 313-833-9700 or visit majesticdetroit.com for more details.
