Iggy Pop says he won’t stage-dive anymore

Iggy Pop started his musical career more than six decades ago and since the beginning is known for his wild performances that included among other things, the act of stage-diving. But now, the 75 year-old singer said in an interview with NME that he won’t jump into the crowd anymore because he is too “rickety” for that nowadays.

“I’ve left the proscenium a few times if the crowds were too dull just to whip ’em up, but mostly I didn’t have to. I won’t do the dives again, I’ve managed to survive it mostly and I’m too rickety for that now,” Iggy Pop said.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
