    One thought on “The Stooges: A Journey Through The Michigan Underworld”

    1. We welcome Brett Callwood’s recently issued, updated book on the Stooges also published by the Wayne State University Press. (They sure weren’t publishing any books on the MC5 or Stooges when I was going there). As with his MC5 book, a large portion of the book deals with the lives of the Stooges after the original band broke up and it treats all of the members equally. There are plenty of other books on Iggy but there would not have been an Iggy without the Stooges.In a nice touch, the book [...]

    2. I adore The Stooges. I’m a stupid, drooling Stooges fan. I don’t have, like, Stooges bed sheets and all the bootlegs (who needs ‘em?), but their music sends me. I found this 2008 Stooges bio used for $5 and knew there was no question I would take it home with me.It was while reading the introduction that I got the first inkling that all might not be right. Callwood goes to great lengths to express to you, the reader, how much effort he put into putting this book together. This is bad becau [...]

    3. I was very excited to receive this book and am very glad I read it. However I do not find it to be worth all of the hype. The book reads as it were a magazine article. I understand that Callwood is a music journalist and I thoroughly enjoy reading his pieces in the Metro Times, but this journalistic style of writing was hard to keep my attention throughout the course of the book. I was quite disappointed with the details, or lack of them, as well. Within the first 66 pages Callwood goes through [...]

    4. This is a really good biography of The Stooges band and the impact of the Asheton brothers on the Michigan underground rock scene. The Iggy solo career, largely uneven anyway, is glossed over and instead we get a lot details on such projects as Dark Carnival, Destroy All Monsters, The Farleys, The New Order, etc. with first-hand quotes from Iggy, Ron Asheton, Scott Morgan, Niagara, James Williamson, etc.This American edition has an excellent forward by Alice Cooper that adds much to the Michigan [...]

    5. I really enjoyed this book, a really entertaining romp! It was a fascinating look at an especially unique branch of the Detroit Rock n' Roll family tree, and how that branch extended to Ann Arbor, LA, Australia, the UK and beyond. The pranks and antics where a guilty pleasure, and it was choc full of awesome random details like a surprise apperance of a young Elton John in a gurrilla suit storming the stage at a Stooge show, to hanging with Bowie, to living in apartments with so many roaches tha [...]

    6. This is a really good biography of The Stooges band and the impact of the Asheton brothers on the Michigan underground rock scene. The Iggy solo career, largely uneven anyway, is glossed over and instead we get a lot details on such projects as Dark Carnival, Destroy All Monsters, The Farleys, The New Order, etc. with first-hand quotes from Iggy, Ron Asheton, Scott Morgan, Niagara, James Williamson, etc.

    7. At a page count below 200 pages, this book is a flimsy and rather superficial look at rock's greatest acts. While the author is clearly a fan and did a lot of research, (and touches on a lot of things members of the band did before their reunion), this is not a definitive history.

    8. When it all came together, and how it all flew apart. Genius and art are evanescent things. OOWWWWUUGGHHH!
