Iggy Pop to get living legend award
The former Stooges frontman will pick up the gong at the Marshall Classic Rock Roll of Honour awards in November.
Commenting on the accolade, he said the many years of gigging in both "dives and palaces" are "finally adding up to something".
"The other people who have received this award are absolutely awesome and I feel very lucky to be included," Pop continued.
Other rock luminaries to have received the honour in the past include Alice Cooper and Ozzy Osbourne.
Pop is perhaps best known for hits such as The Passenger, Lust for Life, Real Wild Child and I'm Bored.
However, he recently hit the headlines when he fronted an ad campaign for car insurance company Swiftcover.
The Advertising Standards Authority banned the commercial on the grounds that the insurance policy does not cover musicians, even though Pop implied that he had taken out the policy himself.Posted on 16 Sep 2009 20:00 to category : Band / Celebrity News
