See Rare Photos From ‘TOTAL CHAOS: The Story of the Stooges’ – Rolling Stone

A new book, TOTAL CHAOS: The Story of the Stooges, tells the band’s revolutionary story through many never-before-published photos and extensive interviews that author Jeff Gold conducted with Iggy Pop. It also contains contributions from Johnny Marr, Josh Homme, Dave Grohl, Joan Jett and Jack White, among others.

The tome is set to come out on November 15th via White’s Third Man Books. In anticipation of its release, the publisher has shared many rare photos with Rolling Stone, with Pop’s commentary from the book. Here is an excerpt:

Stooges, Circa 1968
The Stooges played the Ann Arbor Armory in April 1968 – a gig where Iggy wore “whiteface.” “This looks like one of our very first shows in which I started fronting, and I’ve given Ron the guitar,” Pop said, looking at the photo. “[I’m] barefoot. I had a perm gone wrong. I had long hair and I thought it would look more wild permed, but I didn’t know that would shorten it. I had no eyebrows, which was a physical problem. And we had a little 20-minute set worked out.”
