James Williamson Interviewed About ‘Kill City,’ The Stooges

In an interview with, Stooges guitarist James Williamson talked about the reissue of “Kill City” and his work as part of The Stooges.

The trouble with it is that style, it works for me, but it’s difficult to work with a band … It was only the Stooges who saw the possibilities in that. I really have to hand it to Iggy because it was only Iggy who could make enough sense out of it to help me mold it into a song that he could actually sing and it had a structure.” Read more at
