Arcana Hosts A Book Signing with Jeff Gold
November 19, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
On Saturday, November 19th from 5:00 to 7:00PM, please join Arcana: Books on the Arts for the celebration of the publication of Total Chaos: The Story Of The Stooges / As Told By Iggy Pop, meet their longtime pal Jeff Gold, quaff refreshments, and see an extraordinary one-day-only exhibition of rare Stooges memorabilia.
Author Jeff Gold and contributor Johan Kugelberg – noted music historians and collectors both – spent two days with Iggy Pop at his Miami home, sharing with him their extensive Stooges collection and interviewing the legendary singer. Pop’s candid, bare-all responses left them with the almost unbelievable tale of the band he founded as a teenager in Michigan nearly fifty years ago. It is the alternately tragic and triumphant story of a group who rose from youth, fell prey to drugs, alcohol, and music biz realities, collapsed, and nearly thirty years later reformed to record and tour once again to great acclaim. In 2010 The Stooges, credited with having invented punk rock, were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Their continuing influence can be felt today in the shape and sound of rock ‘n’ roll music.
Jeff Gold, Johan Kugelberg, and editor / contributor Jon Savage are among the most respected music authors and historians working today. Their efforts include numerous acclaimed and best-selling books and a Grammy Award. Published by Third Man Books, Total Chaos stands as a work for all fans of the band and rock music to draw inspiration from. Including an absolute treasure-trove of rare and unseen photographs, it is a metallic k.o. of only the best kind that shows AND tells the story of The Stooges.
