Iggy Pop on Jim Morrison

“Jim Morrison was trying to be the same person that the musicians in the juke joints were, but they were that much more natural without much prompting. But for a white boy whose dad was an admiral or whatever he was, in 1960s America, you really needed some sort of psychic rocket fuel to propel you out of the straightjacket of the existence that was gonna be planned for you. Jim Morrison was playing with something in a certain exaggerated way that connected to me.”  – Iggy Pop, discussing The Doors influence on him
