    Iggy and The Stooges at Hard Rock Calling, Hyde Park

    It was fantastic to see Iggy Pop and The Stooges play live again at Hyde Park at the Hard Rock Calling Festival. Iggy is such a force of Nature. When Paul McCartney sang When I’m Sixty Four he sang of holidays in the Isle of Wight (if it’s not too dear). He made little mention…
