Next up, Iggy. The Igster, who if nothing else, has earned his time in the sun
just for sticking around longer than anybody had good reason to expect, will
get the tribute treatment come August with the Royalty Records release, We
Will Fall: A Tribute to Iggy Pop (tentative title).
The album, which
will feature everyone from Iggy disciples like the Misfits and Joan Jett to
contemporaries Joey Ramone and Jayne/Wayne County, will also be a benefit for
the Music Industry Fights AIDS charity, LifeBeat, to whom Pop will be donating
his mechanical royalties and the label will donate a "significant portion" of
net proceeds. The line-up, so far, looks like this:
1) Misfits, "I Got a
2) Nada Surf, "Sick Of You"
3) Life of Agony, "Lust For
4) Sugar Ray, "Tight Pants
5) Monster Magnet, "1970"
Tetras, "I Need Somebody"
7) Joey Ramone, "Loose"
8) NY Loose, "Gimmie
9) Lunachicks, "The Passenger"
10) Jayne County, "Down on the
Street"/ "Little Doll"
11) Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, "I Wanna Be Your
Dog" (previously unreleased live version, tentative)

USA, "TV Eye" (tentative)
