Iggy-Pop

Real life Iggy Pop

James Newell Osterberg, Jr., better known as Iggy Pop (born on April 21, 1947 in Muskegon, Michigan), is an American singer-songwriter, voice actor, actor and musician who is best known as the lead singer of the rock band The Stooges. He voices himself as the host of Liberty Rock Radio 97.8 in Grand Theft Auto IV.

His AttitudeEdit

In between songs and the Liberty Rock jingle, Iggy often has his opinion about drugs, terrorism, women, today's music, and the time of day/weather in Liberty City. He rarely ends his opinions without throwing in slurs of vulgar language ("have a nice day sucking the corporate cock") ("well it's all shit, just plain shit") ("...a type of t'ai chi called fucking like a bandit. Great exercise man, spiritual.") He also mentions a few times of his station that, "I play what I wanna play and say what I wanna say." and, "I don't give a shit if you don't like these songs 'cause I do!" He thinks of himself as a "freedom fighter" and is laid back against other radio stations that are "held by the balls" (so to speak). Iggy has a contempt for research consultants, believing radio stations focus too much on "image" and "appealing to the kids with ironic imaging and self-deprecating humour", instead advising them to "play some fucking music!"

More sayings between songs have been added on Liberty Rock Radio with the appearance of The Lost and Damned, which can also be heard on The Ballad Of Gay Tony.
