Iggy shares in his John Peel lecture

Iggy Pop, who is known as “the Godfather of punk” for his raw rock songs and raucous dynamic live shows, shared his views on the current state of the music industry. He praised independent labels as “good guys” in his first lecture. In delivering his BBC 6 Music’s John Peel Lecture at the Radio Festival in Salford, England,

Pop said YouTube was “trying to put the squeeze” on indies by trying to get them to sign up to a new agreement or face their videos not being shown on the global site. In a wide-ranging speech, he also took aim at U2 (regarding their recent iTunes giveaway), BitTorrent, Megaupload and fans who do not pay for music.

The annual speech, named after the much missed former BBC Radio 1 DJ and champion of independent and diverse music, has previously been delivered by Pete Townshend, Billy Bragg and Charlotte Church.
