Mike Watt has always been a huge Madonna fan. When it was announced that she would be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, there was a bit of an uproar. Madonna? Rock and Roll? The solution was obvious. Trot some Stooges up onstage and blow the ears off the doubters. It worked like a charm.
Watt and Thurston Moore once put together a goof act called “Ciccone Youth”. Download it today. You have not lived until you have heard the best bass player on Earth cover “Into the Groove.” I’m serious.
Madonna does rock, and last night Iggy sat on Justin Timberlake’s lap to spit the proof into her face. Should be on YouTube as we speak. Good times.
