Glen Matlock “got a bit fed up” of seeing Iggy Pop’s penis

How many times have you seen Iggy Pop’s penis? You’ve lost count, right? I honestly couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve seen Iggy Pop’s penis and I’ve never even been to see him play live, which is where it most commonly makes an appearance.

Now, if that’s true for me, the numbers must be through the roof for people who regularly attend his shows. But just imagine what it must be like if you play in his band. Actually, don’t, because Glen Matlock of Sex Pistols fame played with Pop for a whole year in 1979 and still hasn’t quite shaken those memories off.

“The problem with flashing your willy on stage is that you have to get ready to flash your willy on stage”, he tells The Times in a new interview. “And he always did it in front of me. I got a bit fed up with seeing it, to be honest. It’s not that impressive”.

Unimpressive, perhaps. But does the fact that we all expect to see it somehow make it legendary? I don’t know. The way we’re talking about it, it almost seems to have its own life separate from Pop himself. Not literally separate, obviously. No one give it a TV show or anything.
