Praise

“Paul Trynka gets under Iggy Pop’s skin to reveal the real Jim Osterberg. Open Up and Bleed is a hugely impressive feat of research and insights, packed full of yarns that’ll make your hair stand on end.” —Barney Hoskyns, author of Hotel California

“There’s plenty of detail on the creative process behind Iggy’s music . . . but inevitably, the best parts are the blackly funny tales of Iggy at his worst.” —Rolling Stone

“An obsessively detailed and compulsively readable biography that is as high-energy and entertaining as its subject.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“The author’s love for a flawed-but-deep-down-okay dude, plus his amazing eye for detail, make this one of the finest rock bios of recent memory: Music and pop culture fans will dig it.” —Kirkus (starred review)
