DETROIT — Rock pioneer Iggy Pop and his band the Stooges have lost their gear after their rental truck was stolen following a concert in Montreal.
Stooges road manager Eric Fischer says the 15-foot truck that was stolen Monday contained the group's instruments and stage gear. He tells the Detroit Free Press that the lost items are worth tens of thousands of dollars.
The Stooges are in the middle of a tour with stops in Belgium, Britain, Canada, the Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Russia, Serbia, Spain and the U.S.
Pop is considered widely influential in the development of punk and heavy metal rock.
The 61-year-old was born in Muskegon, Michigan, and began his music career in the Detroit area.
