Iggy Pop net worth: Iggy Pop is an American singer, songwriter, musician, and actor who has a net worth of $15 million. Iggy Pop gained his net worth by being the lead vocalist and songwriter for The Stooges. Born James Newell Osterberg, Jr., in 1947, in Michigan, Iggy Pop has made a name for himself as a dynamic and shocking performer on the rock-n-roll stage. Although he is often referred to as the "godfather" of punk rock, Pop's music has enclosed a variety of styles over the years, including pop, hard rock, jazz and blues. He first became known as "Iggy" in high school, when he was a drummer for the local blues band called The Iguanas. But he rose to fame as vocalist of influential seminal punk group The Stooges (Pop and the other surviving members of the group reunited in 2003), having become known for his unpredictable stage antics ever since the late 1960s. Although his popularity has fluctuated through the years due to his longtime battle with heroin, Pop managed to keep his career afloat with the help of his friend and frequent collaborator, David Bowie. The duo stands behind the creation of rock anthems like Lust for Life (1977) and Real Wild Child (Wild One) (1986), as well as hit songs from his 1997 album The Idiot, China Girl and Nightclubbing. As for his other iconic singles include The Passenger (1977, a song by Iggy Pop and Ricky Gardiner) and Candy (1990, a duet with Kate Pierson of The B-52's). In addition to his music career, Pop also wrote a candid autobiography and starred in critically acclaimed films. Over the years he has emerged as a prolific and pioneering force in music living the tumultuous rock star lifestyle.
