We take a look at the Legendary Rock Stars That Changed Dramatically Today:

Iggy Pop

Iggy Pop is also known as The Iguana, a nickname that comes from his first adventure in music as a drummer for a local group called The Iguanas; later he played in a blues band called The Prime Movers. But he did not begin to be known until 1967 when he joined The Stooges, the root formation of what would be the next Punk movement. With this group he drew attention for his scandalous live shows: Iggy Pop threw himself into the audience and cut himself in the middle of the performance.

Bob Dylan

In the 1960s he created his own style from the recovery of folk music, to which he added lyrics loaded with symbolism and demands, which made him a leader for the protesting youth of his country. Songs like Blowin ‘in the Wind, Masters of War, or Talkin’ World War III Blues revolutionized world pop and broke new ground for both singer-songwriters and rock bands. In 1965 he turned to electric instruments and began a series of abrupt turns, both stylistic and spiritual, which earned him numerous criticisms from the most purist followers of folk.
