Anton Corbijn Joy Division 1980
Do you cry out in your sleep?
All my failings exposed…
Gets a taste in my mouth
As desperation takes hold.
Why is it something so good
Just can’t function no more?
Love, love will tear us apart again.
—Ian Curtis, “Love Will Tear Us Apart” 1979
Anton Corbijn Iggy Pop 1996
“I’ve never had any sort of macho revulsion of fags, but Bowie and I — never, never, never, never. Everybody would think that, but I never saw him be that way anyway. I’ll tell you this. That guy got more p-u-s-s-y. I couldn’t believe it. Talk about a bitch magnet. Damn! Actresses, heiresses, waitresses, skateresses. And me? I was just left holding my dick most of the time. I had this short haircut, and I looked like a duck. But I got lucky sometimes…” Iggy Pop, on rumors that he and David Bowie had been lovers, 2003.
