Happy birthday, James Williamson

Gotta say, I would not have envied the man who had to fill in the guitar slot for Ron Asheton, when Iggy and management forced him into playing bass, but damn if James Williamson didn’t step up with a force every bit worthy of The Stooges legacy. Raw Power, baby! While everyone knows that classic, less recognized is the Pop/Williamson follow up from four years later, Kill City, which features my favorite post-Stooges Iggy cut, No Sense of Crime.
