  • Johnny shares his exciting story of David Bowie and Iggy Pop: "Someone posted the link from the news station that show up when we put Iggy Pop's hands in cement. Jimmy comes up in the beginning of the reel and gives me a hug. This was the night that David Bowie was in town and showed up. The news had already left and didn't get a shot of David. Iggy and David eat dinner together and David, and Iggy, and DJ Steve Kostan and myself ended up in the office chating for a while.
