Gimme Danger, the new documentary about the Stooges, premiered at Cannes on Friday. The film, directed by Jim Jarmusch, pays tribute to the Stooges and tells their story through new footage and previously unseen photos.

Iggy Pop was on hand for the premiere and took part in a question and answer session.  During the talk he discussed music and technology, revealing he's not a fan of electronic music and the digital music age:

"The digital age has made collecting money so incredibly efficient. When we started our band we didn’t know what publishing was. Now you can push a button and get rich quick."

Iggy also admitted to doing copious amounts of drugs back in the day, but he's since cut all that out and suggests others do the same:

"Drugs...everybody should just drop that shit.  For me, the best is a very good wine, but weed is OK for most people."

So far a North American premiere date for Gimme Danger has not been announced. 

Meanwhile, as previously reported a new book about the Stooges titled Total Chaos, will be released later this year via Third Man Books. Pre-order info is expected to be announced shortly.
