So the other day, Rocks Off wrote briefly about Huey Lewis in regards to the Back To The Future soundtrack, not even thinking to chime in just a little bit about his reportedly huge male member. You know that certain part of the male anatomy all those soft-core porn stars are always talking about on those late night infomercials for boner pills? That one. Which got us to thinking, what about other rock star penii? We have hated the p-word, so more than likely we'll use "wang" from here on out. What's even funnier is that when we have to refer to our own "thing" we normally just point down and cough. So to even use terms like wang, penis and, daresay, dick in print is a little liberating.

Iggy Pop, in Cincinatti, the night he whipped peanut butter at the crowd. There is extreme, there is legendary — and then there is Iggy Pop. Beginning in his earliest days with the Stooges taunting Ann Arbor frat boys and small town Michigan folk, Iggy made an art of excess: self-mutilation, self-exposure and self-destruction. His risky theatricality required an audience to respond, participate or get the heck out of there.

While he sung he would flagellate himself, shoot up with heroin, roll on the floor and cut his arms with razor blades.
