Iggy Pop's Silicon Valley guitarist

I got hepatitis and moved back to Detroit

That's from a 2006 interview with James Williamson, the former and now current guitarist for Iggy Pop and the Stooges.

Williamson was describing his tumultuous time with a band addled by drug addiction.

Williamson left the rock and roll lifestyle and went on to a successful career as an electronics executive with Sony.

When he retired, he went back to Iggy and the Stooges. Tonight Dick Gordon from The Story will talk with Williamson about his career. You can hear The Story on Michigan Radio weeknights at 8pm.
