NEW YORK, March 4 (UPI) -- U.S. rocker Iggy Pop may be turning 60 next month, but it seems like he wouldn't have it any other way, a report says.

"Only now in my life do I have everything I wanted when I was an adolescent," Pop explains. "Cool cars, hot sex, a really good band that people actually enjoy, proper gigs. And I don't wake up feeling ill."

Also, his 60th year on Earth marks his first full album with his historic band The Stooges in over three decades, the New York Daily News reported.

Iggy Pop and the Stooges "The Weirdness" is a 12 track example of why the band is considered legendary, complete with whiplash riffs and vicious lyrics that compete with anything today's bands are putting on the market, the report said. The album will be released this week.

"I have a unique situation," said Pop, in an effort to explain why his band has retained its fire. "The two other guys in the band only had one good group -- and it broke up 34 years ago. So they're motivated. Also, I have this excitable streak."
