After Iggy caused some damage to a Dutch TV studio miming to Lust For Life (#3 over here in november 1977), the Dutch press turned up en masse when he returned to mime to I Got A Right. Too bad for them, Iggy refused (even after mucho pleading) to damage anything at all (he's good at posin' tho'..)
