Iggy Pop has gained a wild reputation over the years
Punk star Iggy Pop will collect a living legend award at the Marshall Classic Rock Roll of Honour awards later this year.
Pop, who was the lead singer of The Stooges, will pick up his prize on 2 November in London.
"All those years of banging away in the dives and palaces of the weird universe of rock are finally adding up to something," he said.
Previous recipients include Ozzy Osbourne, Jimmy Page and Alice Cooper.
"The other people who have received this award are absolutely awesome, and I feel very lucky to be included," added Pop.
Other awards at the ceremony will be voted for by readers of Classic Rock magazine.
Pop, whose real name is James Osterbergh, has had hits with Lust for Life, Real Wild Child and The Passenger.
A TV commercial for insurance featuring Pop was ruled as misleading by the advertising watchdog earlier this year.
The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) said the ad implied the veteran singer had a policy, but Swiftcover did not cover musicians at the time.
