Iggy Pop is set to reform the original line-up of The Stooges to play 'Raw Power'.

The 'Lust For Life' star has been in discussions with former guitarist James Williamson about getting together al the members of the legendary rock band to perform their classic 1973 album in full.

Iggy told The Australian: "I had a meeting in Los Angeles last week with James.

"It was the first time we had seen each other in 30 years. So we talked about doing something together. 'Raw Power' would be the repertoire.''

Original member Ron Asheton - who played bass on 'Raw Power' and played guitar during a 2003 reunion and subsequent tours - died of a heart attack in January but the frontman insists a reunion is still possible.

He said: "There is always Iggy And The Stooges, the second growth of the band.''

It is unknown who would step in for Ron, but Minutemen's Mike Watt has played guitar with the group since their 2003 reunion.

Shortly after Ron's death, former Sex Pistols musician Steve Jones indicated he would be interested in joining the group.

He said: "If they wanna carry on, I'd gladly step into his shoes. It'd be a laugh. You can put that out there. If they wanna carry on, I wouldn't mind playing a bit of guitar."

The Stooges formed in 1967 and split in 1974. A part reunion followed in 2003, with the group recording and releasing new material to mixed reviews.

On their recent tours - which haven't included James - The Stooges have refrained from playing any material from 'Raw Power', which includes some of their best known songs, including 'Search And Destroy', 'Gimme Danger' and the title track.
