Swiss City Says Iggy Pop Too Loud

December 15, 2005

LUCERNE, Switzerland (AP) _ Iggy Pop plays music too loud, according to officials in this Swiss city.

The 58-year-old punk rocker reached a decibel level of 102.5 while performing at July’s Blue Balls Festival, criminal investigation authorities in Lucerne said Wednesday.

That exceeded the maximum volume allowed of 100 decibels, which had been raised as an exception for the concert from the normal limit of 93 decibels, authorities said in a statement.

A fine of $1,155 was slapped on the producers of the music festival.
