As Vulture noted, "Hawkins impressed fans and peers alike with his full-throttle style and rambunctious energy."
Perhaps that's why, as an EVG reader reminded us, Hawkins was signed to play Iggy Pop in the 2013 "CBGB" bio-pic.
We're introduced to Iggy in the clip below ... who then interrupts a Blondie performance and later duets with Debbie Harry on a rendition of "I Wanna Be Your Dog."
That never actually happened — outside the film, anyway.
As the "CBGB" end credits pointed out: "And we know Iggy Pop never performed at CBGB. Deal with it!"
