Watch Iggy Pop Cover David Bowie Tunes at Tibet Benefit Concert

David Bowie's legacy lives on as artists continue to pay tribute to the late artist's music. The latest comes from friend and fellow rock icon Iggy Pop, who performed two of Bowie's tunes on Monday (Feb. 22) for Tibet House Benefit Concert at NYC's Carnegie Hall.

According to Billboard, Pop covered "The Jean Genie" (off Bowie's 1973 album Aladdin Sane) alongside the Patti Smith Group and the 1984 single "Tonight" with soul singer Sharon Jones.

Pop and Bowie first met in 1971 and worked closely together thereafter. “He resurrected me," Pop said after his friend's passing. "He was more of a benefactor than a friend in a way most people think of friendship. He went a bit out of his way to bestow some good karma on me.” Pop is currently gearing up for his Post Pop Depression album with Josh Homme next month, while Bowie will receive another tribute at Glastonbury Festival.
