James Williamson's Raw Power is all in the mix
Music Story May 28, 2010, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Stooges guitarist James Williamson began life due west of San Antonio, in Castroville, whose chamber of commerce brands the burg "The Little Alsace of Texas" thanks to its founding in 1844 by colonists from the Alsace region of France. That's approximately a half-century removed from Northern California's Silicon Valley, where Williamson currently resides..."
SXSW Panel: From Riffs to Bits
This is your life James Williamson, you Stooge you
DAILY Music March 14, 2014, by Tim Stegall
"...James Williamson, Texan by way of Detroit, practically invented the punk rock guitar riff when he co-wrote “Search & Destroy” with Iggy Pop. That led to one of the most insane journeys a rock & roll musician could have: From garage bands, reform school, and the Stooges to disco producer, Silicon Valley techie, corporate VP, and re-birth as a Stooge...."

Film Review March 24, 2000, by Russell Smith
As incorrigibly dark-hearted as you'd expect from a brainchild of two veteran X-Files writers, this flawed but often entertaining teen horror flick dishes out more of the long-running show's patented...
"...For one thing, there's hardly a trace of the genre's characteristic breathless thrill-ride feel as we try to guess which of the generically attractive cast will be the next to get skewered, electrocuted, beheaded, or smashed like a June bug. The story certainly has its share of irony and grim humor, but it's imbued much more with the gleeful sadism of Clive Barker than the breezy wit of Kevin Williamson..."

ACL Interview: Iggy & the Stooges
Sunday, 6:15pm, Bud Light stage
Music Story October 5, 2012, by Kevin Curtin
"...In 1974, the Stooges couldn't stand any more abuse from fans, the pop music infrastructure, or themselves, so they disbanded. While Iggy Pop went to rehab and later became a pop star, guitarist James Williamson studied engineering, worked at Advanced Micro Devices, and eventually became a VP at Sony (see "Shake Appeal," May 28, 2010)..."

Music Column November 26, 2010, by Austin Powell
"...A serendipitous postscript has emerged in the wake of the Chronicle's interview with James Williamson of the Stooges (see "Shake Appeal," May 28). After responding to the article, local reader Michael Adams reconnected with Williamson, his former bandmate in the garage band the Coba Seas..."
Film Review July 24, 1998, by Marc Savlov
"...Dopey, histrionic fun from The X-Files alum David Nutter and Scott Rosenberg, writer of a real horror film -- last year's Con Air. Doubtlessly green-lighted following the success of Kevin Williamson and his minions, this paranoiac slab of hormonal overload positively drips with snide asides, though it's not nearly as cohesive (or witty) as the Craven/Williamson Scream franchise..."

Total Chaos: The Story of the Stooges as Told by Iggy Pop
Music Story June 15, 2017, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Brainiac Jim Osterberg's oftentimes photographic memory stacks detail upon detail belonging to only the most epic adventures. "Bozo geniuses" Osterberg, brothers Ron and Scott Asheton, Dave Alexander, and James Williamson somehow extract the wildly unstable core of American atavism and launch it from a high school gymnasium into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame..."
Film Review November 11, 2016, by Marc Savlov
"...But here Jarmusch declares, straight off the introductory bat, that the Stooges were “the greatest rock & roll band ever.” (Clash fans may quibble.) From there, he intercuts a lengthy, often hilariously droll “interrogation” of his subject, lounging in what looks like a golden throne, with a series of blackout segments that document the various phases of the band. Pop, still as wiry and tan as a desiccated desert rat all these years later, recalls his early love for Chicago blues and the formative meetings between himself – originally a drummer – and future sibling bandmates Ron (guitar) and Scott Asheton (proper madcap drumming), bassist Dave Alexander, and later, second guitarist James Williamson..."

"...He got his wish, even forcing bassist Mike Watt to come home from his own European tour. And with hardly a fuss, they're off: "Raw Power," bam, James Williamson riffing like a hyperthyroid Dave Davies, with Watt and drummer Toby Dammit deputized for brotherly rhythm section Scott and the late Ron Asheton..."
