Iggy Pop’s insurer reverses decision on covering musicians

Swiftcover, the online car insurer that uses punk idol Iggy Pop to advertise its wares but refuses to insure musicians, has reversed its decision ahead of an Advertising Standards Agency ruling on Wednesday.

But it's believed that Swiftcover, which has seen sales jump by a third during the first quarter of 2009, has changed its view of rockers and will now offer insurance to the pop world.
