ain’t it strange: patti smith on the hall of fame

Posted on 12 March 2007 by Caryn Rose (0)

‘Rock ’n’ roll drew me from my mother’s hand and led me to experience. In the end it was my neighbors who put everything in perspective. An approving nod from the old Italian woman who sells me pasta. A high five from the postman. An embrace from the notary and his wife. And a shout from the sanitation man driving down my street: “Hey, Patti, Hall of Fame. One for us.”’

One for us, indeed.
