Patti Smith: the interview

Patti Smith sat down with Patti Smith:

The people that I listened to when I was young I still listen to - John Coltrane, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix. But, I always also loved opera. A lot of different music inspired me. I also had a love for r&b music. I think in terms of rock & roll, consistently it has been about Hendrix. I also loved dancing to the Rolling Stones and rock & roll is part of my life. The way I have been influenced is that there is certain music that will make you happy or can fulfill you emotionally. I have always learned from John Coltrane and continue to learn from Bob Dylan.
