Ever wonder what influences the great and powerful Patti Smith. Well wonder no longer, follow the link below to an amazing interview she did with NPR. She guests DJ's on 'All Songs Considered' and she talks about her influences, what makes her tick, and old stories from back on the road. My favorite is the one she tells about meeting a young Jimi Hendrix while she was still a journalist. These are musical moments that I would die for.
