Patti Smith is a living legend. A modern day renaissance woman, she is a punk-rock singer-songwriter, mother, poet, artist, activist, and best-selling author.
She’s widely considered one of the most influential female rock and rollers of all times and was an major figure in the underground/punk movement in New York. Now nick-named the “Grandmother of Punk,” Patti’s first album, Horses, was released in 1978.
But to many, her rugged individualism in a world of conformists is what is most inspiring about her. So we took notice when we saw this video of Patti’s life advice to young people. (Young people of all ages.) Enjoy!
