Support 88Nine And This Artist:
Patricia Lee "Patti" Smith (born December 30, 1946) is an American singer, poet and visual artist who was a highly influential component of the New York punk
rock movement, particularly with her 1975 début album 'Horses
'. Called the "Godmother of Punk", she integrated the beat poetry
performance style with three-chord rock. Smith's most widely known song is "Because the Night
", which was co-written with Bruce Springsteen
and reached number 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1978. In 2007, she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
