Now I don't. Mr Micheal Balzary, YOU ARE MY HERO with this. I love her and I love you and anyway I agree with every word you said.

hi everyone


on this day that patti smith is being inducted into the rock n roll 

hall of fame

i am happy for patti

if i were going to induct her there today instead of play a gig in 

oklahoma city

this is what i would say



ladies and gentleman

patti smith is god

she is god because she has made it clear that everyone of us is god

she reminds us who we are

for those of us who listen to her records and go to see her concerts

she brings to life the highest part of of us

awakens us to our greatest gifts

makes us want to be alive

makes us want to read the finest poetry

makes us want to surrender our bodies and have the beat dance through us

makes us want to fuck with all the love in our hearts

makes us want to be quiet and know ourselves

makes us want to live every day with purpose

and live a life of kindness and dignity

and mind our own business

and rock out like the animals we are

and not take shit from anyone

and fight the good fight

and give of our selves for for sake of being a giving person

and above all

she makes us want to start our own band, write our own book, and 

paint our own painting(stolen from mike watt)

i have been to a lot of rock shows and been inspired and had a great 


but i have only ever sobbed like a new born baby at a patti smith show

in this time when we are constantly taught by our pop stars to get 

rich or die trying

that amassing a large quantity of money and it's hollow, predictable 

power is the most important thing to strive for

we can listen to a patti smith record and know what it really is to 

have a meaningful successful life

that to make something beautiful without concern for commerce

and to trust in the beauty of that thing

is true success as a musician and as a person

patti, along with the great musicians that have collaborated with and 

accompanied her, lenny kaye, jay dee daugherty,richard sohl, and tom 

verlaine, have kept alive the greatest traditions of rock and roll

and changed it and uplifted it and reminded the world of it's true 


and the source from which it came

she gave a generation of punk rockers something to hold on to

and a path to freedom

patti who can say fuck you and it will be as profound and full of 

life as her greatest lyrics

who can sing the most profound and uplifting lyrics that capture the 

deepest complexities of this sad and beautiful world and they are as 

intense and direct as a fuck you

who never considered selling out

who always told us the truth about herself and the world around us 

and let the chips fall where they may

who rocked your  world to its core

who is the number  one coolest rock star of all time and is an 

entertainer  everytime she steps on a stage as much as sammy davis 

junior, jimi hendrix, or james brown were

who never placed herself above anybody

who got her self out of the way and let the gods speak

who easily could have cashed in on all that trappings fame had to 

offer but never ever put her career ahead of being a totally devoted 

mother of two beautiful kids

who's late husband the true rocker fred sonic smith is glowing and 

proud of her right now


patti made a lot of people not feel alone

including me

i am so grateful to her

my friend

my hero

ladies and gentlemen

it is my pleasure to induct into the rock n roll hall of fame

patti smith

Did I say I love this man? *_*
