The Most Influential Woman in Rock
Newsweek's Brian Braiker has a web exclusive interview with Patti Smith.
As so many things change it's good to hear a solid voice still seeing possibility while walking in new places. Inspiration and energy as always.
Now there’s just so much information and so much between the listener and the voice. There’s so much image; there’s all this music TV, all this lifestyle, that to actually be spoken to, there’s a bigger gap than ever. Across the board everything is so materialistic and so sexualized and there’s so much violence that the core issues of humanity are sort of lost.

So maybe rock is on the brink of a new movement?
A lot of exciting things come out of periods like this. Eventually people will wake up. They’re going to see that the war in Iraq is wrong, that drilling in Alaska is wrong, that letting millions of people die in Africa of AIDS is wrong. They’re going to start connecting all these dots. That’s why sometimes you need a new place.
