Patti Smith is celebrating her 71st birthday today. Patti is a singer-songwriter, poet and visual artist who became a highly influential component of the New York City punk rock movement with her 1975 debut album “Horses.”
She has been called the “punk poet laureate”, as she fused rock and poetry in her work. Her best known song is “Because the Night”, which was co-written with Bruce Springsteen. The song reached number 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1978.
In 2007, Patti was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Happy Birthday Patti!!
