About the artist
Patti Smith is an American performer and poet. She is considered as an icon of punk rock, who gave impetus to its development and influenced many musicians of future generations.
The name Patti Smith is included in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Patti Smith's career began with poetry. She wrote a lot, inspired by Arthur Rambo and American beatnik poets. Therefore, initially on the stage, Patty read her poems with musical accompaniment.
Everything changed after the concert of The Doors, where Patti thought that she could do it just like Morrison. She borrowed the style from Keith Richards from the Rolling Stones, and her poetry became the lyrics of future songs.
So, in 1975, the debut album Horses was released. It was immediately praised by critics, and years later recognized as a cult work, which became the starting point in the history of the punk rock scene.
