Patti Smith

In 2016, Patti went to Stockholm to pick up the Nobel Prize for her friend, Bob Dylan. He had won the Nobel Prize in Literature “for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition.” It’s unclear why he didn’t go himself. I think he was in a state of shock.

I highly recommend Patti Smith’s books, in particular “Just Kids” and “M Train”.

Back then, Smith and Dylan were two of the coolest people on the planet. I find this video below very uplifting.
