Advertising Poster - Patti Smith And Her Group - with guests The Stranglers. Ticket to the gig attached to poster. Hammersmith Odeon, 22nd/23rd October 1976. Patricia Lee "Patti" Smith (born December 30, 1946) is an American singer-songwriter, poet, and visual artist who became an influential component of the New York City punk rock movement with her 1975 debut album Horses. Called the "punk poet laureate", Smith fused rock and poetry in her work. Her most widely known song is "Because the Night", which was co-written with Bruce Springsteen. It reached number 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1978.[1] In 2005, Patti Smith was named a Commander of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French Ministry of Culture,[6] and in 2007, she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.[7] On November 17, 2010, she won the National Book Award for her memoir Just Kids.[8] The book fulfilled a promise she had made to her former long-time roommate and partner, Robert Mapplethorpe. In Rolling Stone magazine's list of 100 Greatest Artists published in December 2010, she was in 47th place.[9] She is also a recipient of the 2011 Polar Music Prize. Country: UK. Year: 1976.
