Carl S's review of Just Kids

A Revolutionary Remembers

5out of 5

by Carl S on September 29, 2011

Sometimes it's about being in the right place at the right time and Patti Smith certainly was. Now, all these years later, we get to hear the stories too, and great ones they are.

'Just Kids' is chock-full of wonderful anecdotes about the greats and the unknowns who shaped the New York music and art scene in the 60s, and 70's and whose influences on outsider culture in those days reverberate today in the mainstream.

Unflinchingly honest, and recalled with crystal clarity, Smith's remarkable memoir of this pivotal period in American art is a well-deserved award winner.

Once again, as we move further into the 21st Century, our minds and hearts are stirred by Patti Smith.
