Rock and Roll as Art

“I was basically interested in achieving some kind of communication with the gods through sound…”

– Patti Smith

I’m taking the idea of gods as a metaphor for something fundamentally deep and primal – something bigger than any one person.

Whatever the case – this is someone whose intent is about as real, pure, and intense as possible. She’s fully committed to to what she’s doing, and her art reflected that.

Yeah – fully fucking committed. Think about it. Strive for it.

That’s where truth lies.
