Patti Smith on Songwriting
New series1/3. As part of Radio 2's On Song initiative in which songwriters discuss their craft. Mark Hagen interviews New York singer/songwriter Patti Smith , who emerged during the heyday of pre-punk with her influentially raw, expressionistic and attitude-rich stance. A woman who "likes to make trouble", Smith talks candidly about her own writing - including her 1978 collaboration with Bruce Springsteen (Because the Night) - and her new album of covers.
