Horses being taken for another ride...

Yep, and I enjyoed it!  :)
Winterbach is a sleepy little town (not too far from Stuttgart), but once a year they build up a huge circus tent and have a few bands playing there. This year I made it there for the first time to see Patti Smith (for the first time). It had been a hot day, but towards the evening rain set in and thankfully it was a little bit cooler.
Patti & band spontaneously decided to play the whole of the Horses album (ok ok, it said so on the tickets/posters...)! ;)
Sound was good (a little bit too loud maybe) and Patti seemed to be in a good mood. She explained a little why some songs had been written... After "Horses" it was time for some hits and a Velvet Underground medley (by the band minus Patti, who danced to it near the end) and Who cover "My Generation".
Good show, good band. Glad to have seen her at least once!  8)

Glad you enjoyed that Uli. I'm glad to have seen her too, although I've only seen her once and went mainly to see her special guests Television. Now they were GREAT!

Free Money eh? Who does the best version? Patti or Penetration?

There's only one way to find out:

Patti Smith v Pauline Murray on the same Celebrity Punk Boxing bill as Smith v Strange?

First time I heard Television, they reminded me of Patti Smith a bit...  ;)

Btw, I thought "Television's over"...  :P
...I'll get my coat...

Oh you little tease you - you KNOW it's the other way round matey! The Neon Boys/Television formed before Patti started doing music and Television's Tom Verlaine was not only her boyfriend at the time of her first single (Hey Joe/Piss Factory), but played on it for her.

Television's never over!

I knew there were connections, but I didn't know the exact timing etc., thanks!  :)

She also co-wrote a number of Blue Oyster Cult songs.
And she sang on this one...

Was disturbed at the time to find myself actually liking 'Don't Fear The Reaper'

Got over it, mind  :)

Now that is a classic example of a brilliant introduction/riff let down by the crappy song that follows it!
