Patti Smith: Just Kids

I haven‘t read a more inspiring, tender and well written book in ages than the book „Just Kids“ by Patti Smith... It is essentially about the coming of age of a multifarious artist and the account of a complex yet deep and meaningful relationship between two people... Highly recommended...

Slash at Huxley's, Berlin

What a great guitarist... great acoustics, great songs, just the right number of people in a relatively small concert hall (compared to where he used to play with Guns ‘n‘ Roses...)... and Myles Kennedy has just the right voice for Slash‘s new songs and some of the old Guns ‘n‘ Roses classics... the concert ended some few hours ago and my ears are still humming... good night and good luck...

Some advice from Walker Evans

„Stare, pry, listen, eavesdrop. Die knowing something. You are not here long.“
