BootLeg Betty

An Unpublished Interview with Rock Impresario and Punk Priestess, Patti Smith

Editor’s Note: Back when I was still in my teens, I remembered reading a snippet of this story about Patti Smith’s first encounter with Bette Midler. I had heard Bette’s version of the story (she claims it was an accident), but I had never heard Ms. Smith’s side. Anyway, it was fate that I came upon this article, because everytime I buy a Patti Smith CD, I always remember the little tidbit of gossip I read in “Rolling Stone” magazine…those wild, drunken, rock and roll days…remember everybody was young…hope you enjoy
Bette Midler, Patti Smith, and Bob Dylan
