I didn’t attend the Patti Smith Group concert but felt as though I had after reading Monica Kendrick’s review (November 27). There are moments when you have experienced (read, seen, heard, touched) an art form and just went “wow.” It’s that recognition of genius, love, wisdom–whatever the thread is that ties us together on a higher plane, and that is what I felt after reading her review. I have very loosely followed Patti Smith’s career, and Ms. Kendrick’s summary of her concert was a rich flash of a complex artist and more.
