This was BY FAR Patti's best cover.

Sorry, "Hey Joe" lovers out there.

What an excellent set. So glad to hear it (even if it is a rerun). Love Patti, love the Who, Love E. Costello.

Should have been so, but in reality did not. And, because "there is beautiful without one if not" the excellent software programming RP also has bugs, which is rare, and I do not recall ever having happened.
So, was scheduled to play "Patti Smith - So You Want To Be A Rock 'n' Roll Star", but failed to do so, the program went live from "E.Costello" to "The Who". Natural this, except that Patti Smith has one credit of this song .... lol

What kind of crap shows have you been seeing. I have seen her 3 times and was blown away more each time. I own everything this woman has done, everything!!!  She is one of the premier poets of our time.  You need to go back and listen to her body of work.  There are very few artists that I own everything that they have done, Patty Griffin, Porcupine Tree, Radiohead, Rolling Stones, yeah that is it.  She ranks right up there.

Agreed!  I remember when this hit the airwaves (BRIEFLY!) in Mpls. in the Summer of '79.  What a revelation!

Unfortunately, the local crap rock station moved on rather quickly, and then we were back our usual steady diet of Supertramp, Molly Hatchet and April Wine.

Maybe you should check the label the next time you do that stuff.

Nope, not me.  Of course, I was born in 1978, had a "jew-fro" (no insult to any jewish person intented!) for a large part of my life.  Kept it cut short so I didn't look like a white Billy Dee Williams, then one day I got a burr up my butt and decided I needed a change.  The girl I was with at the time suggested I shave it.  I decided a preemptive strike against male pattern baldness wasn't a bad idea and I haven't looked back since.

When Patti says 'don't forget who you are, you're a rock n roll star', it's just a helluva lot more compelling than when the Byrds said it. I don't know why.
 
Good call, and I'd say it's because she came up in the punk wave, when "rock and roll star" was an insult, but she had this whole love of rock history and a real understanding of where rock and roll had been, and then here is this seminal song that made the "rock star insult" thing very early on, so for her to do the song embodies two levels of irony.  And then, she does it more or less as straight kick-ass rock and roll, which is even funnier.

Especially if you saw her do it live — I saw her scale the amplifier wall and perch on top like King Kong going up the Empire State Building, pumping her fists and yelling "Don't forget who you are!!! Don't forget who you are!!! You're a rock and roll star!!!" while the band rocked out.  

Now that's compelling.
