Eva-Jane Willis Meets Patti Smith
Because she's awesome, Eva-Jane was invited to the premiere of Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland as a VIP, which is pretty cool, so last night she was out on the green carpet in Leicester Square mixing it with the famous and the not so famous.
The film by the way according to her, is great.
Anyway, as we were in bed last night, drifting to sleep, Eva started to mention that she had shared a car with...Patti...(the name then came to her out of the blue) Smith?
As in the Patti Smith? As in the Godmother of punk rock? As in poet, songstress and musical legend? As in the author of one of the finest albums of all time: 'Horses'? As in the wife of guitar legend Fred 'Sonic' Smith? As in the all round intelligent, powerful and wonderfully unique female artists of the last 40 years?
Good job it was Eva-Jane that was travelling with her and hanging out with her on the green carpet and not me. I'd have made an ass of myself, geeking out on that woman's artistic brilliance and no doubt making her very uncomfortable. Eva didn't know her from Adam/Eve, which was a blessing and is a far better lubricant to good social interaction.
