Welcome to my blog where we kick out the jams, mofo!*
MC5 was such an important band that I can't really say anything new about them that hasn't been said. I have seen Patti Smith in concert a few times and at her show at First Avenue in about 2000 she told a nice story about the late, great Fred "Sonic" Smith and then delievered a blistering cover version of "My Generation". Trivia note: The son of Patti and Sonic is married to Meg White, drummer for the White Stripes.
*Note: Some of the initial 20 or so posts might be out of order as many of them were composed before I activated this blog.
