    Bios of people I know of from earlier in my own life, like this, Willie Mays, etc are oddly depressing They may be good books, but they don t add all that much to my existing knowledge in many cases What they mostly do is remind me that I was 20 a long time ago.

    Unlike just kids, you get a real perspective on Patti s life as a musician More than a young lover partner in crime with Mapplethrope, she is an incredibly accomplished rock and roll girl And we see which choices she made and continues to make as life goes on.
