As PATTI SMITH will play my home country Belgium again tonight I will see her perform for the 5th time in the past 12 years. And every single time was a special event as Smith‘s ardent eagerness and ebullient intensity on stage is always omnipresent. To warm up for tonight my choice goes to a live rendition of the timeless Van Morrison classic ‘GLORIA‘.

A song Smith covered in her own special blistering way on her awesome debut LP Horses, a song which gets always a different forceful dimension when performed as I experienced before. See you tonight, Patti.
