Horses and Dinosaurs

Patti Smith attempts to justify her attendance at her induction into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.

Should an artist working within the revolutionary landscape of rock accept laurels from an institution? Should laurels be offered? Am I a worthy recipient?
erm . . . no.

She can belt out some cracking songs, but she don't half talk pish at times.

I just think the idea of "the revolutionary landscape of rock" sits uncomfortably alongside a "Hall of Fame." In what way was rock revolutionary if the end result is a self-congratulatory wankfest like that?
