 Patti Smith planning sequel to Just Kids

Poet, Author, and punk-rock progenitor Patti Smith will be following up her incredible memoir Just Kids with a sequel — of sorts.

Smith told Billboard:

I don’t have a big rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle, a sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll story to tell. I think I have maybe a better story. Through rock ‘n’ roll I traveled the world, worked with my late brother and, best of all, that’s how I met Fred [Smith]. It changed my life in many unexpected ways, so I have my story to tell.

While Just Kids revolved mainly around Smith’s relationship with photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, NME reports that her new book will feature a more “music-based” and “family” story, with more of a focus on her former marriage to MC5 guitarist Fred Smith. The as-yet untitled book will be out in 2013.
