I can hardly believe that Patti Smith and Russell Crowe got together and sung Patti's hit on a small stage in my town, in downtown Reykjavík. I can much less believe I missed it, I was on a picnic up north, in the mountains.

This was an event on Culture night, last Saturday. Patti Smith is almost 66 years old, but sings and looks like a teenager. Enjoy.

The film Noah is being filmed in Iceland, that's why Russell Crowe is here. He and Tom Cruise are obviously different characters. Russell Crowe goes downtown and mingles with the people, a nice guy. Even sings on a stage outside.

Tom Cruise, when he was here, he went everywhere with security guards and was flown in a helicopter between places, thus disturbing farmers and animals. His film Oblivion was being filmed in the wilderness of Iceland. Tom Cruise behaved like he owned the place.

Figures, never really liked Tom Cruise. But I did see an amazing program on Iceland - think it was on PBS.

That's good to hear, PianogrlNW, some TV stations have been running some shows about the country, might have been on Good Morning America.

Maybe this has little to do with piano, but I'm just finding it a bit hard to get over, that a legend like Patti Smith (with Russell Crowe) was singing on stage near the street I go down almost daily. And I missed it!

I have always loved Patti Smith! Decades ago, when I was dragooned into a "leadership" seminar in high school (apparently they viewed me as the ringleader of the geeky girls) and made to choose a female role model, she is the one I chose.

I have to get around to reading "Just Kids".

Yes, that was amazing. Patti Smith has been around for awhile and is a legend, and with Russell Crowe, in Iceland....

Sorry you missed the event.
