Patti Smith Reveals Plans For Just Kids Sequel

Patti Smith says she might soon release the sequel to her 2010 book, Just Kids. That book highlighted her youthful relationship with artist Robert Mapplethorpe.

Speaking with Billboard, Smith says the next book will be more "music based," including tales of her marriage with MC5 guitarist Fred Smith:

"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. It changed my life in many unexpected ways, so I have my story to tell."

She quipped that, despite her age, she still enjoys creative pursuits:

"I just reached social security age, but I'm far from retiring."
