Patti Smith Completed Memoir At Pal Johnny Depp's French Home
The Because The Night singer promised late artist partner Robert Mapplethorpe she'd write a book about their life together before he died in 1989, but never found the spark living in New York City.
So when she decided to make a start on the tome, she jetted off to France hoping to find inspiration there.
She tells Rolling Stone magazine, "I shelved it (book) quite a few times, but I decided I had to do it, because I'd promised Robert I would do it. I don't write well in New York, so I went to France and wrote in a little room in the Ministry of Culture. Then Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis let me stay in a little house on their property in the South of France. That's where I finished it."
