Did You Know?
I think I was [the godmother of punk]. In the '70s it started, and I'd go to [Manhattan music venue] CBGB and see Blondie
and the The Ramones
, and they were calling me up onstage. I didn't know punk, but they knew me. Everybody knew me, but I didn't know anybody - Patti Smith
and all those people who were punkers. I didn't get it. It was like Amy Winehouse
, they wanted to be like me.
Inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, as a member of The Ronettes
, on March 12, 2007.
