Not sure what information this adds, but Patti Smith did
indeed do a song
entitled "Redondo Beach," on the _Horses_ album. About a guy (I assume)
looking for his girl, who is "gone, gone," and he finds her washed up on
Redondo Beach, a "sweet suicide." Lyrics available at the Patti website,
Fact is, that when we talk about good "hard-boiled" music, we
ought to consider some of Patti's stuff. Wonderful little stories of
people at the edge...or over.
