People know how much I love photographing Backstage Fashion at the Shows In New York, London, Milan and Paris. So I took a "time out" from the "fashionistas" and "fashion Paparazzi" and headed to New York's Carnegie Hall to be with the Drepung Gomang Monastery and my friends, Iggy, Patty and Lenny to celebrate the New Year: "The Year of the Iron Tiger".
AND WHAT A "VIBE" IT WAS........
Gypsy punk band Gogol Bordello's electrifying performance got people on their feet.
Patti Smith opened up her set singing the classic O'Jay's song, "Love Train" following it with "Gloria", which got everyone jumping from there seats and running to the stage.
Iggy rocked out "shirtless" on stage singing "The Passenger" then dived into the screaming crowd singing "I Want To Be Your Dog". This had to be a first for Carnegie Hall and the Tibet House.

Tenzin Kunsel, the 15 year old Tibetan refugee who moved to the United States in 2003, performed a Tibetan aria, backed by the Patti Smith Group.

A beautiful moment of the night came when Robert A. F. Thurman, the President and one of the co-founders of the Tibet House, kissed Patti Smith's hand, an expression of "inner love and beauty" for "peace around the world". Afterward, we all headed down to Gotham Hall for a buffet dinner party.

this is the music genre par excellence, liked by young and old, has always been known as great exponents of music have emerged out of this genre, this is the case of the now defunct and loved by many MJ Jackson, Madonna, Britney Spears among others.

Patti Smith is not only the goddess of punk but everything else. I love her songs, her life story is so touching and the way she confronted her problems inspired me a lot. Very nice post dear Dustin, once again.
