As if seeing Patti Smith performing on New Year’s Eve wasn’t enough, the goddess of Rock and Roll brought out her friend, Michael Stipe, the former lead singer of REM, to perform a special cover of Jimmy Webb’s “Wichita Lineman” at New York’s Bowery Ballroom on December 31, 2011.  It looked and sounded like this…
