In this 1979 interview, a 'misbehaving' Patti Smith loses her mind, plays the clarinet

Hello Germany! Here's a 1979 interview from Rockpalast, a music TV show in Germany, featuring Patti Smith.

YouTube describes it this way:

Hilarious. A misbehaving Patti Smith (and Richard Sohl) with a very serious host (Alan Bangs) who keeps asking the same question and translates everything she says. Lenny Kaye tries to answer the question in the end.

I saw her recently throwing a Cronut at John Varvatos.

My german is rusty but it was an endearing interview with, as you say, a serious young man, who pretty faithfully translated what was said.
