Lenny Kaye, the influential guitarist and composer perhaps best known for his work with Patti Smith, turned 70 today.
On this occasion, EVG reader Jennifer, who lives on 15th Street between Second Avenue and Third Avenue, hung a Happy Birthday Lenny Kaye banner from her terrace this morning. (Unfortunately, we didn't get a great shot of it. The winds this morning prevented the banner from staying up for too long.)
Anyway, per Jennifer: "We wanted to salute his many talents!"
There's a sold-out 70th birthday concert tonight at the Bowery Ballroom in his honor.
