meeting photographer robert mapplethorpe was a joy. he was charming, brilliant, and possessed a stoner kind of charisma i had never encountered before. as great admirers of patti smith, my musical partner and i chose him to take the photos for our first american release. i think it was nice that he tried to make us look as alike as possible. look who else looks alike? robert and 'kitten braden.' (stunningly played by cillian murphy in 'breakfast on pluto.'
