(Classic Rock) Patti Smith was moved to tears this week when she was handed a bag of items which were stolen from her in 1979. The Guardian reports the singer-songwriter was giving a reading in support of her memoir M Train (Shakespeare Today) at Dominican University, Illinois, when she was approached by Noreen Bender who handed over the missing belongings.

Items in the bag included a Keith Richards t-shirt, a top she wore on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine in 1978, and a piece of cloth given to her by brother and road manager Todd Smith, who died in 1994.

Bender told the Chicago Tribune that she received the items from a male friend of her then flatmate. She says: "I knew I had to get it back to her. It's not for a stranger." Read more here.
