Look past the age differences -- Canadian singer-songwriter Feist is 37, rock poet / goddess Patti Smith is 66 -- and the similarities between the two women are striking, don't ya think?

And it's not just the bangs, because everyone from the First Lady to your mom is sporting them these days. It's also the sideways glances, the sly smiles creeping across their mouths and just the rock-star cool both ladies ooze.

Smith released her 11th album, 'Banga,' last year and is reportedly working on a followup to her highly acclaimed 2010 memoir, 'Just Kids.' Leslie Feist released her fourth solo album, 'Metals,' in 2011. Last year she released a split EP with metal gods Mastodon. She'll be headlining, along with her former bandmates Broken Social Scene, June's Field Trip Music & Arts Festival, which celebrates the 10th anniversary of Arts & Crafts Records.
