Labor of love: Smithereens work to stay fresh decades after forming in New Jersey

The Smithereens’ Pat DiNizio, 58, remembers his older cousin taking him to the movies at the age of 4 to see Elvis Presley in “King Creole” in 1959. After that, he was so captivated by rock ’n’ roll that the next day he asked his dad to buy him a guitar so he could learn to play like Elvis. The course of his life was already set, with a few detours along the way.
