Diane Keaton and Sam Shepard in Liebe aus zweiter Hand (1997)

He wrote the 1971 play "Cowboy Mouth" with girlfriend Patti Smith and played in the very first production the role of Slim (with Smith in the role of "Cavale"). It is the only time he has played one of his own characters. Just before the second night's performance, Shepard was so disturbed about the experience of playing Slim that he abandoned the role without a word to anyone and left town. He has always had a fear of live audiences.

Ellen Burstyn and Sam Shepard in Der starke Wille (1980)

Collaborated with Bob Dylan in writing the song "Brownsville Girl," which appeared on Dylan's 1986 album "Knocked Out Loaded." The 11-minute song is considered by many to be a bright spot in what was otherwise a creative drought for Dylan from the late 1970s to the early 1990s.
