OSF Writehead fact: I’m a musician (who plays instruments) /drum enthusiast therefore-a Sheila E. fanatic (on the low, yo). And I would be remised if I didn’t mention this.

It’s quite funny.

sheila-eAs a kid, I was a massive Prince and Sheila fan. I l.o.v.e.d this woman. So was so bad ass to me-so exciting.

Well. My auntie scored tickets to a concert and guess who my first concert memory was: Prince and Shiela E.

Just so happened that our seats were located in an area where during intermission, Sheila E was standing at the bottom of the stairs during Prince’s intermission.

*be still my heart*

My auntie took the stroll down the steps and I was standing there with my fists clutched to my chest while she and my auntie looked up the steps.

My auntie began signaling me to come down.

I tell you…that was the longest trip down some steps of my life.

tumblr_m3m88bZhea1rp21yfo1_1280I probably double-stepped every single step toward that woman, still, with my knuckles to my chest and tears in my eyes.

When I got up to her, all I could do was cry. It was cute. She hugged me and laughed, while…my aunt had to speak for me. That moment was hilarious!

At any rate.

Rock out to some classic Sheila E extended version musician hotness above the OSF big screen and through this write up.

Enjoy!
