OMG! You've really done it NOW...That is so cool, because I did mention that I was a musician, but I really didn't get into it because of personal reasons...but I will disclose this now...only because you gave me inspiration to tell this story...I've been in bands most of my life. My family's very musically gifted...I play guitar and sing and my last band "Chasing Kitten"..was playing in Orlando, we opened up for lot's of bands...lot's of really cool 80's bands...Like Loverboy, Heart, even Edgar Winter LOL and the like, but,....we just never made it due to personnel problems. Anyway, this guy (black guy) kept asking me to join his band...I was like "yeah right"...I have a great band here (he didn't know that we were having problems), why should I go with you, Mr. Nobody...well Mr. Nobody turned out to be Sly of Sly and the Family Stone...LOL...so, one night I when I went to play, the whole band was arguing and I kept out of it for the most part...mainly because I was the lead singer and sang about 99% of the songs...so you can understand why I didn't want to raise my voice...(very self-centered then too)...so, I saw Sly...and asked him if he still needed a rhythm guitarist, singer...he said "Girl, you're more black than I am! LOL (I liked to sing funk/rock) Mother's Finest, Earth, Wind, & Fire...stuff that was crossover...and if it wasn't we made it that way...that's why we were different...
Anyway...I went with Sly and we played all over Miami for a while...but, that was short lived due to a certain problem that I won't mention here. Unfortunately, my equipment happened to get stolen ...sooooooo, that was the end of my music career! I had had enough with musicians, the traveling, and I missed my cats too! It took me about 10 years to pick up a guitar again. In the meanwhile, I never quit loving music, I just began developing another art form...and that was being a Christian. It takes alot of practice...I'll never reach perfection at it, but I'll always be honest as I can, and loving as I can...I truly think God did me a major favor.
God Bless All
