12/12: A Master Drummers’ Birthday

Tony Williams, born on 12 December 1945 – 1997
Sheila E, born on 12 December 1957

I listen to the drums to heat up a place, to “flush out” energies and thoughts that I don’t want to keep, to repair myself after disappointments, sadness and upsets, to come back to me, to feel myself again, to find my groove again. The unfriendlier the events, the more percussion I play at home. The drums and I get each other. #sexyinstrument

Thanks to Tony Williams and Sheila E, both born on this day, for their rich and gorgeous output and for raising my mood more often than I can thank them for.
