The Beat of My Own Drum: A Memoir (Hardback)Sheila E. (author)
- Not available
The Beat of My Own Drumis both a walk through four decades of Latin and pop music-from her tours with Marvin Gaye, Lionel Richie, Prince, and Ringo Starr-to her own solo career. At the same time, it's also a heart-breaking, ultimately redemptive look at how the sanctity of music can save a person's life. Having endured sexual abuse as a child, Sheila credits her parents, music, and God with giving her the will to carry on and to build a lasting legacy.
Rich in musical detail, pop and Latin music history from the '70s and '80s, and Sheila's personal story, this memoir is a unique glimpse into a drummer's singular life-a treat for both new and long-time fans of Sheila E. And above all, it is a testament to how the positive power of music serves as the heartbeat of her life.
