Aretha Franklin passed away on Madonna’s 60th birthday. Just realized this fact. A wow fact in my opinion. History. Culture. Pop Music, Soul Music, American History. Change.
Women singers, artists, performers, changing the world through music. Giants.
Just watched the movie trailer for the documentary Truth or Dare from Madonna. I never watched it, however it’s on my to watch list this weekend.
Time is a gentle blanket. For some.
As I continue to prepare for my one-woman show, THE PASS, in which I tell stories about my life & career, I have been thinking of my past successes. This has led me to ponder the nature of success in general. Some people experience success as one straight line like a rocket vaulting into the sky; for others it is winding, a fluid motion like the stripes of a barber pole that can lead them from top to bottom to top again. I feel this pattern is most apt in describing my own music career.
My brother David and I recently found cassettes of my music from the 80’s and he wanted to transfer them to CD! We did at a studio in NJ – here’s CHEMISTRY- a very early song of mine. The song resonates with the rousing vibrations of youth and an interest in a new love.
