She's in love with material and status not imperfect immortals. She's probably a baby mom that needs the support without the man? Typical American woman go figure

I always wanted to play the drums being led by pioneer men but when i heard Sheila e play i knew then i will be beating the crap out of some drums. This lady can play better than she can sing. Just my opinion.

Real musicians forged the rock/pop genres. But the business men have completely taken it over. Lot of great music from the 80's
