SKF NOTE: I interviewed Sheila E in 1985 for CREEM magazine. These pages are from that interview, but instead of the narrative story published in CREEM, these are Sheila’s words organized almost as a letter or a column.
I don’t remember why I wrote this piece or if it was ever published. I don’t think it was published. It’s possible this was put together for Modern Drummer.
At any rate, here’s a short autobiography from Sheila E at the time her hit album, single, Glamorous Life, was released, in her own words.
