Music is extremely important to me. All types of music.
I love the melody and the rhythm, but they are mostly a vehicle for me to mainline powerful lyrics.
So, I recently watched “Easter Parade”, being as the season was right for it. And, as always, Fred Astaire sang about how he was “Drum Crazy”.
I’m not drum crazy.
I love the rhythms and all, but that’s not what gets inside me. It’s the strings that touch on transcendental. Acoustic guitars and violins, harps and cellos– that’s my musical language.
I was fascinated in medical school when I saw real heartstrings.
