When I worked for Creative Drum Shop in Phoenix, we rented all the percussion instruments (including all set drums) and much of the sound equipment to the Donna Summer Show. I was responsible for delivery of the van full of equipment, and under penalty of sure death, I was to guard the goods, see that they were packed up after the show, and safely returned to the store.
She and I joked about the fact that we shared a birthday (December 31) although she is a few years younger than I. Donna Summer and her staff were a delight to work with and her show was outstanding. And the "goods" were well treated and returned safely to the store.
Donna is a committed Christian and has spent many years on her art career. One of her paintings is below.
After doing a bit of poking about the interwebs, I've decided that this is most assuredly not one of Donna's paintings. I thought at the time it looked nothing like her other works (as one of my commenters pointed out.)
Since I think the picture is so fascinating, I've decided to leave it here and have posted a Donna Summer painting blow.
Anyone know who did the picture below?
