Well it’s been 4 years since Sabel passed away… and four years is a long time ago now. I always find it really sad that I never had the pleasure to meet you, miss Shields. Sometimes I think that I will meet you on the street and say Hi to you and how much I admire you, how much I would like to have a picture with you and if I had one, I would tell everyone ”I met Sabel Starr, the muse of the biggest punk musicians, the queen, the real queen of the groupies!”
I admire you in every single way, Sabel Hay Shields, from the moment you defined your personality, the way you were always honest about your stories, the amusing way you have always been that every musician you met LOVED, the way in which you were having the worst serious problems, you could go on showing us that sincere, cheerful and wonderful smile that NEVER dissapeared in your face.
I know you’re up there, looking at your friends, your family, your children and your fans. I know that you’re in a better place, enjoying eternal vacations without any worries, any pain.
I made a collage collecting all the photographs in which Sabel is flashing her cheerful smile. I didn’t see her smile, but others did.
And I know that she’s still smiling that way in heaven.
Rest in peace, Sabel. We will never forget you, we will always love you. xx
