BETTY DAVIS XCLUSIVE Interview!!

Betty Davis is a legend of soul and funk music. The one-time wife of Miles Davis introduced the jazzman to Jimi Hendrix, Sly Stone and the broad world of electric music, leading him to create « Bitches Brew. » She recorded three albums of her own in the 1970s, full of raw, sexy, outrageous funk. The first two, « Betty Davis » and « They Say I’m Different » have been re-released by the Seattle label Light in the Attic Records.

Davis left the music industry in the late 1970s, and has been completely absent from the public eye since — at one point, a fan had to track her down in the suburbs of Pittsburgh to get her $40,000 in songwriting royalties.

This is her first radio interview since her performing days.

Une réflexion au sujet de « BETTY DAVIS XCLUSIVE Interview!! »

  1. I played keys for Betty on « They Say I’m Different » LP and toured with her for about a year. Betty was the Queen of Funk. On the 1st day of my session with her, I had just got to the West coast and that day I went to the studio before I had unpacked! I was like wow, this is too much. But she came to me and said, just play Tony. She said I want you in here and that was it! The high point of my music thing!! She trusted me that much was too much! Yea, we were both from NC and the same town of Reidsville, she let me do what I felt. I had a funky good time!! I will never forget it. Betty if you read this, I want to say thanks and that I love you……..
