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.
