Darrell from Bette On The Boards has completely exhausted himself digging up some old articles and interviews to post on his site for your reading pleasure. Remember reading is becoming extinct under this administration…so everybody bone up on these skills now!!! (Is that an expression? Sounds nasty!) Anyway, in one article, Bette said she felt Bruce Springteen was her competition…seems our girl likes to take on the big boys! Good for her and her moxy!
Anyway, here are the resources for the articles:

If you like great music, great songwriting, great musicianship, and a little country mixed in with your rock and roll…with a big helping of romance thrown in for some spice, then you all need to check out my brother’s new CD:
Woody Bradshaw: Here To Stay
Yes, I know, it’s not Bette-related, but he ain’t heavy, he’s my brother (actually he DOES make my load wide and heavy, but I love him! 🙂 ) And I’m really proud of what he has accomplished… from the songwriting to the end product.
And I guess it is Bette-related, because he’s related to me and I’m Mister D!!! Indulge me, Indulge me!!! LOL
It’s available now on his site, www.woodybradshaw.com, complete with sound clips and purchasing information.
It will soon be on the major on-line stores such as Amazon and CD Baby, among others…so check it out!: Click Here
The Divine Miss AnneMarie
I also thought ya’ll might like to check out this tribute performer from Australia…yes, it’s a Bette Midler tribute!
This young lady has a traveling band AND a wheelchair. I thought it was fun…there are pics and audio clips with more to come I’m sure…
