Chas Sanford who was Miss M’s lead guitarist in Divine Madness on Broadway and in the movie version has just put out an excellent new CD entitled, Wag More, Bark Later. He was also Bette’s boyfriend at one point. You might remember some pix of him escorting her to the Golden Globes, looking so cute. I’m sure I’ve posted a photo or two somewhere.
I ran into him not long ago here in Nashville where he resides now. He’s a very nice guy…very down to earth. He said the last time he heard from Bette Midler was during the KMB tour when they talked about writing together. I don’t think they ever did. She’s a busy gal. But he has stayed busy as a songwriter for years, writing such mega-hits as “Talk To Me” for Stevie Nicks, “Missing You” for John Waite, and Chicago’s “What Kind Of Man Would I Be.” His songs have also been recorded by Tina Turner, Rod Stewart, Melanie, Roger Daltrey, Berlin, Millie Jackson, Brooks & Dunn, Alison Krauss, Rick Springfield, Sammy Hagar, Jimmy Barnes, Don Johnson, and many more.
Currently you can get his CD on iTunes. Later you should be able to get it on Amazon, CD Baby, and in other markets. You won’t be sorry. Go ahead and listen to the samples on iTunes. Awesome!
