Mister D: Recently Bette was in Nashville co-writing songs and here’s the lowdown on one of the songs she wrote with the lovely and talented, Ms. Janis Ian (“Some People’s Lives“) Here’s hoping we get a CD full of originals!
From Janis Ian’s Newsletter:
I’ve had a few distractions. Bette Midler and I spent a day working on a lovely song called “I Will Bring You Spring.” I’ve been telling her she should try writing songs since I first met her, back around 1974 – and for a first-time songwriter she was incredible. Pat and I spent the next evening eating sushi with Bette and her husband Martin, laughing a lot. I feel better afterwards; I bet even Bette Midler has to pack when she goes on tour. Though probably not as many bags. Or maybe more. She’s taller than I am.
