BetteUcation: Bette Midler & Tom Waits ~ Friendship


Bette & Tom Waits have been friends since the mid 70’s, this is what he had to say on their friendship ~
“I wrote some songs for her. like “I Never Talk to Strangers” and “Rainbow Sleeves.” As soon as I met her, I felt like I had already known her. We can talk about anything. I love her musical impulses; she has a great sense of history in terms of her involvement in show business. She wanted to open a lounge act together, featuring us as Edie and Edie Wednesday. We’ve been friends for a long time, you know, since ’74.”
Interview Magazine, 1989
