18 Stars Who Are Only One Award Away From Snagging An EGOT

Bette Midler, Sitting, Chair

One of the most coveted achievements in the world of entertainment is the EGOT. Some talented artists have received it, but what about the stars who are super close to receiving an EGOT? What even is an EGOT?

In case you’re confused, EGOT stands for Emmy, Oscar, Grammy, and Tony. Getting just one of these awards is a tremendous achievement. Getting all of them is nearly impossible. Less than 20 people have received all four awards, but greats like Whoopi Goldberg, Audrey Hepburn, and Mel Brooks have been awarded accordingly. Read More

Bette Midler, Magazine Cover, Clown Nose

Bette Midler, Madonna, Bob Dylan: once you make it on to the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, you know you’re an icon.

For the past 50 years, the magazine’s front page has been a litmus test of cool, defining the ‘what’s hot’ and ‘what’s not’ of popular culture.

Did You Know Bette Midler Contributed Lyrics To Dr. John’s Classic Hit “Right Place, Wrong Time”? (Video Included) – One Of My All Time Favorite Songs!

Offbear Magazine
300 Songs For 300 Years: Keyboardists
MAY 9, 2018by: BRETT MILANO

Jerry Wexler, Bette Midler, and Dr John

“Right Place, Wrong Time”
Dr. John, 1973

This track was a high-water mark for New Orleans music in the ’70s, putting Dr. John, Allen Toussaint and the Meters into the Top Ten at once (the single peaked at number nine). Unlike all other Dr. John albums, the two he made with Toussaint (In the Right Place and Desitively Bonnaroo) were full collaborations that featured Rebennack mainly just as writer and singer; the funky electric piano on this song was Toussaint and the Meters provided the groove (the guitar solo was a New York session guy, David Spinozza). The Doctor had some high-profile help with the lyrics pf this song: According to his autobiography, Bob Dylan came up with “I was on the right trip, but it must have been the wrong car”; Bette Midler followed with “My head was in a bad place, I don’t know what it’s there for”; Texas legend Doug Sahm kicked some words in as well. The daring-for-the-charts line about “the right vein, must have been the wrong arm” was apparently Rebennack’s own. He also claimed that the line about “needing a little brain salad surgery” (yes, the line Emerson, Lake & Palmer borrowed for an album title) was Ninth Ward neighborhood slang for oral sex, but it’s hard to imagine anybody else dreaming that one up.

Kennedy Center Honors: Our top 50 recommendations who need to be chosen include Dick Van Dyke, Liza Minnelli, Jessica Lange, Bette Midler

Mister D: Ok, I admit that I’m prejudiced, but this list could be whittled down in seconds for me. My standards are high, well in some things, and some of these people don’t really belong on this list.

BetteBack April 30, 1975: Bette Midler Is Back Rashy And Gimmicky (‘Clams’)

NEW YORK (AP ) — A strenuous comeback bid is being made in “Bette Midler‘s Clams on the Half Shell Revue” by one of the most highly publicized maybe-stars of showbiz.

Flashy, brassy and gimmicky, the production has moved into Broadway’s Minskoff Theater for a run until June 21. Management asked reviews be delayed until after the Thursday performance, but to make deadlines most of the press attended the late starting, 2 1/2 hour fray on Wednesday. Read More

BetteBack April 16, 1975: Clams On The Half Shell Opens

Bucks County Courier
April 16, 1975

BROADWAY WAS LIKE A carnival last night. Six to 7000 people pushing and shoving in just one block — wild, desrespectful and wonderful Bette Midler opening at the Minskoff, everlastingly beautiful Ingrid Bergman opening in “The Constant Wife” at the Shubert.

Bette’s cultists wore from Dracula outfits to white-tie-and-canes and gave her numerous ovations and a huge one to Lionel Hampton.

I’m partial to Bette’s talking.

Too bad about the Bicentennial: “All New York’s revolutionary landmarks are now gay bars” … “Jerry Minskoff built this theater so he can remember how to spell his name. It has the warmth of a Ramadalnn.” Read More

on the ‘girl bands’ of her youth] The Ronettes, The Chiffons, The Marvelettes, The Crystals.. they were completely and utterly wholesome and whimsical. And optimistic. The music was very optimistic and upbeat. The ballads were sometimes sad, but you knew things were going to turn out in the end. The music wasn’t bleak. This was before Bob Dylan, you know. – Bette Midler
