Buzzy Linhart, Bette Midler

Multi-instrumentalist and recording artist Buzzy Linhart suffered what is described as a “major seizure event” on Tuesday (May 29) and remains in the hospital recovering.

Buzzy’s son, Xeno David Rasmusson, posted about the situation on Tuesday:

Hey Friends, my father Buzzy Linhart had a major seizure event this morning and is in the ICU at Alta Bates in Berkeley. He is sedated, intubated and resting after a lot of testing today. MRI came back normal, so we are hopeful he will emerge from sedation in the morning. Room mate Lenny acted quickly so the care was delivered quickly, so for now all we can do is rest, pray, and fire up the Buzzy Linhart music. @linhartbuzzy #buzzylovesyou Read More

A Brief Look At The Life Of Illustrator Richard Amsel – Did Some Of Bette Midler’s Iconic Album Covers And More

Salem House Press
Illustrator of the Week: Another Look at Richard Amsel
Author: awalkthroughsalem
MAY 29, 2018

Bette Midler, Clams, Illustration

Amsel quickly found popularity within New York’s art scene, and his illustrations caught the attention of Barry Manilow, then a young singer/songwriter named who was working with Bette Midler, a newly emerging entertainer in cabaret clubs and piano bars. Manilow introduced the two, and it was quickly decided that Amsel should do the cover of her first Atlantic Records album. The cover, for The Divine Miss M proved to be one of the most ubiquitous of the year. More album covers and posters soon followed, as did a series of magazine ads for designer Oleg Cassini.

‘Big Bang Theory’ Star Mayim Bialik on First Making Waves in 1988’s ‘Beaches’

‘Big Bang Theory’ Star Mayim Bialik on First Making Waves in 1988’s ‘Beaches’
By Debra Birnbaum

mayim bialik, Beaches, BETTE MIDLER

Like the character she plays on “The Big Bang Theory,” Mayim Bialik is a neuroscientist — she earned her Ph.D. from UCLA in 2007. Though as Amy Farrah Fowler she’s won the hearts of millions of fans, not to mention Sheldon Cooper, her fiancé on the hit CBS sitcom, acting wasn’t the career she always intended for herself.

She stumbled onto the industry in 1988, when she was cast as the 11-year-old version of Bette Midler’s C.C. Bloom in the movie “Beaches.” Her no-holds-barred performance drew raves, including in Variety, where she was called “extraordinary.” The reviewer wrote, “She can sing, she can dance, and she seems amazingly like the carrot-topped star as she brazenly bulldozes her way through a musical routine and most real-life situations.” Read More

In Pick Five, great artists tell us about five cover songs that matter to them.

david ford covers

Plenty of musicians write songs about politics. Fewer write songs about economics. But that’s the subject of all ten tracks on British singer-songwriter David Ford’s new album Animal Spirits, out Friday.

If an album about markets and trickle-down theory sounds kind of, well, dry – it isn’t. At all. Like all of his albums, Animal Spirits is brilliant: bluesy barn-stormers mixed with a few wedding-worthy love songs. Check out the title track: Read More

Apple Formally Asked Not to Kill iTunes Music Downloads By Group Of Artists Including Bette Midler #BetteMidler, #CreativeCommonsCoalition

Apple Formally Asked Not to Kill iTunes Music Downloads
Paul Resnikoff May 2, 2018

Bette Midler, Creative Commons Coalition

As the guillotine dangles over the head of iTunes music downloads, artists are starting to take urgent action.  That includes the Content Creators Coalition (CCC), a top musician advocacy group.

During its latest earnings call, Apple CEO Tim Cook didn’t mention iTunes music downloads — not once.

Instead, the Apple chief proclaimed steady progress and booming revenues from a range of other, more modern platforms.  “We had all-time record revenue from the App Store, from Apple Music, from iCloud, from Apple Pay and more, all of which are a powerful illustration of the importance of our huge active installed base of devices and the loyalty and engagement of our customers,” Cook declared (here’s the full transcript).
