BetteBack February 6, 1975: Critics Get A Preview Of The Cher Special

San Mateo Times
February 6, 1975

There is no question that when Sonny Bono started his “Sonny Comedy Hour” he missed Cher.

The absence of Cher was one of the real reasons for the show failing to make it through the season.

Not only did Sonny’s show lack writing, it lacked comedy.

Next Wednesday night, Cher will try it on her own. This show, a special designed to kick off her new series, came off much better than did Sonny’s solo venture in television.

It was the presence of Cher that made the old “Sonny and Cher Show” a success. The girl can wear clothes like a high fashion model. Read More

BetteBack January 19, 1975: What Happened After The Cher Special Taping?

Lubbock Avalanche Journal
January 19, 1975

When Cher Bono wrapped up taping her first CBS-TV special, she with her steady, David Geffen (and don’t let anyone tell you differently) took off with the likes of none other than her first show guests, Elton John (In kilts and ruffles and of course, with his famous white framed glasses), Bette Midler in drab, and Richard Chamberlain along with a party of “intimates” and entourage to such a port of entertainment as Studio One in West Hollywood. They all danced together and then caught impressionist Lynn Carter
on stage in the Back Lot. What made it amazing was that many of the people crowding the big place didn’t recognize the stars. The put down was when a few did, they were rather sneered at by the Divine Miss M (whom they all apparently adored) and ignored by EJ (Mr. Music Super Star). Happily most were charmed by Chamberlain’s shyness and won over by Cher’s smiles and David’s congeniality. Read More

Bette Midler. At KeyArena, Seattle, last night. ——————————-

“I hear you’re in the market for a new police chief,” declared Bette Midler at KeyArena last night. “Well, look no further: I’m your gal.”

Sorry, Bette – you’re a lot better at gleefully disturbing the peace than you would be enforcing it. Read More

Idina Menzel Talks ‘Daunting’ ‘Beaches’ Remake, Bette Midler and Wedding Planning (Video, too)

As she prepares for audiences to see her rendition of Bette Midler’s “Wind Beneath My Wings” in Lifetime’s upcoming Beaches remake, Idina Menzel is sharing her memories of the iconic hit.

“I grew up singing that song because I was a wedding and a bar mitzvah singer, so that was one of the most requested songs,” the GRAMMY-winning actress and singer told ET at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour in Pasadena, California, on Friday. “So, Bette has been with me more ways than she knows.” Read More

Trump Is Already Calling Putin. Bette Midler’s Response Is Perfect

Donald Trump has potentially won the Presidency of the United States, but eight days after the election has still not visited the Pentagon or sent any members of his transition team to meet with our nation’s military leaders. What he has done, however, is phone the dictator of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin. This disturbing order of events was noted by legendary singer, songwriter, and actress Bette Midler, who had this dry humor to share on Twitter: Read More

BetteBack February 18, 1973: Wrinkled Records

Winona Daily News
February 18, 1973

7-1-2012 6-30-19 PM

There Is an oldies boom in progress. Songs, singers and styles echoing an earlier time in music are becoming a minor phenomenon of the season. Think about It: Johnny Rivers has a hit single! Not only is Rivers an anachronism, but so is the song, “Rockln’ Pneumonia and The Boogie Woogie Flu”. In 1973? It doesn’t end there.

Elton John’sCrocodile Rock” is an ebullient call to the Miles: “I remember when rock was young/me and Susie had so much fun.” And then: “But the years went by and rock just died/Susie went and left me for some other guy/long nights cryln’ by the record machine/dreamln’ of my Chevy and my old blue jeans.” The cover shows a young couple going Into a movie house. He’s wearing jeans, sneakers, leather jacket, and greasy D.A. His date In flats, pony tail, gathered ankle length skirt and pink sweater. And parked at the curb, a chrome-soaked Plymouth. The Marquee Flashing “Don’t Shoot Me I’m Only The Piano Player” starring Elton John. Read More
