By Lisa Neff, Staff writer Mar 10, 2018

Musicians are calling on Congress to pass the CLASSICS Act to remedy a digital royalties problem.

More than 200 musical artists make up the chorus calling on Congress to close a loophole allowing digital radio to play pre–1972 recordings without paying royalties.

The list of musicians in the coalition begins with Abdul “Duke” Fakir and ends with Yes.

Just a sampling of other signers: Alice Cooper, Arlo Guthrie, Bette Midler, Tina Turner, Garth Brooks, Blue Oyster Cult, Bonnie Raitt, Carlos Santana, Carlene Carter, Dolly Parton, Don Henley, Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, James Taylor and the estates of Jimi Hendrix, Hank Williams, George Harrison, Janis Joplin and Frank Sinatra.

Stage Adaptation of Bette Midler Film THE ROSE Aiming for Broadway

Mister D: I just don’t know. It’s real cool seeing all these adapttions coming along from Bette Midler movies (Beaches, First Wives Club, Hocus Pocus, and now The Rose) but they could never hit the mark set by her. And different scores? Forget about it. The most it would be for me is a curiosity factor mixed in with some nostalgia.

Bette Midler On “The Rose” Character:

Bette Midler On “The Rose” Character: “No, it’s not a thinly veiled movie about Janis Joplin. Although there will be drinks, drugs, love and destruction. “She is a composite of all kinds of people trying to survive that decade.” (The Australian Women’s Weekly, 1977)

Bette Midler On The Rose

Bette Midler On The Rose: “It goes along with the martyrs. All the martyrs from Billie Holiday to Judy Garland. to Janis Joplin–have pretty much the same story. Â Those stories never grow old. People never tire of them. I don’t know if it’s something in the public conciousness or it’s just people looking for a good cry. People are fascinated by the rise and fall of these public personalities. But their story is not my story. I try to be relentlessly jolly. I want to survive. There are so many things to do in this business. I want to be able to do them all.” (The Milwaukee Journal Dec 2, 1979) – Bette Midler Read More

Amanda McBroom (Songwriter, The Rose): Golden Globe Memories

Golden Globes
Amanda McBroom: Golden Globe Memories
by Armando Gallo August 9, 2017

In 1980 director Mark Rydell’s The Rose launched Bette Midler’s career in earnest and garnered five Golden Globe nominations, including two Globes for Middler and a Best Song Award for Amanda McBroom’s titular song. Amanda was born in Burbank, August 9, 1947, the daughter of film star of the 1940s David Bruce and a drama teacher. She was destined to follow in the family footsteps and she began acting at the age of 3.  Writing songs was always a hobby for her as she worked as an actress in films and many TV shows until her late ‘20s.  The Rose was a miracle waiting to happen.

40 years later, Bette Midler’s ‘Rose’ a better rockumentary than character study

40 years later, Bette Midler‘s ‘Rose’ a better rockumentary than character study
RETRO FILM REVIEW: The Rose
July 15, 2017 Joseph Brant

You’re either old enough to have seen this film at least once, or you’re so young that you’ve not ever heard of it. There doesn’t really seem to be an in-between.

Bette Midler is an icon, a gay icon of the highest stature and though she had a moment of breakthrough to the pop culture zeitgeist a year or so ago with a Kardashian Twitter fued(link is external), and despite a coveted ‘Belle of the Ball’ appearance (and win) at this year’s Tony Awards for her universally acclaimed performance in Hello Dolly, she’s not held the American imagination as much as when she first broke through in the 1970s. Or even during her return to form, a film renaissance in the late 1980s. Read More
