I’m dropping everything, as is appropriate, to pay tribute to Betty Davis. It will be a work in progress, so keep coming back.
We’ll start with some memorabilia shared by the brother of her one-time guitarist, Cordell Dudley.
Phil Cox, the creator of Davis’ biopic “They Say I’m Different,” contacted me from Sudan. He and I will record a short piece for The Soul Show’s tribute episode, which is planned for Women’s History Month Weekend 1. We were in contact during the making of the film, and he asked me to record what was to become the opening narration.
[The 2/12/22 TSS program will have a mini-tribute as part of the overall BHM theme.]
[2/11/22] I’m also planning to capture some observations about Betty’s performance at the Alpine. It may have been her only Pittsburgh performance.
