Betty Davis

I sat down with John Ballon, arguably the world’s leading expert on Betty Davis and close friend of hers, to talk about her incredible life and work. We got into why her music was so ahead of its time and the legacy it was continuing, the influence she had on the direction of Miles Davis’ later career, and the impact she has on Prince along with much much more. Betty is an icon in her own right and I can’t wait for you to learn more about who she is as both a person and an artist.
