    Tammi Terrell burst into her dressing room wielding a gun - Bettye LaVette Interview

    She grew up in Detroit, birthplace of Motown, where the party was never-ending, but the rivalry was as big as the bouffants. On one occasion, Motown’s Tammi Terrell burst into her dressing room wielding a gun to boast she could “out-sing” her on “any day of the week”. Berry Gordy Jr, the label’s founder, never brought her on to his sparkling roster.

    Who did sign Bettye to Motown?

    That was a wild read. I love Bettye. They released her Muscle Shoals sessions from the early seventies on vinyl a couple years ago, and it is fantastic!

    I can see Tammi doing something like this! Tammi started out young, so she had to be able to take care of herself.
