I saw Tina Turner live in Calgary probably 20 years ago, beyond thunderdome tour. Amazing performer.

We could do worse.



Its a shame that Ike Turner is primarily known as a wife beater. If he could have behaved himself he would have had a pretty good musical legacy to be known for.

I saw Ike and her and the Ikettes, with Claudia Linnear, Mick Jagger's original Brown Sugar, on the festival circuit in '68. Still more R&B than rock, pre-Proud Mary and pre-cocaine abuse, River deep and mountain high, yeah yeah yeah. Awesome shows, celestial energy.

Let's not bash the guy; he was a great arranger and built one heck of an act, even before Tina came along and kicked into a new gear.

who cares, the guy was a tool. He beat his wife and was a junkie.

Rest in Dirt.

a true entertainment scumbag.

Thanks Gigi. Sad deal, being hooked so bad that you can't give it up even at 76.

Judge not, lest ye be judged.
