At least Ike beat her to death.

I had a couple of backstage passes to a Tina Turner show in 1987.
I traded them for a pair of World Series tickets.

/Happy B-day

If shiat goes right-side up, I need to hit a drag show if Turner's retired.

One of the best New Year's Eve parties I've attended had Eartha Kitt doing torch songs for hours.

Remember that episode of family matters when Laura was Tina Turner?

That's good stuff man

I'm sure that if you dig into her bio you'll find some weird stuff. But given the life she's lived in the times, circumstances and shiat that she's had to deal with... JFC I can't think of anyone else who could have pulled off all that even on a good day, let alone maintaining her presence over several decades. She's not just a national treasure... if there were such a thing, she'd be a one-woman UNESCO Heritage Site.

I wonder if she gets paid for every time they play her saying "Welcome to Thundreome" on the big screen at the Thunderdome in Tampa Bay.

Tina Turner is the greatest, and back in March when I saw PBS was showing her last performance in London at Wembley Stadium I simply couldn't walk away from the tv until it was over.

/That voice.
//And those legs.

Thank you, Tina. Just-
Thank you!

I remember her onstage doing "Proud Mary" strutting with women a third her age and making it look easy. Incredible person.

Tina Turner is one of those personalities that transcends genres and eras (much as with Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson and Freddie Mercury and Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson), and is simply great, period.

Perhaps not the absolute best. but a fine moment nonetheless.

Mick Jagger has openly admitted his "dancing" style is trying to copy Tina.

That's number three by the slimmest of margins. Actually, depending on the day it's number two. Goldfinger is the one that every other Bond song tries to imitate at least a little bit. Bond theme song is a specific genre b/c of Goldfinger.

Behold the greatness of Tina turner singing Nut Bush City Limits live, and skip to 3 minutes in to see her dancing on a moving platform... but at about 8 minutes in she starts running and walking on the narrowest part in high heels.
