Sad RIP Tina

I saw her perform with Ike in a little basement nightclub in the 70s. She was within touching distance of me. Years later I couldn’t believe that the raw (but wonderful) singer we’d seen was the same Tina Turner.

@Ohpleeeease Wow! Must be amazing thinking back to them. Lucky ❤️

So many wonderful people dying of late

RIP Tina. I've always been happy for her that she found love again after being with Ike.

Topseyt123 · 24/05/2023 20:32

RIP Tina. What a legend.

@PickledMuffin I’m ashamed to say I was too young to appreciate her, clubs being a lot less finicky about under age drinking in those days!

Now that is a sad loss.

I only saw her tribute show in London on Sunday! I've been singing her songs ever since so feels really shocking that she has gone. Amazing singer and amazing lady. Love her, RIP.

People do tend to die when they’re old!

I saw her in concert when she was 69/70 - you would not believe her energy. I loved all her music. I used to like along and pretend I was her!!!

GettingStuffed · 24/05/2023 20:38

I thought she already had.

She went on stage with a broken jaw once thanks to Ike, and taught Mick Jagger some proper Moves. Bless her, what a woman.

How sad. She was simply the best.

Fabulous woman. A major part of the soundtrack of my youth. With thanks and love, Tina xx

AndrexPuppy · 24/05/2023 20:50

A powerhouse to the end.

Lifeomars · 24/05/2023 20:52

This has made me shed a few tears, what a stunningly inspirational woman, great singer, great dancer, incredible stage presence and so brave and beautiful too.

They often play her concerts on sky arts and she is amazing, I worked out she would have been early 70s in one of them and she can out perform her backing dancers/singers who are obviously all in their 20s

There is masses of her stuff on YouTube, she was breathtakingly brilliant, a total one off.
