    RIP Tina.
    I saw Ike and Tina and the Ikettes at Hammersmith Odeon in about 1974... she made a strong impression on a teenager!
    Here's another classic

    Can't say I listen to her music (with or without Ike) but she had real star quality and came across as a good human being.

    Whenever I hear her name, I always remember a newspaper photo of her in full Mad Max Thunderdome get-up, beneath which was the caption, "Tina Turner: Buddhist".

    Always makes me smile.

    RIP Turner Turner

    Sad news.

    A great performer that put on a good show. I was more a fan of her 60s & 70s stuff but it was easy to see her star quality in the 80s & 90s.

    R.I.P. Tina

    Met my wife because she walked to the jukebox in the pub, put on Nutbush City Limits, and asked the barman to turn it up.
    Hope Tina’s ‘heaven’ is rocking today:)

    RIP, a true star as well as a unique singer

    Mullardman Moderately extreme...

    Like Dean, I was originally attracted to her 60's output. Singles like So Fine and Anything You Wasn't Born With which barely trroubled the charts were in my playlist when I was DJing..but she undoubtedly swept all before her later.
    A fabulous woman.
    RIP Tina.

    RIP, my favourite song was always the ballad on the live album, The River I think it was called. An icon for many of our generation no doubt.

    Martyn Ware has been retweeting a lot of really good tributes to Tina Turner from within the music industry etc, as such his timeline is a good way of reading them curated together (Twitter).

    Saw her twice, Murrayfield and Hampden park with several years in between and both performances were stellar

    blossomchris I feel better than James Brown

    saw her with Ike and Tina review at Stevenage Locarno, circa 67/8. The strobe lighting was superb. She could certainly get the crowd going, and I recall an opening slow song line of 'I have something on my mind' and a audience member shouted out
    'hair' and she looked down at smiled at him.
