Would have been better if she hadn't abandoned racist America to live in Switzerland where she became a naturalized Swiss citizen and renounced her US citizenship. Never had much time for her after that.

She entertained million for a bunch of decades, a great talent. May she Rest In Peace.
She did, and it was more than that with her. The abuse she took from Ike (not to mention the rest of the record industry) was unspeakable. But she prevailed to beat 'em all, just by keeping her eye on the ball and focusing on what she was good at. And being merciless in victory to those who didn't deserve any. Knew who her friends were and more importantly, who they weren't. There's a lesson in there.

Mark Knopfler from Dire Straits wrote that song Private Dancer, which Tina Turner sang and made a hit. Somehow Jeff Beck ended up playing the guitar solo on that song, and Mark Knopfler said that was the 2nd ugliest guitar solo ever recorded. That's just some trivia.

I just listened to it - it was pretty anemic to say the least. :cool:
