Queen Of Rock ‘n’ Roll’ Tina Turner Dies At 83 After Long Illness

The Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll, American-born singer Tina Turner passed away at the age of 83 yesterday. After suffering from a long-time illness, the I don’t wanna lose you singer bid the world adieu peacefully in her own home in Küsnacht. 

Turner started her career in the music industry during the early rock ‘n’ roll years, more than 5 decades ago in the 1950s, before evolving into a full-time MTV phenomenon. 

The 8-Grammy winner left an abusive relationship and an unrewarding farming community to become the Queen of rock ‘n’ roll. 

A top recording artist of her time, Turner is memorable for epitomizing the 1980s style – she strutted the streets of New York in stilettos, a mini skirt, and a cropped denim jacket for What’s Love Got to Do with It, a chart-topping song of the time! 

With her impeccable taste for bounty-worded ballads and musical experimentation, Turner was the perfect fit for the pop landscape of the 80s – this was a time when fans loved electronically produced music and hated hippie-era idealism. 

Interestingly, Turner won 6 of her 8 Grammys alone in the 80s. And that’s not her sole achievement. In that one decade, Turner landed dozens of songs in the Top 40s, including Private Dancer, Better Be Good To Me, Typical Male, and The Best. Her Rio de Janeiro show in 1988 drew in 180,000 people – to date, this stays as one of the biggest concert audiences, and that too for a solo performer. 

By this time, Turner had already ended her abusive marriage to Ike Turner, a guitarist.

Fellow singer Mick Jagger expressed sadness on Turner’s death, “She helped me so much when I was young, and I will never forget her.” The Rolling Stones described Tina as “inspiring, warm, funny and generous.” 

Bryan Admas mentioned, “the world just lost one hell of a powerhouse of a woman.” Adams was paired with Turner on It’s Only Love in 1985
