Tina Turner - The Queen of Rock 'n' Roll

Who can resist this diva's vocals ripping through song after song?

The Queen of Rock 'n' Roll and one of the world's most popular entertainers, Tina Turner has been called the most successful female rock artist and was named "one of the greatest singers of all time" by Rolling Stone.

Tina Turner

Rolling Stone (11/14/96)
...Turner's raspy, robust alto and her ability to carry herself with both dignity and chutzpah are as formidable as they were when she recorded the incendiary 'River Deep, Mountain High' three decades ago...

Her records have sold nearly 180 million copies worldwide. She has sold more concert tickets than any other solo music performer in history. She is known for her energetic stage presence, powerful vocals, career longevity, and widespread appeal.

Vibe (10/96)

...Not only does this rambunctious, wiggly 57-year-old woman still immolate a mike, she can open a show just by asking,

`So...do you want some action?'...

Her musical career led to film roles, beginning with a prominent role as The Acid Queen in the 1975 film Tommy, and an appearance in Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. She starred opposite Mel Gibson as Aunty Entity in Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome for which she received the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actress in a Motion Picture, and her version of the film's theme, "We Don't Need Another Hero", was a hit single. She appeared in the 1993 film Last Action Hero.

What the Critics Say:
When one magic formula works, there's little point in looking for another one, especially when new studio albums only turn up twice every decade. Your audience appeal doesn't get enough exposure to pall.

Ike & Tina Period

What's Love Got To Do With It? (1993) DVD - Tina Turner, that dynamic diva of pop/soul/R&B from the '60s to the '90s, sings like a woman whose life story is every bit as rough and tough as her voice. And What's Love Got to Do With It, based on her autobiographical account (in I, Tina, written with Kurt Loder) of her years under the iron fist of her abusive husband &  musical partner/Svengali Ike, is further proof of what we've always known about Tina: She's what you call a survivor. The movie is sort of the Disney version of Tina Turner's story--a glossy but thoroughly enjoyable, old- fashioned showbiz biopic with laughs, tears, great music, and outrageous (but faithful) period decor, costumes, makeup, and hairstyles. Our Heroine triumphs not only over the rigorous demands of her career in the music business, but finally manages to bust out of her troubled, violent marriage as well and become her own person. This is a movie that'll have you shouting at the top of your lungs: "You go, girl!"
