Ike and Tina Turner in the 60's

Turner was born Anna Mae Bullock in Nutbush, Tennessee to Zelma Currie, a factory worker, and Floyd Richard Bullock, a Baptist deacon, farm overseer and factory worker.[10] Turner and her elder sister, Alline Bullock, were abandoned by their father and temporarily by their mother. They moved from Nutbush, Tennessee to St. Louis to reunite with their mother in 1956. In St. Louis, Anna Bullock met Ike Turner, a noted pioneer of rock and roll, and later asked him if she could sing for him. Ike was initially skeptical, but after much persistence on Anna's part, Ike Turner eventually decided to let her perform for him.

Anna Mae first started working with Ike Turner in 1956. He gave her the stage name of Tina Turner.

When a singer scheduled to record the famous R&B song, "A Fool In Love", didn't appear, Tina stepped in and recorded the song instead. "A Fool In Love" was a huge R&B hit reaching #2 crossing over to the top 30 of the US pop chart. After this, Ike changed the name of his band to the Ike and Tina Turner Revue. Throughout the 1960s and into the 1970s, Ike & Tina rose to superstardom. As times and musical styles changed, Tina developed a unique stage persona as a singer-dancer-performer that people very much enjoyed in live concert.

Tina Turner and the Revue's backup singers, The Ikettes, wove intricate and electrifying dance routines into their performances and influenced many other artists including Mick Jagger (for whose Rolling Stones 1969 American Tour they opened). Ike and Tina Turner recorded a string of hits in the 1960s and early 1970s, including "A Fool In Love," "It's Gonna Work Out Fine," "I Idolize You," "Nutbush City Limits" and "River Deep, Mountain High" with producer Phil Spector in his Wall of sound style. They also carved out a successful niche for themselves by covering songs made popular by other artists such as "Come Together", "Honky Tonk Woman," and "I Want to Take You Higher". In fact, their high-energy cover version of Creedence Clearwater Revival's 1968 "Proud Mary" remains Turner's signature hit and one of Tina's longest enduring standards. "Proud Mary" was the duo's greatest commercial success peaking at number four in March 1971. "Proud Mary" also won a Grammy for "Best R&B Vocal Performance By A Duo or Group."

While many of their original recordings failed to chart, the Ike and Tina Turner Revue was well known for its live act and electrifying television appearances. Its supporters included The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Sly Stone, Janis Joplin, Cher, James Brown, Ray Charles, Elton John and Elvis Presley. The band was always performing anywhere and everywhere. A one-night gig at a small predominately black supper club in the South could be followed in the same week by a show at a major venue in Las Vegas or a national TV appearance. Ike acted as the group's manager and lead musical director, calling all the shots and ruling the act -- and Tina -- with an iron fist. While a fine musician and an early rock-and-roll influence, Ike's control of the Revue's management, recording contracts and performances eventually led to their decline as his drug abuse worsened. This controlling (and often violent) atmosphere caused the musicians and backup singers to come and go frequently, and Tina later reported being isolated and physically abused by Ike on a regular basis for most of their marriage. “Rolling Stones” redirects here. ...

Tina has four sons: Ike Jr. and Michael (from her former husband Ike's previous relationship), Ronnie (son of Ike and Tina; born 1961), and Craig (born 1960, son of Tina and Raymond Hill, who was a saxophone player in Ike's band).


1970s

Tina in the 70s

By the mid-1970s, Tina's personal life and marriage began to deteriorate. Ike's drug use led to increasingly erratic and physically abusive behavior. Their act was losing speed largely due to Ike's refusal to accept outside management of their recording or touring as well as the cost of maintaining a rather voracious alleged cocaine habit. Touring dates began to decline and record sales were down. Having opened his own recording studio - Bolic Sound - following the lucrative success of Proud Mary, Ike produced Tina's first solo album, Tina Turns the Country On! in 1974. It failed to make an impact on the charts, as did the follow-up, Acid Queen (1975), released to tie in with Tina's critically acclaimed big-screen debut in the role of the same name in The Who's rock opera, Tommy.

After a final vicious beating before an appearance in Dallas over the Fourth of July, 1976, Tina abruptly left Ike fleeing with nothing more than thirty-six cents and a gas-station credit card. She spent the next few months hiding from Ike, staying with various friends and relying on food stamps to exist.

Tina credits her newfound Buddhist faith with giving her the courage to eventually strike out on her own. By walking out on Ike in the middle of a tour, she learned she was legally responsible to tour promoters for the cancelled tour. Needing to earn a living, Tina decided to strike out on her own as a solo performer pulling a lounge act together and supplementing her income with TV appearances on shows like The Hollywood Squares, Donny and Marie, The Sonny & Cher Show and even the The Brady Bunch Hour.

Tina finalized her divorce in 1978 after 18 years of marriage, later accusing Ike of years of severe spousal abuse and rampant drug addiction in her autobiography I, Tina that was later made into the film What's Love Got to Do with It?. To put the marriage (and Ike) behind her, Tina walked away with no money or property, asking for and retaining only the sole use of the stage name Ike had given her, and assuming responsibility for the huge debts incurred by the cancelled tour, as well as a significant IRS lien.

Tina ended the decade by releasing her first album since her separation from Ike. Rough (1978) was a departure from the R&B sound of the Revue, and featured strong readings of rock songs, demonstrating the direction in which she wished her musical career to progress. The record did not sell well, and 1979's Love Explosion - an attempt to attract the disco market - was similarly overlooked, leaving Tina wondering if she would ever shake off the bad reputation with which her association with Ike Turner had left her.

While she was largely considered to be unmarketable by the American recording industry, her popularity as a top stage act never faded in Europe and other parts of the world. Capitol signed her to a limited deal with their UK label. She divided her time between appearing at small venues in the US in order to keep herself in the public eye but continued to sell out major venues in Europe and other parts of the world despite her problems in the United States.


When Tina Turner's version of Let's Stay Together was released in the United Kingdom, it became a huge hit that peaked at number six and marked a major turning point in Turner's solo career. Capitol released the record in the US where it made the Top 20 and was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance - Female. It was a major success on the R&B charts reaching #4 and also reached #1 on the US Dance/Club Play Charts. Given this turn of events, Capitol Records was quickly forced to review their previous assessment of Turner's chartability and put forth the resources to let her record an album.

In the Spring of 1984, Tina Turner released her fifth solo album, Private Dancer. The album was a huge success and established Turner as a credible solo artist. Private Dancer charted a total of five Top 40 singles and three singles reached the Top Ten in the United States. She was one of the few women to accomplish this during the 80's. The first single, Let's Stay Together peaked at number 24 on Billboard Hot 100. The next release was the Billboard Hot 100 number-one hit What's Love Got to Do With It, won Record Of The Year, Song of the Year (won by the songwriters Graham Lyle and Terry Britten) and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance at the 1985 Grammy Awards. The third single, Better Be Good To Me reached number five on the charts and won the 1985 Best Female Rock Vocal Performance Grammy. Originally, Tina hated the song What's Love Got To Do With It because she felt it was too "Pop" and not "rough" enough. She thought that Better Be Good to Me should be the second single from the album but Capitol convinced her otherwise and Tina grew fond of What Love Got To Do With It quickly as it inched up the American charts. The album's title track, written by Mark Knopfler, peaked at number seven on the Top 100 in early 1985. The Private Dancer album additionally received a Grammy nomination for Album of the Year.

Tina Turner began touring extensively to pay the bills and released several solo albums in the 1970s, but her career stalled until teaming up in 1982 with BEF for a remake of the Temptations' "Ball of Confusion" and recording a remake of Al Green's "Let's Stay Together," which drew the attention of Capitol Records.
Angela Bassett won the role of Tina Turner in the movie (Whitney Houston and Halle Berry had also auditioned for the role) and was nominated for an Oscar for her performance.
Turner was offered the role of "Shug Avery" in the film "The Color Purple", but turned it down because she thought it would bring back memories of her time with Ike.
