I’m into punk, rock, 80’s new-wave and a dash of prog-rock…
Yet Tina Turner was my Queen.
Maybe because she was a punk – in the way she rose up from the abuse and misuse she experienced from Ike and made her own musical experience.
Rest in peace Tina:

Through your blessing, grace, and guidance, through the power of the light that streams from you:
May all my negative karma, destructive emotions, obscurations, and blockages be purified and removed,
May I know myself forgiven for all the harm I may have thought and done,
May I accomplish this profound practice of phowa, and die a good and peaceful death,
And through the triumph of my death, may I be able to benefit all other beings, living or dead.

I was at the Pilates studio when someone mentioned this, and for the next few minutes I just couldn't concentrate. She was an icon and incredible role model for women getting out of abusive relationships. I remember maybe ten years ago thinking, man I wish I'd had those legs when I was 30, much less 70. May she rest in peace.

I think my favorite song is River Deep/Mountain High. I will never understand why it did so well in Europe, but was a flop here in the U.S.

She was definitely one of a kind, like Aretha Franklin. I've been sort of keeping track as I knew her health was failing. She was definitely a surivor.

I love Tina Turner. She is on my mix for singing in the car. She was Simply The Best!

She was an amazing woman, and a heck of a talent.
Fun Fact - She was a St Louis girl. She and Ike performed at high school dances when my parents were in school.

I too am a Punk Rock fan and have a love for 80s New Wave [Bigger how am I just learning we have this in common?!?!]

And Tina Turner was a woman to be admired. She was a Beautiful BadAss with one amazing set of legs.

Rest in Peace.
