He was a talented musician. I recently got into solo stuff. His album A Black Man's Soul is very good.

Ike Turner was a pioneer. He was not the first musician to became addicted to drugs and assault someone. Unfortunately, many talented musicians have a lot of personal issues. Al Green, James Brown, John Lennon, Axl Rose, Chuck Berry, and etc. all were just as bad (some worse) than Ike yet they have been forgiven for their transgressions and are held to a high regard. Maybe because they were stars and Ike's specialty was collaboration. Their spouses were never stars themselves like Tina. Ike helped a lot of musicians and singers behind-the-scenes as a songwriter, producer, bandleader and talent scout. Little Richard wrote the intro to Ike's autobiography. There is no Tina Turner without Ike Turner. His contributions are too important to dismiss. Mental health isn't discussed enough. Ike had undiagnosed bipolar disorder for many years so drugs worsened his condition. Despite his faults, he still made a positive contribution in his lifetime. RIP Ike

No ones better than another? So Florence Nightingale isn't a better person than say Ted Bundy. Come on! He chose to beat up his wife. He brought his bad reputation on himself. That doesn't take away anything from him as a music talent though.

the man is dead, you all shouldn`t talk ill of the dead. its not for you 2 voice judgement only god can do that. don`t go casting stones we`re all sinners no one better than another.

I agree with Tasha657, Ike`s music may have been some of the greatest early Rock and Roll, but he will forever be remembered as the wife beater he was. Some masculine legacy!! Coward is more like it.

Tasha657Tasha657Mar 2, 2008

im sorry but i have never had any respect for him since he beat up Tina Turner!
