Tina Turner, the Queen of Rock 'N' Roll, has died at the age of 83. The iconic singer died at her home in Küsnach near Zurich Switzerland today following a long, unspecified illness. Her representatives confirmed her death, saying: 'With her the world loses a music legend and role model.' She is survived by two of her four sons - two preceded her in death - and her husband, Erwin Bach. Born Anna-Mae Bullock in 1939 in Brownsville, Tennessee, to Zelma and Floyd Bullock, Turner overcame a turbulent childhood during which she was partly raised by her grandmother to become a musical sensation.
In her 70’s she could still out sing and out perform any of the over produced pandered to twinkies cluttering up the airwaves & tv’s today. 50 years from now, they won’t make the trivia pursuit deck, but we’ll still hear Proud Mary and Simply The Best.

she sure was.
