I know it feels too soon but 83 is a pretty good run.

Share your thoughts, personal connections, memories of Tina Turner.

    What a legend. She will be missed.

    Turns out she's the same age as my father in law and yet as a genXer I loved her music far more than he ever has.

    I was shocked. Yelled out "Oh my god!"
    Fortunately I was in the warehouse with fans going so I didn't freak anyone out. But still.

    My high school graduating class song was Simply the Best. I don't recall how old the song was at the time, and I didn't have much in common with my classmates, but I remember being really pleased that someone thought to use it. Such a good song.

    It was a simpler and better time. She did like a whole campaign for that season I remember. I’ll forever associate Tina turner with NRL and like barbecues as a kid with cousins, families and neighbours over watching the footy

    Shows how much I know.. this morning when What a Day was talking about her, they said her breakup with Ike Turner was in the mid-70s (like 74?). So she spent a decade rebuilding her career after that. For some reason I thought it happened in the middle of the 80s.

    Just an absolute legend. The WAD folks said it was a life well lived.. which.. I agree with, other than the whole domestic abuse and violence bits. No one deserves that, no matter what comes out of it.
