Remembering Ike Turner

Ike Turner, half of the great rockin’ music duo, Ike and Tina Turner, passed away yesterday. He was 76.

Ike and Tina performed such hits as “Proud Mary,” “A Fool in Love” and “Shake a Tail Feather.”

Tina Turner—with or without Ike—is one of my favorites. I’ve had Ike & Tina songs on the iPod almost all morning long. (Which is pretty much like every other morning.)

Check out this clip of Ike & Tina Turner performing live in 1974 on “The Midnight Special,” which ran on television from 1972 to 1981:
