TINA TURNER: My Love Story

TINA TURNER & DEBORAH DAVIS    Book Number: 87825    Product format: Hardback

One of the very best musical shows ever in the West End of London is Tina: The Tina Turner Musical on which the superstar herself had great control and input. Her book is an explosive and inspiring story of a woman who dared to break any barriers put in her way with grit, energy, heart and soul, finding grace and purpose even in her darkest hours. 'There's always been an emotion in my voice because it reached back to the life I was living. When there were tears on stage, it wasn't Hollywood, it was real.' Tina Turner is the longest-reigning queen of rock and roll and a living legend. Here she sets the record straight about her illustrious career and complicated personal life. From her early years in Nutbush, Tennessee, to her rise to fame alongside her husband Ike Turner, to the phenomenal success in the 1980s and beyond, here are her trials, triumphs and everything in between. She shares stories from her years working alongside the biggest names in music, including Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, David Bowie, Beyoncé, and writes about unexpectedly meeting the love of her life in 1986 and marrying him 27 years later. First as a member of the Ike and Tina Turner Revue, success followed with a sting of hits including 'River Deep - Mountain High' and the 1971 hit 'Proud Mary'. She divorced Ike in 1978 and rebuilt her career, launching a string of hits including her 1984 solo album, Private Dancer. Our favourite here at Bibliophile is 'Nutbush City Limits'. And this girl's certainly got legs, and here are dozens of her favourite Peter Lindbergh publicity photos including hanging off the Eiffel Tower, showing her legs on Rolling Stone front cover, performing with Sammy Davis Jr. and showing off her figure in designer figure-hugging dresses to her kidney dialysis. Colour and black and white photos, 260pp. She's simply the best! Remainder mark.
