The life of the Best

Nutbush, Tennessee, is not a place of longing. Nevertheless, the world knows how it looked like in this place, on Highway 19, as Anna Mae Bullock in front of 80 years, for decades, was born, before she was as Tina Turner to the Popsuperstar. There was a liquor factory, a school house, a jail, a toilet house and a Church, in the then all – cotton field workers, such as the jail brothers on Sunday to the sermon appeared.

Tina Turner sang, your memory of the place of birth and place of her Childhood not as a ballad, not a Blues, because of its inviolable voice acting, you had to paint "Nutbush City Limits" as a mini, sharp Rock-'n'-Roll Song to perform and the Nutbush-spatial coordinates – "a church house gin house / a school house out house" – almost a shout out.

"Nutbush City Limits" is a reminder of how Tina Turner came from. Because you, the now lives in Küsnacht on lake Zurich with her husband Erwin Bach, in a house with the sounding name of the "Chateau Algonquin", has had a "terrible life", you said recently the "New York Times" has told.

he could Destroy you has not included

This is a terrible life: depends on It, especially with a man she "Nutbush City Limits" in 1973. This man is Ike Turner. The Rock-’n’-Roll pioneer forced her her name, because Tina was rhyming on the name of the Comic book jungle Queen Sheena, the Ike liked. And he chained them with this new name, he had to protect himself.

"He called me "my Million dollars". He was dependent on the fact that I brought the money home, he paid the bills, and, therefore, he would never let me go," wrote Tina Turner in her memoir "My Love Story", released a year ago. In 1976, three years after "Nutbush City Limits", which was to be their last Hit, escaped you in front of your Drangsalierer. Because Ike and humiliated them, dragged beat you even in the wedding night in a brothel and led her to the edge of suicide. But he could not destroy the will to live the fighter Tina Turner.

Fight was not only against Ike Turner, but from early in the morning. Anna Mae Bullock was a kid anything other than a desire; the relationship with her mother was characterised by a lack of understanding, over the years, she lived with her grandparents. They but found a refuge in the spacious nature of the home place, in the music and in the Entertainment.

And so she took as an 18-Year-old the microphone, sang the role of Ike Turner in St. Louis, where she lived at the time. In 1958, a continued Ike, "Little Ann," first as a background singer, and in 1960 he invented the Ike and Tina Turner Revue, which was increasingly becoming a Tina Turner Show, because she was a stage with their dancing, their long legs and their spatial voice fullness, the Sensation on the show.

her voice was back but not only on strength, volume, and ecstasy trimmed, even if the wilderness concept "rock singer", used by the German rock criticism just like it was presumably invented because of Tina Turner. You could then sing a different one, is heard in one of the greatest recordings of their career.

That was in 1966, as it has in the case of Phil Spector, another Monster of pop history – the Song "River Deep – Mountain High" sung. Like Tina Turner's voice shines since the gentle and will not be overwhelmed by the orchestral Wall of Sound of the producers; how they triumphed finally over the choir and the orchestra when she sings of the greatness of her love, then this indicates that imperturbability, which you never gave up, even as her career after the breakup of Ike lay in ruins. Back when you was broke, for years, nobody wanted to work with her and you as a sad Act on the stages of Las Vegas was threatening to go down.

But it was the 80s, this strange decade, and Tina Turner was a Superstar followed. As an "overnight sensation" was celebrated the 45-Year-old, as the Album "Private Dancer" in 1984, evolved into a million-seller. It was treated as if they come from a history-free space.

But the "new" Tina Turner appeared as a pop singer, which left the black Soul and Rock 'n' Roll almost entirely, and now also the Songs of David Bowie, with whom she was a close friend, or Mark Knopfler interpreted. She appeared on the big screen as the antagonist from Mad Max and blared with "We Don't Need Another Hero", the matching heroes anthem that not only worked in the Hollywood action cinema is no trace too wide, but also the stadiums filled.

Tina Turner and loved it again, the show business. She showed her legs, shook their wigs, which concealed their original hair since the days with Ike, celebrated the Sex, or implied it at least, as you in 1985 at Live Aid from Mick Jagger , the left in the 60s, his dance steps from her stole, the mini skirt from the body tear. And shortly before the decade had come to an end, she sang the Song "The Best", those winning hits that competed in the stadiums now with Queens "We Are the Champions".

in 1993, her life was made into a movie, "What's Love Got to Do with It" is the Biopic with Angela Bassett as Tina, the inflamed old wounds, and suffered punishment led to the side of Ike Turner, also a posthumous Blockbuster audience. But she sang on, about the James Bond Song "Golden Eye" (1995), went to the turn of the Millennium, on a first farewell tour. In 2009, she retired after a second Tour of the stages definitely.

This is the life in the spotlight Tina Turner missing, said Tina Turner in the "New York Times"reporter" in Küsnacht yet. Because: "I had enough of it, to sing and to make everyone else happy." Other according to the stage of your life, slip the other in the role of this Rock-’n’-Roll and Pop-pioneer: The Musical-performers of this world, for example, currently on Broadway. Or Beyoncé, whose career would not be without an Idol like Tina Turner to imagine.

When Tina Turner's lasting presence of shows, and then also this: The history of Rock ’n’ Roll is not just a male hero story. But she found her momentum by African-American women such as Anna Mae Bullock, was born today 80 years ago in a non-place, something like Nutbush.
