Tina Turner

  b. 1939 | American singer

At The Bottom
 1976

She had less than a dollar in her pocket; to make matters worse, she owed hundreds of thousands of dollars...

Ike and Tina Turner were among the most important rhythm and blues performers during the 1960s and 1970s, but their success (and marriage) had always been hindered by Ike Turner’s violent temper, drug use, and refusal to allow anyone to help manage or guide their careers.  Ike’s erratic and domineering temper drove away one musician after another.  After producing a long list of hits — including a famous cover of “Proud Mary” by Credence Clearwater Revival — the couple faded from view after 1973.    Ike’s abusive behavior toward his wife grew worse, and Tina finally left him in July 1976.  She had less than a dollar in her pocket; to make matters worse, she owed hundreds of thousands of dollars to tour promoters as well as the IRS.
