TINA TURNER, QUEEN OF ROCK N ROLL, DEAD AT 83

Tina Turner, the raspy-voiced fireball who overcame domestic abuse and industry ambivalence to emerge as one of the rock and soul’s brassiest, most rousing, and most inspirational performers, has died. She was 83.

The iconic singer died at her home in Küsnach near Zurich Switzerland today following a long, unspecified illness.
