Ike Turner 1931 - 2007: Today's Cartoon

Despite his accomplishments as a "rock n' roll pioneer", it appears that Ike Turner will probably be remembered more for "hits" on his ex-wife than on the pop charts during the 60s and 70s.

To those who grew up after the detonation of his marriage to Tina Turner, "Ike Turner" became a synonym for domestic abuse... thanks in no small part to the Hollywood biopic "What's Love Got To Do With It" and its Oscar nominated performance by Lawrence Fishburne.
