After propelling to fame with Ike Turner, marrying him, divorcing him then starting a solo career, Tina Turner became the most famous female rock idol of the 80s and 90s.  Tina has sold around 180 million records worldwide and everybody knows, when Tina steps on the stage, the performance is going to be spectacular.

 
The unforgettable rock anthem of the 80s “What’s Love Got To Do With It?”

In the 80s, Tina was crowned with ‘The Most Famous Legs in Show Business’ and ‘The Queen of Rock and Roll’ by Rolling Stone magazine. I’d personally throw in an award for her hair as that rocked too. Influences of Tina can be heavily seen in the stage shows of modern icon, Beyonce but there’ll only ever be one Tina.
