There’s no rock and roll without recognizing the Queen. Following the announcement of her passing on May 24 at the age of 83 , we remember the talent and tenacity that made her a legend. Anna Mae Bullock was born on Nov. 26, 1939, in the small town of Nutbush, TN. Coming from a sharecropping family, she found herself leaning into her musical talents. The exploration led her to join Ike Turner and the Kings of Rhythm. Bullock hit her stride in the 1960s, and after marrying Ike Turner, the powerful vocalist started performing under the stage name Tina Turner with “Proud Mary” the highlight of their show.
