I saw this fool once. I was at a James Brown concert over at ye olde Humphrey's(?) by the bay. It was a great JB show, but my favorite part of the whole night was when this son of a B, Ike Turner, walked on stage, guitar strapped on, plugged himself in, played a solo and walked off. Never did he once look at James Brown OR the crowd. It was pretty bad ass.
It's a shame he sullied his fucking name by doing those beatings. Fucking idiot. Realistically, his obit will always read: "Rock & Roll Creator And Shameful Ogre Of A Man...Ike Turner 1931-2007". Fucking idiot, but damn the music was unfuckwittable.
Like Brandon said, come show some 'spects for the music tomorrow night at Tower. I have two I can't WAIT to play.
