RIP Ike Turner

Ike Turner died today in San Diego, aged 76.

His whole horrific drug-monster, wife beating thing hugely overshadowed his numerous contributions to blues, soul and girl groups. Plus homeboy basically invented rock and roll. (Well...him and a few other cats. See "Rocket 88" - that's 1951!)

Come to Tower Bar tomorrow night and help us pay our respects.
