Ike Turner Dies

A A

Derided and scorned by the larger culture since I, Tina, Ike Turner's reputation as a wife-beater has eclipsed his legacy as a rock'n'roll pioneer. But even though "Hey relax, Ike!" has become shorthand for "Oooh, don't hit me, man," Turner, who died this morning at age 76, still has his place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And on the "Best of Tim Meadows" Saturday Night Live DVD.
