Tina Turner

Debating the merits of someone who is already in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with another group is commonplace here. Debating the merits of someone who eclipsed her former act in terms of success and notoriety though not necessarily musically is a little new for us. We can’t help but feel that Tina Turner falls in to that category.

Already inducted as one half of Ike and Tina, the woman considered by some as the Queen of Rock and Roll presents a very interesting case. The music of Ike and Tina Turner was an amazing blend of R&B and Rock and as much as Tina was the perfect woman in front, a lot of the music was generated by Ike. When Tina emerged from the spousal abuse of her former husband, Tina Turner arguably had the greatest comeback in music history. Tina may not have had the driving R&B sound behind her, but the Rock voice was still there and it now had a sense of joy that was not present before. With the lack of gender equity in the Hall, an induction for Tina Turner is certainly possible; and wouldn’t it be a great show for the Hall if she was inducted?

Wasn't Ike and Tina inducted in 1994?

You make an interesting point, at least inadvertentl y. It's called a "Hall of Fame" not a Hall of Honor or morality.
Which begs the question, should a artist's behavior in his or her personal life affect consideratio n for the Hall?
I say no, if their contribution stands on it's own and is Hall-worthy.

That being said. The justificatio n for Pete Rose to be in the Baseball HOF is that his contribution was not only great but world class. He should be in the Hall along with a full description of all his failings and transgressions.

So I say, either change the name of the Hall of Fame or let people be inducted or excluded based on their accomplishme nts in the record books and not their extracurricu lar activities.

Tina Turner owns one of the greatest comebacks/re surrections/ musical makeovers of the Rock and Soul Era, but after delivering the blockbuster Private Dancer, Turner did not continue to grab for the brass ring. And I think that was deliberate-- she seemed to have proved her point, that she didn't need Ike to sustain her career, and eventually she withdrew from from the limelight while still a champ.

So, it is hard to say that her solo career is Hall-worthy. Her 1970s solo material was mediocre, and her '80s stuff was well-execute d, eclectic, but not innovative R&B with rock overtones. Turner's is a great, even inspirationa l story, but it's not enough to get her into Cleveland on her own.

However, and although he is certainly (and justifiably) the villain here, I do think there is a case for Ike Turner to be put in on his own as an Early Influence: He was an important bandleader, songwriter, and talent-spott er during rock's formative years. It's not an ironclad case, but his case is--dare I say?--strong er than Tina's.

She should be in on Nutbush alone.

She's the Queen of Rock! nobody is arguing if the King should be in (unless your a musical moron). I understand she is already in with Ike but come on Eric Clapton is in 3 times and he is just Slow Hand not the King or even the Prince. She may not be quite as big as a Whitney or Cher but their is no doubt she is more rock even in her solo career. To be honest i think the only female that deserves to be in ahead of Tina may and I do mean maybe Janis joplin. Of course that is both Tinas. Still on her own taking away the negatives of being more pop I still think she should be in. And oh yeah she is easily the best ass shaker the world has ever seen.
