  • Ike Turner craved fame, and that could have possibly been his downfall.

    Ike Turner was a troubled man. He wanted fame and he saw his ticket through Miss Anna Mae Bullock and that was not nessicarly bad, because she saw her ticket to fame through him. The problem came when they had begun to rise together in fame. He was controlling her like a mad man. He went as far as changing her stage name without her permission to Tina Turner. He thought if they acted like they were married it would create more press and it did, and at one point they really did get married. Ike was addicted to cocaine, and that made him mean, he beat his wife constantly. As there fame rose, so did the beatings and that's when the woman known as Tina fought back. Tina had come to the realization after a long time of being beatten that she didn't need Ike to acheive her fame, and she was right. She didn't need him. After a long time she re-rose to fame, and had the best comeback of all time. She even recieved a star on the walk of fame, without Ike, she had every reason to be proud. Then a little while later Ike got what he wanted, fame, he with Tina recieved a star also, but the most ironic part of that last statement is that Ike could not enjoy his award, no, he was in jail at the time it was recieved, for a Cocaine offence. More recently Ike died alone, of a Cocaine overdose. This is sad, but I am not so sure many people miss him all that much.
