IKE & TINA, 1974

IKE & TINA,  1974
The Ike and Tina Turner Revue, as they were known way back in the last century, damn, I'm old! This legendary couple were photographed in concert, July 1974 at Victoria, BC Canada. By 1978 Their relationship started going downhill as Ike had become addicted to cocaine. His habit eventually led to their divorce that was finalized in March 1978. After many struggles Tina went on to her own career which became more successful than when the two were together. For more info:

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!!!!! I'm sitting here in disbelief...you TOOK THIS PICTURE?!!! WOW WOW WOW!!! You really are all that and a bag of chips my friend, and this is one heck of an outstanding image. You got Tina's personality, her energy, her spirit, and he's facing away from her, just standing there...it's perfect...she's taking off and gonna leave him in the dust. FANTASTIC. I told my husband about you, he loved this picture and he's really wowed by your dazzling career. WAY TO GO. WAY TO GO!!! Keep up these pictures and take me on a trip through your career through the lens of your camera, I can't wait to see!!! (Honestly, any picture you put up is going to make me very happy--you really hit the spot for me as a photographer!!)

Thank you all for your comments. Joan, I never saw the Beatles, saw the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Rod Stewart, Dire Straits, lots of blues guys and many others. Robert, as you know she's high energy. John p, I wish, Victoria BC is too small a town for Led Zeppelin to play in. Janet, I wish I had all the negatives from my career, unfortunately the newspaper owns most of them and I have no access to them.
