On Wednesday, it was shockingly revealed that Tina Turner has passed away at the age of 83. She had struggled with severe health problems for the majority of the previous decade, including intestinal cancer, but in 2017, she underwent a kidney transplant from her husband, Erwin Bach, and appeared to be recovering, at least to the general public.
At recent events, such as her 2021 induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, she appeared healthy and content.
Tina Turner, known as the “Queen of Rock & Roll,” passed away peacefully today at the age of 83 in her home in Küsnacht, Switzerland, close to Zurich, according to a statement from her family. “With her, the world loses a legend of music and a role model.”
Unquestionably, one of the greatest live musicians in music history was Turner. When she opened for the Rolling Stones on their illustrious 1969 North American tour, she almost managed to surpass them.
She also sold out stadiums throughout the 1980s and 1990s. She played 121 gigs in 2000, the year she declared her retirement, but she returned in 2008 for one final tour to mark her 50th wedding anniversary.
