What's Love Got to Do with Tina Turner?
Groom-to-be Bach once declared, regarding his relationship with the Queen of Rock, "We don't need a marriage to be together. Some people need that security thing, but I think if you're internally happy with your partner, you don't need symbols." They may now need cymbals, however, as I understand it's to be a Buddhist celebration at their home on the banks of Lake Zurich, on Sunday. I wonder if this means Tina's pregnant! Or if they just thought they'd rake in a lot of great gifts! (You can never have too many toasters, coffee pots or -- the wedding being in Switzerland -- fondue sets, in my humble opinion.)
Erwin Bach is a German record exec. He and Ms Turner met in London at a record label party. Isn't that all rock'n'roll romantic? All art and industry and love? All international glam? It so beats meeting on Craig's List.
Tina is 73 and Bach 57. It's a bitch when shacking up with a 57-year-old is considered robbing the cradle, I imagine. But you can't always be proud, Marys, take it from me. Good for Tina, I say!
I wonder if the bride will sing "Let's Stay Together" at her wedding ceremony, or if it will be just a lot of Buddhist chanting passed off as entertainment along with the salmon, Swiss cheese and Wasa crackers? In any case, I wish Tina simply The Best! She's earned and deserves her happiness.
So, it's Bach to the future for Tina Turner (nee Anna Mae Bullock). Tina, baby, I Think It's Gonna Work Out Fine!
