Tina Turns 74

Happy Birthday, Tina Turner (aka Anna Mae Bullock). Anyone who has watched What's Love Got to Do with It knows her story, so I won't repeat it here. I mean, this is Dj Buddy Beave, not A&E Biography!

I will say Tina is and always was on fire; electric; a singular sensation. She knew how to work a mike at Woodstock. She influenced generations of divas to come. She moved like nobody else. And her legs have always been first-class.

After she divorced Ike (Turner, not Eisenhower, though I think she'd make a hot First Lady), she was pretty much down on her (stiletto) heels. Her good friend, Ann Margret, sheltered her until she got back on her feet again and assisted her in getting some Vegas gigs.

She's got eight Grammys and she has sold more concert tickets than any solo performer ever. She's certainly no stranger to the dance-music scene, having rebuilt her career in the 1980s with a dance cover of Al Green's "Let's Stay Together." She also ventured into '70s disco territory with "Love Explosion" and "Music Keeps Me Dancin'." Of course, it was in the '80s that she got her groove back with the Private Dancer album.

Tina Turner is now a citizen of Switzerland. and a newlywed.  She is retired and so what if she's put on a little weight! She deserves to relax and enjoy.

Tina Turner is the Acid Queen, people! She is the epitome of fierce. She is the one and only Tina.

Dj Buddy Beaverhausen wishes her the best tonight and hopes she has many more birthdays to come. A true legend. Ms Tina Turner.
