    I know that he was a major contributer to Rock n Roll and music in general.

    But the alledged wife beating he did overshadows a lot of his accomplishments for me.

    My heart just breaks for Tina Tuner with that news. I have a lot of respect for her for simply releasing a statement that said she'd heard the news and that was all that would be said.

    I would guess that the news would be met with a whole host of emotions for her. It can't be easy, as I would guess there'd still be some sadness, and anything that is not sadness would be met with feelings of guilt. It must be complex for her to say the very least.

    I will give him credit for discovering and encouraging Tina to make her a star. But if you look at what she has done since getting away from him, I don't think there's any doubt she played a mighty big hand in making herself. Just look at a single live performance from her ... she had the talent within her -- Ike just pushed it along.

    He might have discovered her, but she made herself and turned out to be a MUCH bigger star on her own.

    I know. Wife beaters don't rate much better than a "good riddance" from me, as cold as that sounds.
