I BEEF or CHICKEN FAJITAS *6 Karen Perry Book tells Tina Turner's story of rise to fame "I, Tina," the life story of Tina Turner, traces the rise to fame of Anna Mae Bullock of Nut Bush, Tenn. It is also the story of a woman's struggle for control of her own life. The book is written by Tina Turner with Kurt Loder and contains reminiscences by people who knew Tina throughout her Me. Anna Mae was born to Zelma and Richard Bullock during the foundering years of their marriage. They didn't want her and she knew it. She says she grew up without love, independent and self-sufficient. She found some consolation for her parents' lack of interest in the arms of her grandmother, in support from her older sister, Alline, and her friendship with cousins. Music was always a part of her life from the beginning, singing in church to the early days with Ike and the Kings of Rhythm in East St. Louis. Life with the pistol-toting Ike was never comfortable for Tina. In fact, it reads more like a three-ring circus (with women and hangers-on cluttering up Ike's place) than anything normal. The relationship between them began when he heard her sing near the' stage where his band was playing. They became like brother and sister before living together as man and wife. From the very beginning, Ike was violent. He beat all his women; Tina, the secretaries, even the housekeeper, and they TINA TURNER put up with it. Tina says she often performed with black eyes, cuts and bruises. Her nose was usually swollen from his beatings. Ike's favorite weapon was a coat hanger. He first hit Tina with a wooden shoe tree. He respected no one and brooked no interference. He often acted for them without consulting their wishes as in Tina's case, when he changed her name without asking. Tina left Ike many times before finally severing the tie between them in Dallas in July of 1976. She left with only 36 cents and a Mobil credit card in her pocket. But she left with the determination not to go back into a relationship which was becom- ing more dangerous and painful-, as the years passed. 1 ••*. Ike tried to stop Tina's mevej- for independence by blocking ~ her move to establish her own career. Because she left the , band, she was held responsible '. for paying the backers of the; tour she abandoned. ;•_•• Ike sent all the children to live with her even though she had no' work. He hired people to shoot at '"• her and fought the divorce with! '. any means at his disposal. J-. Tina persisted and became;. successful in spite of him. Sh£ ; made guest appearances on TV -. and finally began recording and making personal appearances with a band. '.('. In 1984; she performed aloneT'! without the support of a backupx group. She was also chosen: to make a Mad Max movie with.*. Mel Gibson. She performed' at-* the Live Aid concert with Mick : • Jagger and she became a Gram-. my winner including record Of ". the year for "What's Love Got To Do With It." Tina became a bigger star without Ike than she ever dreamed of being with him. She credits many people with helping her gain control of her life. She found the inner strength . to leave Ike through chanting, which she claims put her in touch with the universe. She also credits readings with giving her support to achieve her goals. It's obvious throughout the . book that the strongest influence '. on Tina Turner's life is the woman herself. Once she found the initial courage to pursue her dreams, she was unstoppable.
