Ike Turner's daughter says her father wouldn't want people crying at his funeral, instead he would want a party.
A three-hour remembrance of the rock 'n' roll icon was just
that. Turner's eight-piece band, the Kings of Rhythm, blared out
renditions of some of the musician's greatest hits, including
"Nutbush City Limits" and "Proud Mary," bringing hundreds in
the crowd to their feet.
Among those at the service were music producer Phil Spector and
Richard says he took the introduction from Turner's breakthrough
hit, "Rocket 88," and produced "Good Golly, Miss Molly."
Spector said Turner was "demonized and vilified" by his
ex-wife, Tina Turner. He called the 1993 film "What's Love Got To
Do With It," based on her autobiography, a "piece of trash."
Turner died December 13th. He was 76.
