Tina looked more than happy to take a look at all the luxury digs at the storefront as she took a look at a few of the fragrances out on the counter and even tried on a pair of spiffy shades with mirrored lenses.
No doubt the couple received great customer service as they chatted up with the suited and booted workers at the boutique.
The Simply The Best hitmaker went casual chic for the occasion as she donned a black jacket over a leather top, blue trousers and patterned flat shoes.

“I bet you looked handsome on your wedding day
So strong, so fine, so tall
Though i was standing in the church that day
And i couldn’t see a thing at all”
By Ben – Being a legendary duo, Ike and Tina Turner are part of American popular culture and it is not rare to hear or see references of the notorious duo in movies, series, cartoons… A great opportunity to give a glimpse of the couple’s work to new audience and sometimes the chance to see a not-so-famous Ike & Tina Turner song getting a second life.
Last year, US tv show “True Detective” in an episode entitled “Haunted House” (S1 E06) paid tribute to Ike and Tina using in its soundtrack a rare gem from the couple! In the episode credits and on IMDB the song is listed as “uncredited”. No lyrics nor informations on Google as well…
Until, i found a trace on the internet of a 1963 song written by Johnny Cole and performed by Miles Stones being the original recording of the song. The “Tina version” is just a womanized version of the song. But not just that actually! Out of the massive work produced by Ike Turner and the countless covers, some of them are really superior to the majority.
“Too Many Tears” could remind us of wedding songs such as “All I Could Do Was Cry” or “Please, Please, Please” but it has something more to it. The way Tina delivers the first line hooks you up immediately. The song is very graphic so to speak and would perfectly fit a Tarantino movie or, as it happened, a tv series.
Anyway, i hope you’ll enjoy the song as much as i do! Oh and by the way, in my research, i came across a remix version of the song from the Soul Masters CD that i’ve included in the post!

2014 – If there was one year fans were expected to see something new coming from Tina it was supposed to be this year… First the 30th anniversary of Tina’s comeback album ‘Private Dancer’, 2014 also marked the 15th anniversary of Tina’s last studio album “Twenty Four Seven” and of course it was the year she turned 75 years old…
Great news! The second album of the (so far) Beyond trilogy, “Children Beyond” just turned Gold! Congratulations to Regula, Dechen and of course Miss Tina!
From the album, the peace mantra ‘Sarvesham Svastir Bhavatu’ now 2.6 millions views (and growing) on YT! Clip by Ben.
In 1986, Tina Turner in collaboration with Kurt Loder published the interview-style top selling biography, ‘I, Tina’. Back then, the world discovered the multiple struggles that young Anna Mae faced during her early life as well as during her turbulent relationship with cocaine-addicted guitar-genius Ike Turner (1931-2007).
While the journalists and the general audience were amazed by the resilience and strength of the forty-seven-year-old singer, few understood that behind Tina’s success, there was a very disciplined mental training. Tina was introduced to a new way of thinking according to the rules of the Lotus Sutra: one of several forms of Buddhist-practice inspired by the life of monk Nichiren (13th century A.D.) This is the path that born Baptist Tina Turner followed since the mid-seventies, faithfully mixing it with the Lord prayers. While promoting her biography and years later Disney’s biopicture ‘What’s Love Got To Do With it?’, the question had to be asked: Would Tina be willing to write a book about her journey in Buddhism, would she tell how it could also help us overcome our daily problems and how to get to the point where you feel physically and mentally balanced?
The fans waited patiently but besides a few interviews about her faith, Tina remained silent.
By Ben – Zurich, Switzerland. Yesterday the launch of the new Beyond album took place at Regula Curti’s Seeschau Center. After a mini tour of Germany to promote the album, the Beyond team reunited once again to present the CD to the Swiss media. We were again very fortunate to have been invited there. Tina Turner didn’t show up at the press conference but was present at the party that followed looking radiant and fantastic. The Tina Turner Blog was able to speak to Regula about Tina’s involvement in the album. Continue reading for more photos and videos from the press conference.
UPDATE: New video with a wonderful Tina Turner in supah form!
