I never had a child but I’ve always heard that a parent should never bury his own child.
Tina Turner did it once already… In 2018 when her beloved son Craig passed away suddenly. And now, she is once again facing one of life’s greatest tragedies as it is with great sadness that we heard this morning of the passing of her son Ronnie Turner at the age of 62.
Ronnie had been battling with illnesses for a long time and although Tina Turner raised four sons, he was the only child born out of her relationship with Ike Turner.
A musician and a bass player in his own right, he would be part of Tina’s band for some time in the late ’70s and would play a part in the success of Ike’s Grammy-winning comeback album ‘Risin’ With The Blues’ in 2006.
Tina Turner’s life would have truly been a Shakespearian tragedy from the beginning until the end. Her strength and resilience are once again put to the test but we all know our idol, she is the strongest of us all and she will find her own way to cope with this new loss and find peace.
I’d like to send my most sincere condolences to Tina and her husband, her niece Jackie and the rest of the Turner/Bullock family. May Ronnie rest in peace.
