36 Cents & A Mobil Card

Tina Turner - Lorenzo Hotel - Dallas .png

The Ramada Hotel in Dallas, TX where Tina stayed after leaving Ike Turner thirty one years ago back in July 1976 closed down a few years ago. After being totally rebuild, it reopened recently as a hip Art centric boutique Hotel under the name:  ‘Lorenzo’. Located on the vibrant Cedars area of downtown Dallas, ‘over 600 original works of art ignite your imagination and suspend your disbelief. Andy Warhol meets Alice in Wonderland amid breathtaking Dallas skyline views. Draw on the wisdom and creativity of historical luminaries including Copernicus, Shakespeare, Kandinsky, Seneca, Einstein and many others.’

But there is another legendary name to add to that list and a new ‘photo spot‘ for us fans! The new owners didn’t forget our Queen and the former hotel history: In order to celebrate Tina’s legacy,  visitors will have the pleasure to see the cover of Tina’s comeback album Private Dancer displayed in the hotel lobby! A great gesture and a nice way to remember that you should always focus on your dreams and make it happen one way or another!

A last reminder if you plan to sleep there: you might need more than thirty six cents and a Mobil card to get the presidential suite! Unless your name is Tina Turner!

TINA in studio

tina-turner-recording-beyond-iv-spiritual-message-zurich-december-2016
It’s a picture we would like to see more often: TINA in a recording studio! Taken last December in Zurich, Tina looks radiant and appears very concentrated on her message! But don’t get your hopes too high, Miss Tina isn’t recording a new rock album, she is just putting her voice again on a few tracks for the upcoming Beyond album due to be released later this year. Apart from that, it’s been very quiet lately, TINA, The Musical is still in development and the first newsletter should arrive soon! Until then here’s a couple of new photos posted by the musical team on social networks.

Paris Loves TINA

tina-turner-paris-2017

It seems like everywhere in the world there’s hidden gems celebrating TINA. From the never dying posters surviving under a bridge in Germany to window painting of the Queen in a deserted St Louis street, here is a new found one in Paris. Located near the famous Moulin Rouge cabaret, this beautiful piece of street art has been created by artist Ilèa and now appears on the walls of the Rue Planquette. Don’t know if it will be permanent but if you ever are in Paris soon, guess it’s a nice spot to get your picture taken with TINA! Thanks to Gustavo for the tip!

Tina’s Wish – 1960’s Photoshoot

Tina Turner - black & white photo shoot - 1960's - 02

Looking at those shots from the early sixties when Little Ann’ was on the verge of what would become one of the most spectacular career in music industry, I am pretty sure she had had no idea of what the future would look like and how bumpy the road would be. Was it the age of innocence? I wish I could say yes but as can be seen on several pictures from that time and from this photo shoot, Tina’s look shows that despite her young age, she has already been confronted to the harshness of life. But it also shows determination and that whatever it would take, if she was destined to famous, nobody would stop her.

The lotus is a flower that grows in the mud. The thicker and deeper the mud, the more beautiful the lotus blooms…
Well then, Anna Mae Bullock blossomed more beautifully than anyone else.

More photos from the  photoshoot inside the post! Enjoy!

A one in a million chance…

Tina Turner in Zurich (2016).png

A very nice and candide shot of Tina Turner (76) emerged today on Instagram! Taken earlier today in the streets of Zurich, it seems that the Rock legend graciously agreed to pose in front of a young admirer! Not very Swiss protocole but let’s admit it, it must have taken some guts and the guy got lucky!

Anyway, always nice to see Miss Turner unexpectedly, looking happy & healthy!
Have a look at Davide Caenaro’s Instagram Website!

Tina turns the lights on

Tina Turner  Kusnacht November 2015 - 2.jpg

“Where is this button?”, asks the guest of honor laughing.                     (c) Bild: Sabine Rock

Remember last year when we wrote that Tina was offering Christmas decoration for her city Kusnacht, in Zurich’s neighborhood? Until then the Seestrass, were Tina lives, didn’t have any! But today,the Queen of Rock attended a little celebration with Kusnacht mayor Markus Ernst and turned on the decorations lights for this year which was followed by a “Wow” from that “unmistakable throaty voice”.  The Legend, nearly 76 looked radiant in black and we’re happy to see her looking so fine!

Tina was accompanied by her husband Erwin Bach who said goodbye on behalf of both with the words:

 “We wish peace in the world at Christmas”

We also wish everybody a peaceful Christmas next month, a joyful Thanksgiving and of course a very Happy Birthday to Tina!
