This vintage autobiography, published in 1986 by William Morrow and Company, Inc., New York (Book Club Edition), is the life story of singer, TINA TURNER, who became popular back in the swinging 1960's. Her real name is Anna Mae Bullock but was changed by her infamous future husband, Ike Turner, when he hired her as a singer for his band, Kings of Rhythm.
Book has wonderful color photos of Tina on the front and back of dustcover which has kept this gray, hard cover book in near mint condition (see photos).
Measures 8-1/2 inches long by 5-3/4 inches wide and has many black and white photos of Tina, her family, and the groups she was with on her rise to fame as a duo with Ike, as well as the renowned solo artist we know and love today.
Kurt Loder, who helped Tina recount her life story, was a senior editor at Rolling Stone magazine when this book was published. Quoted from the dust cover inside back flap, "Tina's is one of the most sensational life stories in show business, encompassing the lowest lows and the highest highs. From modest beginnings to becoming the rage of three generations of fans to bursting through in 1985 to sweep the Grammy Awards with her fabulous comeback album "Private Dancer", Tina Turner is a true survivor, and this, her own book, Tina (along with her friends and family) tells it the way it is."
Wonderful story of her challenges and strengths and an interesting read for those who love her music. Nice vintage edition for your book collection too!
