The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame is a museum in Cleveland, celebrating the most important musicians and producers. Artists become eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their first record. In 1989, Tina honored Phil Spector with a speech at the ceremony of his induction. Two years later in 1991, Phil Spector inducted Ike & Tina Turner on their behalf, because Ike was in prison and Tina didn’t want to participate. The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame home video from 2011 includes the most memorable moments of the ceremony with Tina performing River Deep, Mountain High and several songs together with Mick Jagger and other artists.
On October 30, 2021, Tina was inducted as a solo artist from Angela Basset at a ceremony in Cleveland. Tina sent a video message for her acceptance speech. She is the third artist to be a double inductee, after she was first inducted with Ike Turner in 1991.
A charismatic bandleader and an unbridled whirlwind of sexual energy formed one of the most formidable live acts in history.
Ike and Tina Turner were such a presence onstage that even their own albums don’t do them justice. The explosive duo made such enduring hits as „River Deep, Mountain High,“ „Proud Mary“ and „Nutbush City Limits.“
