“Rest in peace to one of my favorite artists of all time, the legendary queen of rock n’ roll Tina Turner,” he wrote. “I’ve seen her many many times and hands down, she gave one of the best live shows I’ve ever seen. She always gave you your moneys worth.”
Piers Morgan called Tina “Simply, the best,” in reference to her 1991 album of the same name, while Holly Robinson Peete said, “A life to celebrate… Rest In Peace Queen Tina Turner”
Canadian singer Bryan Adams penned a touching tribute to Tina—his collaborator on the 1985 single “It’s Only Love” and the opening act for his 1985 Reckless tour—and sent his condolences to her family, including husband Erwin Bach and sons Ike Turner Jr., 65, and Michael Turner, 41.
“The world just lost one hell of a powerhouse woman,” Bryan wrote. “I’ll be forever grateful for the time we spent together on tour, in the studio and as friends. Thank you for being the inspiration to millions of people around the world for speaking your truth and giving us the gift of your incredible voice. It’s Only Love…and that’s all.”
