RIP: Ike Turner

Ike Turner – 5. November 1931 – 12. Dezember 2007:

“I got a job driving the elevator in the Alcazar and the radio station was on the second floor. It was very exciting to me, a radio station. I’d run up to the second floor and look through the window at the guy spinning records. He saw me and tole me to come in and showed me how to ‘hold a record.’ I’d sit there and hold it until the one playing stopped, then I’d turn a knob and the one I was holding would play. Next thing I know, he was going across the street for coffee and leaving me in there alone. I was only eight. That was the beginning of my thing with music.”
