Annotation Mark Bego's concise biography of the fiery R&B singer Tina Turner, BREAK EVERY RULE, chronicles her amazing determination to succeed in the face of adversity, in the shape of her abusive husband, Ike Turner, and a late-1970s career downturn after she left him. Bego follows the couple's early professional career, highlighting Tina's 1966 recording of Phil Spector's epochal single "River Deep, Mountain High," which marked her out as one of the great female soul singers, and the duo's version of John Fogerty's "Proud Mary," which gained them a Grammy in 1972. He also surveys their '60s musical output, providing a useful discography--a task made more complex by Ike's habit of signing to more than one record label at the same time. As Bego relates, Tina finally left her husband in 1976, possessing little more than the change in her pocket and the right to use her name professionally. Aided by early-'80s hit records with the UK band Heaven 17, and a film role in the Mad Max movie, BEYOND THUNDERDOME, she began the slow process of reassembling her career. Her subsequent hit records and perennial star status are a testament to her talent and tenacity.
Editors Note A biography tracing five decades of music-making and struggle by Tina Turner, a reigning voice in rock music.
