70's Music Artist and Songwriter passes away 

Acclaimed singer Tina Turner has died at age 83, a spokesperson for the performer confirmed on Wednesday.

"Tina Turner, the 'Queen of Rock'n Soul' has died peacefully today at the age of 83 after a long illness in her home in Kusnacht near Zurich, Switzerland," the spokesperson's statement read. "With her, the world loses a music legend and a role model."

Turner had suffered from poor health in recent years. She had an intestinal cancer diagnosis in 2016 and underwent a kidney transplant in 2017. Over her long career, she won eight Grammy Awards and had stars on both the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the St. Louis Walk of Fame.


Turner was born and raised in Tennessee and had been living in Switzerland with her husband, German music executive Erwin Bach, since 1994.

One Hit Wonders 

We’ve had some other novelty one-hit wonders: Rick Dees’ “Disco Duck”, related to the disco craze of the 1970s, C. W. McCall’s “Convoy”, and ”Sugar, Sugar” by The Archies.

And now to my favourite — Norman Greenbaum’s “Spirit In The Sky”. Greenbaum had previously been a member of psychedelic jug band Dr. West’s Medicine Show and Junk Band. With that great guitar riff, hand-clapping, and spiritual lyrics, “Spirit” has been used in countless films (Apollo 13, Wayne’s World 2), many advertisements, and television shows. It’s also been covered by many acts including UK group Doctor and The Medics, who also took the song to No.1 with a dreadful version in 1986.
