I told the fans in the Periscope Blues room that I was going to get to the bottom of the Ike and Tina story. I thought it has always been a interesting story about their careers. I had a friend who was a guitar player for Ike , he always spoke highly about Ike's skill as a business man and band leader. Looking at their journey im proud to see their 2 grammy awards and 5 nominations . Its unfortunate to have that be overshadowed by domestic abuse and coke abuse . Just look at the power they brought to the stage.
Ike was a talent scout early in his career and he sure got him a star when he discovered My Tina. Check them out on this Nutbush .
