Farewell to the "Queen of Rock and Roll". The legend, the icon, Tina Turner has died. She first gained fame in the 1960s with her husband Ike as part of the Ike and Tina Turner Revue. The chart success of the group hid the physical abuse Turner suffered from her husband, which she later revealed. Tina broke through to her greatest stardom after the release of her "Private Dancer" album in 1984. The album generated the top 10 hits "Better Be Good To Me" and "Private Dancer," as well as the number one smash "What's Love Got To Do With It." which was also the name of her 1993 bio-pic. According to her representative, Tina Turner died peacefully yesterday after a long illness. She was 83.
Paul Simon says he may not be able to perform live again because he has lost most of the hearing in his left ear.

He added that's not necessarily a bad thing, because sometimes he feels "like a Paul Simon cover band," and that it's time to get off the road.
