Ike Turner Laid To Rest  

Posted by BlognThings in

Ike Turner has been laid to rest in California with a suitably rock 'n' roll service in his honor. The musician's funeral on Friday was dubbed "part memorial service, part rock concert" for its crowd-rousing musical contributions and star-studded turn out.

Turner's eight-piece band, the Kings of Rhythm, brought the crowd of hundreds at the Gardena, California service to its feet with renditions of some of the star's greatest hits, including Nutbush City Limits and Proud Mary.

Turner's daughter, Mia Turner, said, "Daddy wouldn't want any of us crying. He would want us to throw a party."

Among those eulogizing the rocker - who died in his sleep at his California home earlier this month, aged 76 - were music producer Phil Spector and rock pioneer Little Richard, who described his friend as "one of the greatest musicians I have ever met in my life."
