Queen of rock ‘n’ roll dies at 83

Tina Turner, music giant and soul pioneer turned rock star, has died aged 83.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame icon has died at her home in Switzerland after a long illness, according to a statement posted on her official social media accounts.

“It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Tina Turner…Today we say goodbye to a dear friend who leaves us her greatest work: her music,” reads a statement from his long-time friend and collaborator, Peter Lindbergh.

For many years, Turner lived a reclusive life while battling health issues, including a stroke in 2013, bowel cancer in 2016 and a kidney transplant in 2017.
