Ike & Tina Turner were an American musical duo active during the 1960s and 1970s, consisting of the husband-and-wife team Ike Turner and Tina Turner. Rolling Stone ranked them #2 on their list of the "20 Greatest Duos of All Time" in 2015.
They performed live as the Ike & Tina Turner Revue, supported by Ike Turner's band the Kings of Rhythm and backing singers, the Ikettes. The Ike & Tina Turner Revue was regarded as "one of the most potent live acts on the R&B circuit". Their live performances were a musical spectacle in the style of James Brown and the Famous Flames.
The duo's early works, "A Fool In Love," "It's Gonna Work Out Fine," and "I Idolize You," became high points in the development of soul music. Their later works were noted for interpretive re-arrangements of rock songs such as "Come Together," "Honky Tonk Woman," and "Proud Mary," the latter of which won them a Grammy Award in 1972. Ike Turner and Tina Turner's professional and personal relationship ended in 1976, and their divorce was finalized in 1978.
Ike & Tina Turner were inducted to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1991.
