To be fair, I think it's not really interesting to the common viewer (not a Stones fan) that they opened for the Stones in 1969 or her Gimme Shelter appearance. There's only so much you can do in 2 hours. They basically show Private Dancer as her first solo album when actually it was her 5th so yeah they overlook a lot but it's a timespan of 70 years cropped into 1 documentary.

Thanks for this. I’m very much looking forward to seeing the documentary one way or another. Tina is a pioneer and a legend who paved the way for so many but is still peerless. She so deserved the love she found with her second husband, who sounds devoted to her. She got so much love from the crowd in 2014 when she turned up at the Stones show in Zurich as a member of the audience. Of course, we had all been hoping against hope when we heard she was backstage pre-show that she’d be jumping up on stage to duet with Mick, but alas it was not to be. I saw her several times over the decades. The last time was in 2009 during her 50th anniversary tour - with Lisa Fischer as one of her backing singers!

How cool Beast!

Fair point. Worth adding the reviewer, a fiction writer, entertainment blogger, and now movie producer, is a writer who rarely mentions the Stones except in context.
From my experience with his writings, he lands in the common reviewer column.

One of the articles linked early on in this topic explains a little about how the planned Mick interview fell through:

"Lindsay: We had an archive interview with him as placeholder. Then we did a little less of that first tour [1966 with the Rolling Stones]. We were set up to interview him when he was going to play at the Rose Bowl in 2019, but it was cancelled when he had heart surgery. And then, I dunno…some producers kept saying, “Hey, what about Mick Jagger? How about Rod Stewart? Don’t you want to interview them?” But it just didn't feel right."

I'm reading her book now, a lot of Mick & the Stones mentions, some are quite touching.. a lot of sadness ofcourse

"My right lung had collapsed. I was half dead. And I had been traveling with all this. One day, when I was still really sick, I woke up in my hospital bed, and my room was full of flowers. But one arrangement in particular stood out and the card on it said, "From Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones." That was the happiest moment for me. I began to think about who I was, and to feel like who I was. And I began to think about the fact that people really cared, you know? No flowers from Ike, of course. Are you kidding?"

...speaking of Tina, I want to share this rather thought provoking and informative piece I found from PBS News last week re:

How racism pushed Tina Turner and other Black women artists out of America.

I'm so happy for Tina being part of Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame's Inductees for 2021. I had read a news article just a few days ago that hinted that she may be on the inductees list.

Speaking of Tina, here's a clip on U Tube that I had not seen since it originally aired in the 1970's of Tina and Ann Margaret. Two gorgeous gals working it on Nutbush City Limits, Honky Tonk Woman, Proud Mary from one of Ann Margaret's tv specials:

Congratulations to Tina on all she has achieved in her life. smileys with beer

I remember so well the Stones Zurich show as my Lucky Dip tickets were in the seating area not far from the box where Tina and her friends were.
Could see her clearly really enjoying the show. smiling smiley

Loved her and Mick's performance on Live Aid. If I recall correctly, she dropped everything and came to Philadelphia. (She may have been touring or recording an album, not quite sure.) When the journalist asked her why she came for Live Aid?
"Mick asked me to.." was her response. Her relationship with Bryan Adams made news, here in Canada.

New Vanity Fair article:

Tina Turner’s Swiss Chateau Retirement Is Going Dreamily, Thanks for Asking

As the Tony-winning Broadway musical about her life returns to the stage, the legendary performer reflects on her career in a new interview: “Recently Cher came to visit. We gossiped and laughed a lot.”
BY YOHANA DESTA
OCTOBER 8, 2021

There is a plaque in Tina Turner’s home that reads, “Please no package deliveries before 12 o’clock.”

“You can deduce from that: I am not an early riser,” Turner says via email when asked to describe a typical day in retirement for her. “I start every day calmly. My favorite thing is to take care of my flowers in the garden.”

It’s a blissful life, one that Turner worked incredibly hard to earn. The legendary entertainer stepped back from the public eye nearly 20 years ago, retiring to Chateau Algonquin, her sprawling home in Switzerland, with husband Erwin Bach. But public fascination with Turner hasn’t gone away. This month, Tina, the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical based on her life, returns to the stage, with best actress winner Adrienne Warren reprising her role as Turner for the rest of October. Then the role will be taken over by Nkeki Obi-Melekwe, who played Turner in the musical’s West End production.

That’s not all Turner has going on, though. Later this month, she’ll be inducted to the Rock ’n’ Roll Hall of Fame for a second time—this time as a solo performer, sans Ike. She’ll also see BMG acquire her music catalog for a reported $50 million. In an email interview with Vanity Fair, Turner reflected on these recent achievements and pulled back the curtain on what life is like for her these days, taking care of her garden and entertaining guests like Cher at the chateau.

I was just thrilled for Adrienne to receive the recognition she so richly deserved. She has given everything to this role. I know what it takes, and I am so proud of her. She is very special to me and always will be. I felt the same joy when I spoke with Katori [Hall, who wrote the book for Tina] the day she won her Pulitzer. I whooped with excitement! It means so much to me to see this generation of incredible women take flight.

Nkeki Obi-Melekwe will take over for Adrienne next month. Do you have any advice for her? And were you able to meet her, either virtually or in-person, at all in this process?

My producer brought Nkeki to visit me at home when they first discovered her two years ago. She was only 23 then and about to begin playing the role of Tina in the West End. Nkeki is a powerhouse. To take the baton in this most challenging leading role in what is her Broadway debut so early in her career says it all. I love that we even share the same birthmark!

You’ll be inducted to the Rock ’n’ Roll Hall of Fame for a second time this month, but this time as a solo performer. What does that recognition mean to you?

I was of course very excited to be inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame, it’s a great honor for me. At the same time, I feel a certain humility to be in a row with the greatest musicians of this world.

I’m curious about your retirement. You live in Switzerland, in a beautiful chateau that was shown briefly in the documentary Tina. What is your favorite room or space in your home and why?

Oh, I don’t have a favorite room at all. However, in the course of one’s life, one accumulates many objects for which one needs space. I have, for example, some artifacts of Egyptian art. I like to be surrounded by these and other collectibles. It is not at all about whether they are expensive or valuable. The important thing is that I have a personal relationship with each one. I also love the view of Lake Zurich from our garden—I enjoy the peace and quiet.

In a 2019 New York Times interview, you said this of your retirement: “I don’t sing. I don’t dance. I don’t dress up.” Is that still true?

Hahaha. Yes, that’s true. Well. Sometimes I subconsciously hum along to a song that’s on the radio. I also really liked Kygo’s cover version of “What’s Love Got to Do With It.”

Is there anything you miss about performing?

No, it was a great time, but it’s in the past.

What is the last piece of music you listened to that moved you?

I am a Buddhist. I like the calming effect of Buddhist sounds. They make me realize every time anew that we are all one.

Are there any contemporary artists in the music world that excite you? If so, whom and why?

Oh my God! Of course! I could list dozens, but I would surely forget to mention some. That’s why I say: every art that touches people is unique.

Is Buddhism still a central practice in your life? If so, how has your relationship to it evolved over the years?

Last year I published the book Happiness Becomes You in which I write about my relationship with Buddhism. And that book made me realize once again how much I owe to my faith. I still chant every day. Chanting helps me to clear obstacles and live a calm life.

What is your favorite way to treat yourself these days?

I love to sit in my garden and listen to nature, take loving care of my plants. I also enjoy chatting with friends. Recently Cher came to visit. We gossiped and laughed a lot. We had a great time!

Your birthday is coming up next month. How do you plan to celebrate?

Haha, good question! I’d have to ask Erwin if he has anything planned. We’ll celebrate in a small circle, but certainly nothing big.

On that note, in retrospect, do you have a favorite past birthday? What was your favorite celebration? And what was the best gift given to you?

The most beautiful celebration was definitely my wedding with Erwin in 2013. It was beautiful to have the loved ones around. The greatest gift I have ever received? Erwin.

You’ve given countless interviews, written autobiographies, been the subject of movies, TV shows, documentaries, and, of course, a Broadway musical. Aside from your music, what has been your favorite way to share your story with your fans all over the world?

At the risk of disappointing you, nothing can top that energy of a concert. I really enjoyed every minute of it! I loved it!

I'm not a big Tina Turner Fan, but i have the "Foreign Affair" Deluxe Box, and this one looks another good release in a sufficient Size for a much fairer price as compared to the for me unnecessarily large "Stones" CD Deluxe Boxes !

Tina is such a huge part of the Stones history.she just shows up here and there and you can see how great she is and how much the band love her.
From her great performances in Gimme Shelter to Live Aid.
The way Mick and Keith talk to her when she visits backstage in Cckscker Blues you can see the respect.
BTW, few people caught it but the famous “ wardrobe malfunction “ when Justin Timberlake pulled Janet Jackson’s top off was a direct steal from Mick and Tina at Live Aid.
I was watching with a room full of people and when Mick pulled that leather dress off it was “ whooooaaa!!”
