Tina Turner teaches MJ a few lessons

While watching B2B DVD last night, and watching MJ dance moves at the begining of Flip The Switch, I recall watching an interview with Tina Turner about MJ. She was asked about her working relationship with him. She related that he was somewhat boring in his early days. He just stood at the microphone and sang with very few moves. She claimed that after watching him, she taught him some moves and encouranged him to just express himself with dance moves during the show. Any truth to this. Did Tina Turner inspire MJ to be that full of energy on stage ????

Search "Rolling Stones Tina Turner" on YouTube and realize who inspired Mick, at least in part, to be so sexual on stage....

He stole a lot of stuff from James Brown, too. But he stole it in a loving and respectful way, so it's ok.

Yes, she taught him a lot of moves - he shagged her under the stage at Madison Square Garden when she and Ike were supporting The Stones on the aptly named '69 tour.

She may have tought him nothing, but he sure did look at tina. Take a look at this clip and watch the two of them walking to the left of the stage. That, for sure, is a "Tina walk".

BTW she uses Mick's moves too.

A little perspective here...

All the hipsters admired Tina in the Sixties for her Phil Spector stuff, most notably "River Deep Mountain High." Ike and Tina were on the amazing bill of the Stones Royal Albert Hall show in 1966. Mick was paying attention to Tina as a dancer and mover relatively early on. He respected her.

At Albert Hall Mick was far from standing idly at the microphone. He interpreted the songs with his moves whenever it made sense, including a truly fabulous version of "Lady Jane," in a sense treating it like a short play.

Nureyev, the most exciting ballet dancer of those times was a major influence also.

Jagger is certainly one of those most creative and sensational performers on stage of ALL time. He invented himself and has worked VERY hard.

Anyone who saw him in the miserable conditions at Soldier Field knows what I'm talking about.

Really? I knew he had a thing with one of the Ikettes but not Tina. Where is that story from?

I read it in - I think - a Stones Mojo or Q special mag.

Was it MSG? I heard it was at the Royal Albert Hall when Ike & Tina were opening in '66.

I think Mick was shagging one of the Ikettes in '69, which he had to keep hidden from Ike.

Great Ike stories in Mac's "All The Rage", too.

I don't know if they had any official lessons but I'm sure he learned from observing her. When Tina Turner was honored about a year ago at the Kennedy Center, Oprah Winfrey gave a presentation that described the early years of Tina.

The presentation mentioned the Stones and how Jagger learned by observing Tina onstage. Of course this was probably only one of his "stage persona" influences just as he has many different musical infuences.

A video of Tina and the Stones from '81 would be amazing! You've got to love Tina
