Ike and Tina Turner with Phil Spector at Gold …

Ike and Tina Turner with Phil Spector at Gold Star Studios in Los Angeles, March 1966

Phil Spector produced the Ike and Tina Turner song “River Deep, Mountain High.” However,

Phil offered Ike $20,000 upfront in exchange for total control over the production so Ike was not a part of the making of that song. The single was successful in Europe but didn’t do as well in America. This disappointment caused Phil to go into semi-retirement. Phil later inducted Ike and Tina into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1991.

In 2007, Phil gave a eulogy at Ike’s funeral. He said, “Ike made Tina the jewel she was.” Phil then criticized Tina’s autobiography I, Tina, he said: “I have an ambivalence towards Oprah Winfrey. She made Tina Turner’s book into a bestseller which demonized and vilified Ike. The book wouldn’t have sold 10 books. It was badly written. It was a piece of trash and because Oprah idolized Tina she didn’t feel it wrong to vilify a brother.” He also said the biopic What’s Love Got to Do With It was a “piece of trash movie.”

Phil is currently a serving a prison sentence for the second-degree murder of actress Lana Clarkson.
