When Tina Turner used her early 90s autobiography I, Tina to accuse her husband Ike of years of serial physical abuse, Ike became the great untouchable of rock music. At the time Tina leveled charges he was in a downward spiral of drink and drug addiction; Ike Turner was in no position to defend himself. He is now healthy and recovered, and Takin' Back My Name marks his rehabilitation back into the public sphere. It's a no-holds-barred autobiography of a bizarre life, encompassing the lynching of his father by a Mississippi hate mob, Ike's pre-teen sexual abuse by a middle-aged neighbor, then marriage to and years of musical stardom with Tina, which were brought to an end by his excess and violence. Ike Turner doesn't deny the damaging claims made by his superstar ex-wife -- he just wants to start again.
