Ike Turner Musical Service

GARDENA, Calif. (AP) -- Ike Turner's funeral was part memorial service, part rock concert. The nearly three-hour remembrance Friday at Greater Bethany Community Church City of Refuge in Gardena featured Turner's eight-piece band, the Kings of Rhythm, which performed rollicking renditions of some of the musician's greatest hits, including "Nutbush City Limits" and "Proud Mary." The songs brought the crowd of hundreds to its feet.

Ike Turner as we know was not well liked. He had many demons in is life. The history that surrounds him musically though is undeniable.
