• AC/DS new tour up close
• How Meat Loaf needs an “oxygen shower” after every show
• The lives of Marc Almond and the other one from Soft Cell
• How Adam Ant started his band
• Introducing German new wave group Einstürzende Neubauten
• The big mouth of young football star Lothar Matthäus

Bravo 1 Jan 1975 (Tina Turner)


Tina Turner features on the cover of Bravo of 1 January 1975. That week 43 years ago, Germany’s youth read about:

• Ike & Tina Turner’s sold-out 13-city US tour (see article below)
• How Freddie is king in Queen
• Neil Diamond’s appearance on German TV while running a fever
• Elton John’s “bird of paradise” hope
• German music TV show presenter’s Ilja Richter’s “serious” student girlfriend
• Two girls speak about being “seduced against their will” (what we now call date-rape)

Here’s the Ike & Tina Turner article. I predict a long career together yet for the two.
