Tina Turner: The Soulful Queen of Rock'n'roll Struts Back Into the Spotlight
Mark Rowland, Musician, September 1984
PRIVATE DANCER is Tina Turner's new album; 'I Might Have Been Queen' the first song; and it's hard to decide which title, album's or single's, seems more ironic. I mean, has there ever been a dancer less private than Tina Turner? And what's with this "might have been" hokum? As sure as there exists a pantheon of rockers, Tina Turner is Queen. Or as she puts it, self-mockingly, "the first black woman of rock. And the only one."
