5. Again? I like Tina, not so sure about Ike, even though he made some amends.

8. I caught his act at the Blues Fest in Davenport a few years back.
He put on a great show and we were dancing to the Rocket 88 number. I can say I participated in a bit of history there.

7. A Footnote In Music History
Chiefly because he discovered Tina and conditionally gave her to the world. The man is not publicly redeemed because he is dead, but any "amends" he needed to make were private ones.

17. He may have been an asshole but he wasn't a music footnote
Rocket 88, one of the songs that started rock and roll.

An extremely talented person, but an asshole.
