At one, someone brought up Tina Turner, who at the time was probably the biggest pop star in the world. She had revealed that her estranged husband Ike Turner used to beat her and, frankly, milked that a bit when she was caught up on a tide of universal sympathy. I said, “Everyone’s talking about Tina, let’s find Ike. No one knew if Ike was even alive or dead. Ed Kiersh, a brilliant investigative journalist who did several wonderful pieces for SPIN , found him on the uglier streets of Los Angeles, homeless, totally broke, and recently out of prison. Turner admitted beating his wife, but this story helped define him as more than that man. [This story was originally published in the August 1985 issue of SPIN. The word on the street was that Ike was dead. No one knew for sure, but word was that Ike Turner had met a Hollywood-bad-guy death.

A lover of classic rock, Stabler's life could be summed up with equal propriety by The Eagles' "Life in the Fast Lane" and Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Simple Man. " Such was the paradox represented by the man, as he was a man of many parts. Even in his passing, nothing about his death could be so simple or so final. With rumors swirling, it was reported he had finally reached that cherished "nowhere" he'd been fastly chasing for all his 69 years of life. In the end, despite the social media maelstrom, it was reported with finality that the man died as he lived, leaving this coil in a flash, surrounded by the people and things he loved, the soft refrain of "Sweet Home Alabama" ushering him on to the.
(Warning - major SPOILERS for multiple Marvel comic books lie below, including a few fairly recent ones. Now, if there's one truth that springs eternal in the Marvel universe, it's that when it comes down to it, the world's greatest superheroes will do the right thing. In the face of tough decisions, the likes of Captain America, Iron Man and the X-Men will always do what's right, rather than what's easy. Sometimes, Marvel Superheroes Can Be Just as Bad as the Villains They Fight Now, in some cases, that makes a whole lot of sense. What I'm talking about are those instances when beloved superheroes haven't just killed someone as part of a mission - ethically murky, but pretty standard nowadays - but have done something so terrible that it's actually kind of surprising that...
