Ike Turner Net Worth: Ike Turner was an American musician, song writer and producer who had a net worth of $500 thousand dollars. Ike Turner was born in Clarksdale, Mississippi to a Baptist minister. He is considered to be a pioneer of the fifties rock and roll. His roots, however, are found in blues, to which he returned at the late days of his career. Ike is most well-known for his work with his then wife Tina Turner (real name Anna Mae Bullock) with whom he formed the "Ike and Tina Turner" Revue which became a tremendous success by the end of the 60s. Being gifted with a tremendous talent, he learned how to play the piano and guitar at the early age of eight. His first recording, "Rocket 88″, was produced during his early twenties and is considered by many the first rock and roll song. He is known to have recorded for many record labels during the 1950s and 1960s. Turner, who won two Grammy Awards, was nominated for three more during his entire career. Cocaine and crack addiction and his abusive behavior ruined Ike´s career in the 1980's according to Tina Turner´s autobiography "I, Tina". He was convicted for several drug-related offenses and spent 18 months in prison. During his late career, he continued to perform as a stand man and recorded two successful award-winning albums. Turner died on December 12, 2007 in his home in San Marcos California at the age of 76. He was included in the Rock and Roll hall of fame in 2001. He got married at least five times throughout his life.
