    Two super rock and rollers. Saw Tina perform at the 49er in '66 of '67 at El Monte.

    Never saw her live but she lit up Australia with her National Rugby League anthem - Simply the Best - filmed with some outstanding NRL rugby plays. She is seriously loved down here. It is so sad she died.....there are tons of tributes from everyone who knows her and TV specials for the rest of us. What a legend! No one down here is going to forget her anytime soon.

    I was that young......and gave Mick my last cigarette! BTW I also took the photograph, fond memories of the 60's and my short claim to fame.

    Wow! Great video! First time I've seen it. In WA we have no NRL team - so less commercials. NRL rocks....State of Origin tomorrow - game 2 of 3 in Brisbane. Queensland won the first - and expect they will win the second. The Queensland team is superb - and have been for years.
    All Blacks - best rugby team - for decades - that ever walked the Earth. I've watched them many times....they are magic on the field.

    I forgot to add...Did you know Dan Carter? He could kick a field goal (drop goal..penalty goal) thru molecules! What a legend. Best of the best.

    Cannot say I know him but I have met him, shook hands a couple times! Year was 2017. In the same building working for the team 5 days a week, 3 hours a day for one Month. Can say I have shared company with the entire team. Caught a whole lot of banter and much conversation. I have no images cause to have camera or cell phone while working, would be grounds for dismissal. I was a Manager at the 4 star hotel they stayed at. I was in charge of their breakfast, lunch and dinner menu and service, also had security responsibilities.

    As a rebel hippie teenager I remember in 1965 seeing one of the very first videos ever shown on "Top of the Pops" - this was Sonny & Cher and "I got you Babe". I was fascinated, had the same style as Sonny and quite fancied Cher. Then in 1966 a sensation appeared (actually exploded) on ToTP - Ike & Tina Turner with "River Deep, Mountain High". Loved that song ever since. Tina went through so much in her abusive relationship with Ike and the hotel scene in "What's Love Got to Do with It" is tough watching. Amazing woman.
