First Evel Knievel, now Ike Turner. Soon I won't have any idols left.

The best Ike Turner story may be a rock 'n' roll urban legend, but here it is anyhow. Little Richard -- it's usually attributed to him -- visited Ike Turner at his brand-new home at the height of his fame. Someone asked him later what it was like inside. "Man," he said, "I didn't realize you could spend a million dollars in Woolworth's."
