Bob Gruen's Photo Files

Photo of the Day!

Feb. 23, 2002, Paris, France - I was in Paris this week and went to see Ike Turner at the Lioniel Hampton Lounge in Le Madison Hotel. He did one of the best sets I've seen him do in years, playing his "Rocket 88", the first ever Rock & Roll song. He also did a great blues version of Alice Cooper's "Only Women Bleed" well as the Jazz number "Mercy,Mercy,Mercy"


Audrey Madison sings with Ike's show wihch includes the Ike & Tina hits," Nutbush City Limits", "River Deep, Mountain High", and "Proud Mary" She left the crowd yelling for more.
