Happy Birthday Cher, here’s Cher and Tina!

Cher and Tina Turner, Makin Music is my Business

It’s yet another phenomenal day for birthdays – Joe Cocker, Jimmy Stewart, and Busta Rhymes will all be spitting out candles and running away from a party in tears tonight. But we thought we’d focus on Cher, an amazing woman who is scaling the heights of 63 today. What a life that lady has enjoyed. She was a backing vocalist on many of the great early Phil Spector tracks – Be My Baby, You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling – she made millions as Sonny Bono’s leggy sidekick/wife in the 1970s, then she started dressing like an aggressive New York prostitute in the 1980s, and in the 1990s she had some kind of sonic mechanism attached to her throat so that she could sing like a robot. Hence, we thought we’d get her a gift. We headed out to a wasteland to fire machine guns, fiercely debating what to buy whilst obliterating old oil cans and burnt out cars, and it boiled down to a toss up between a big bath robe made from Terry Towelling, or an old clip from the 1970s of her and Tina Turner singing together. In the end we got her both. Happy Birthday Cher!
