The Queen of Rock’n Roll has died at 83.

Tina Turner, one of rock’s most famous voices has died after a long illness.

In a career spanning over 60 years, the American-Swiss singer won eight Grammys and has a star on both the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the St Louis Walk of Fame.

Her autobiography, I, Tina, was turned into the 1993 film “What’s Love Got To Do With It” about her turbulent relationship with ex husband Ike Turner.

She’s lived in Switzerland since 1994 with her music executive husband

Turner was diagnosed with intestinal cancer in 2016 and had a kidney transplant a year later.

She was known for such songs as Proud Mary, River Deep, Mountain High and We Don’t Need Another Hero.

Tina Turner and Canadian rocker Bryan Adams came together for “It’s Only Love” in 1985.

The rocking anthem earned a  Grammy nomination, and is fondly remembered by Bryan as his most memorable collaboration.

Adams is remembering the late icon on Twitter.

“My condolences to Erwin and Tina’s family. I’ll be forever grateful for the time we spent together on tour, in the studio and as friends. Thank you for being the inspiration to millions of people around the world for speaking your truth and giving us the gift of your voice. It’s Only Love and that’s all.” #tinaturner
