Tina Turner and Erwin Bach married in 2013 after 27 years together. When the pair first met, Bach was a label executive at the European branch of Turner’s record label, EMI. He was sent by her longtime manager, Roger Davies, to pick her up from the airport. In the HBO documentary, Turner recalls instantly being drawn to him. “My heart went bah-boom,” she says. “It means that a soul has met, and my hands were shaking. And Roger said to me, ‘Tina, you ride with Erwin,’ and I wanted to go, ‘Yay!’”

Working as a Record Executive for over 30 years, Erwin Bach has produced music internationally with some of the 21st century’s most prolific artists. Director and chairman for music giant EMI in both Germany and Switzerland, Erwin has been instrumental in the careers of iconic musicians such as Paul McCartney, Queen, Lenny Kravitz, Herbert Grönemeyer, Radiohead, Robbie Williams, Pink Floyd and Tina Turner.
