Ike Laid Out

12/21/2007 12:58 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ike Turner made a final appearance yesterday in a spectacular gold-studded lilac suit, with a golden Fender Stratocaster by the side of his coffin.

The elaborate silver coffin was topped with a massive spray of white flowers at the Angelus Funeral Home on Crenshaw Blvd., where hundreds filed past to pay their final respects. TMZ spotted accused murderer Phil Spector in the queue.

even Ike Turner deserves better than this! I was scrolling through and had to see this, it is in such poor taste that I did something that I have never done, I posted a comment!
Celebrity gossip sites are supposed to be entertaining and if ANYONE is entertained by this then heaven help us all

What do someone else posting this photo have to do with the type of person he was. They did the same thing for James Brown. So now what, is it just a BLACK thing!!!!!! The man is gone, that's the bigger picture.

This is just tacky and wrong....will not be back to this site....I don't think we need to see this....very sad that someone here would make the decision to post this picture. I agree with Margarita "You should be ashamed of yourselves TMZ".

WOW! So many people who are so judgmental. To each his own, I suppose. Harvey is a lawyer. He should know if something is or isn't legal to do; such as posting a picture of the dead. Who cares, people? Honestly, if you are so bitter and think this is so horrible, why do you visit this site? You are all probably the same jackasses who listened to Howard Stern and then complained to the FCC because you didn't know how to change the station on your own. Get a life or shove a can of Raid up your bumm to make the bug in there die already!

TMZ - you guys rock - you listened to us who were asking for a picture and we got it - now that's customer service! Rock on!
