Who is Tina Turner’s husband Erwin Bach?
Born under the sign of Aquarius on the 24th of March 1956, in Cologne, then West Germany, Erwin Bach is a 62-year-old Caucasian music producer and actor, but perhaps best known from marrying the legendary singer-songwriter performer Tina Turner. He has had a number of his own successes too throughout his career, having produced music for numerous music production companies, having been active in the often lucrative music production business since the 1980s.
Early Life and Education
Unfortunately, there is at the moment no information about Erwin’s early life, ranging from the names of his parents and their professions, any siblings, to his early hobbies, interests and education, but the assumption is that he holds a college degree in order to hold the positions he has. At some point in his life, he moved to Switzerland and obtained Swiss citizenship, but nothing else can be said with certainty about Erwin’s early life and education.
CareerErwin started his music production career back in 1985, as a record executive in a thus far unspecified company. Over the course of his career, he held various prestigious positions, such as with EMI Germany as the divisional managing director, and later with the same company in Switzerland as the managing director of EMI Recorded Music. Still, none of these successes amount to that which he achieved after meeting Tina Turner, and starting to work with her. Additionally, he has helped multiple musicians rise to stardom under his management, such as Manu Chao, Radiohead, Queen, Pink Floyd, Pet Shop Boys, and naturally Tina Turner, although she was already a star prior to meeting him. Due to the lack of information, not much else can be said about his career.
Most media sources state that Erwin met Tina at an EMI record label party in 1985, but Tina Turner herself says that they met some time earlier, when she landed at Heathrow Airport and he arrived to give her a ride. He stretched his arms out and gave her a big ‘Hello’, to which she stepped back in confusion as she didn’t know him yet, but they made introductions and Tina felt attracted to him from that point, and when they got into the car and made their way to her destination, she claims her heart was already beating rapidly, stating it was love at first sight.
The Second HusbandTina was married to Ike Turner before she met Erwin, previous to which she was in a relationship with Raymond Hill for a time, and they had a son named Craig in 1958. They broke up at an unknown date, and after some time, she began dating Ike Turner; they dated for a few months before ultimately getting married, which at first looked like a good decision for the both of them. However, after Tina gave birth to their son named Roland, Ike turned abusive towards her, and started resorting to physical violence to resolve their disputes. Tina eventually filed for divorce, and even though this decision freed her from an abusive marriage, it also cost her most of her fortune, which was lost to Ike in the divorce settlement.
An Actor As Well
Even though he’s originally a music producer, Erwin has a total of five credited titles under his name on the Internet Movie Database. He featured as himself in two documentaries and a TV series, while he also produced the documentary entitled “Tina Turner”, which is now in pre-production. He also had a genuine role in “Maldito Amor: Demasiado Tarde” in 1999.
After dating for twenty-seven years, Erwin finally proposed to Tina when she turned 50 years old. As the media has it, since his English wasn’t really good to begin with, he specifically asked ‘Will you marry with me?’. It is also said that Tina initially accepted his proposal in fear that he would end the relationship, still having various doubts about their future marriage. Still, her decision turned out to be a good one, and they married on July 4 2013 in a private ceremony on the shores of Lake Zurich in Switzerland. Tina wore Giorgio Armani’s unique design at her wedding, and all of the 120 invitees were asked to wear white. Additionally, they had another marriage ceremony in the Buddhist tradition.
What is Erwin Bach’s Net Worth?
Have you ever wondered how rich Erwin Bach is, as of mid-2018? According to various authoritative sources, it has been estimated that the current total of Erwin’s accumulated wealth is close to $50 million, largely aided by his numerous successes in the music industry, while the greatest contribution has come from his long-term position as Tina’s manager and advisor. As his career continues to develop, the said amount can be expected to increase.
Concerning the physical attributes of the musical producer, it is reputed by various sources that his height is 5ft 8ins (1.73m), but no other statistics are available. His hair is black and his eyes are dark brown, while his body shape is generally described as regular.
Social Media Presence
Due to the major influence of social networks, it is nowadays a regular thing for active music producers to nourish a close and active relationship with their fans, for the sake of increasing the popularity of the companies they’re working for, and thus their own net worth. However, it looks like Erwin doesn’t care much for this celebrity trend, as his presence on the main social media networks is non-existent; any accounts on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram are inaccessible to the public.
