– She was a great artist and I understand very well that her popularity spread all over the world, says longtime NRK music journalist Vidar Lönn Arnesen (82).

Tina Turner has been to Norway many times.

– We’d probably call her a friend of Norway, but I’ve never met her in person, or had any contact with her, says Lønn-Arnesen, known to many from the radio show “Ti i Skuddet” and the TV classic “Da Capo”.

He did not revolutionize the world of music, believes Lønn-Arnesen, who was born in 1940 – a year after Tina Turner.
