I think they got that screaming style of singing from Little Richard.<quoted text>
Tina Turner, to me, is the greatest among female musicians. The Queen. She, Aretha and Janis are tops in general.

I wouldn't exactly call Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin or Janis Joplin musicians because they did not play instruments. It was their vocal style.
