Tina Turner, 25 November 1967 "Tina Turner is a fantastic woman. I like to call her my other wife; she's been married twice before me and has three children. We've been together for almost ten years now." - David Bowie.
The first female artist to be featured on the cover of Rolling Stone was Tina Turner. The issue came out on November 25, 1967. Like many men in rock 'n' roll at the time, Bowie had taken up with Turner after divorcing his first wife Patti. They had one son together but it didn't last. In April 1969, just over a year after appearing on the cover of RS, Turner married Jim Marshall, lead guitarist for The Jimmy Marshall Group. He died in August that same year due to a heart attack caused by cocaine abuse.
Turner released several albums during her time with Bowie.
Her rock and blues fusion impacted both male and female performers. Her breakthrough came in 1967, when she performed with Big Brother and The Holding Company at the Monterey Pop Festival. In 1969, she also performed at Woodstock. In 1970, she was at the pinnacle of her popularity when she died of a drug and alcohol overdose. She was 26.
Judith Ann Hillier was born on January 4th, 1945 in Los Angeles, California. She was the only child of Earl "Ed" Hillier, a drummer who played with artists like Sonny & Cher, and Peggy Lee, and his wife Lillian, a singer who had some success as a solo artist. When Judith was three years old, her father joined a new band led by Jimi Hendrix, and they toured Europe for two years.

In 1966, after graduating from high school, Judith began working as a backup dancer for The Monkees. She appeared in several episodes of this popular television series.

Morrison, Mary Anne Fitzgerald (born 21 January 1948), known as the Lady Morrison of Lambeth, is a British socialite and artist. She and her husband, Charles, Lord Morrison of Lambeth, are believed by some media sources to be among those who have met with Queen Elizabeth II to discuss becoming her new first couple after Prince Philip and Princess Margaret.
She was formerly married to Peter Wentworth, 11th Marquess of Linlithgow, with whom she has two children: a son, Charles Alexander John Wentworth, and a daughter, Lady Gabriella Victoria Wentworth. The couple divorced in 1987. Before marrying the marquess, she was married for three years to Antony Armstrong-Jones, 1st Earl of Snowdon, who was an equerry to the Queen's father, King George VI.
Her interest in art began at an early age when she learned how to paint by watching her father, Francis John Fitzgerald, who was an Irish portrait painter. In 1969, she went to live in Paris where she attended the École des Beaux-Arts and lived an extravagant life.
