*The late Ike Turner will be celebrated in his hometown of Mississippi this weekend.

Officials in Clarksdale will gather with music fans to unveil two markers honoring the artist and his musical legacy.

The event will coincide with the 23rd annual Sunflower River Blues and Gospel Festival, dedicated this year to “Rocket 88,” the 1951 Turner tune often cited as the first rock ‘n’ roll song.
