"His life as a singer has come to the end. He won´t be able to sing again even if he recover from the damage in his brain." said his brother yesterday.

 

TV showed him singing on stage one day before the attack. He has an incredible voice. What a pity.

 Yea, that"s such a pity that he wont be able tos singing on the sage..You are right, He has an incredible voice..I think he is one of the best voice that history has ever seen.

Let´s hope God save his life and recover him from the damage in his brain.

How tragic! I am speechless, how could someone do such mean act. I love his singing and have a few of his CDs. I hope he is not suffering too much and his family and those who love him will be strong and brave.

Condolences to his family.

Dozens of people rushing to an Istanbul hospital Monday morning to await information on a man suffering from gunshot wounds suggested that the victim was no ordinary patient. Indeed, the manifest worry for the condition of İbrahim Tatlıses, one of Turkey’s best-known singers, confirmed that the “emperor’s” popularity is not just due to his voice, according to experts.

 

Tatlıses wrote his own rags-to-riches story in the mid-1970s, Pekşen said. Tatlıses was a young construction worker in his hometown, the southeastern province of Şanlıurfa, that was legendarily overheard singing to himself one day; he was quickly encouraged to realize his musical potential in the big cities. He released his debut record, “Ayağında Kundura,” when he was just 23, and rose to superstardom almost overnight.

“Frankly, İbrahim Tatlıses’ vocal technique and power of his voice is far ahead of Orhan Gencebay’s, along with many others. He has an amazing voice and has sung perfectly, whatever he sung,” Dilmener said. “But still, he is not as accepted as the others. It is not due to his artistic capacities, but his rude attitude.”

Claims that he verbally and physically abused his former lovers, Derya Tuna or belly dancer Asena, were published in the Turkish tabloid media on almost a daily basis. Last year, it was also reported that he called an 8-year-old listener a “little bitch” while he was on stage.

“That kind of sexism could have been ignored in the 1970s or 1980s, but nobody tolerates it now,” Dilmener said. “It makes it easier for us to scorn him, instead of loving him.”

However, Tatlıses’ shooting is likely to create a warmer atmosphere.

Cüneyt Özdemir made a reference to Charles De Gaulle’s famous “Sartre is France” statement on defending the famous philosopher and wrote “Tatlıses is Turkey” in daily Radikal. Ertuğrul Özkök of daily Hürriyet wrote that he could be one of the key figures in promoting Turkey’s unity.

“From İzmir to Ankara, Edirne to Kars, Şanlıurfa to Tekirdağ, a nation is praying for you, İbo,” Özkök wrote in his column earlier this week. “He has the heart to make both a Turk and a Kurd laugh or cry. He has the roughness to make a Turk and a Kurd angry, as well.”

İbo is a Kurd ethnically but he is the most famous Turkish singer in Turkic republics where, when they speak of Turkish music, he is the first name mentioned.

I never liked his music and was quite surprised why so many women love him when I saw him. Still, it´s always a tragedy when a human being´s life is in danger.

Armegon - are you saying it might have been a mafia assassination?

Turkish police are investigatiing a possible connection with the attack and PKK. Prior to the attack,he was about to apply for becoming a candiate in AKP´s list for the upcoming elections in June this year.

 

PKK may have seen it unacceptable as he surely would draw many Kurdish votes to AKP.

As a matter of fact, 4 people in connection with PKK have been jailed.

 

BDP (the extension of the terrorist PKK organisation) leader has denied the charges as expected.
