Ibrahim Tatlises: Sweet voice name, sweet voice by nature

If the audio stops playing, press stop and allow time for the stream to load.

In honour of Ibrahim Tatlises (aka. Abraham Sweetvoice), who was savagely gunned down as he left a television studio this week, we present 50 minutes of songs about rock and roll's turbulent relationship with guns.

Ibrahim Tatlises is a national treasure; a singer, an entertainer, a heart throb; a man who paid someone to kneecap his ex-wife and who's last text message before he was shot in the head was to Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan. Apparently, he has miraculously awoken, and what was the first thing he asked for? Raw liver. Now that – Lady-Gaga-my-arse – is what I call a star!
