Although primarily playing trumpet, he also played trombone, guitar, percussion, and provided backing vocals for the band. According to former front man Danny Elfman in 1983, Turner "keeps an eye on us and makes sure that we don't get too far out of hand" and "he could spank every one of them [...]", with the exception of saxophonist Sam "Sluggo" Phipps.
