Topic: Marvin Gaye

The Late Super Great Crooner Marvin Gaye was born “Marvin Pentz Gay”  He later added an “E” to his last name because,  he was teased by it.  Gaye  was shot and killed 27 years ago by his own father,  Gaye was shot April 1, 1984 one day before his birthday which would have been today had he lived.

I was in San Monica when I heard the news,   I called my buddy Damita Jo Freeman of “Soul Train and told her what had happened,  Freeman thought since it was April Fool’s Day that someone was playing an awful trick on Marvin…

The world stopped once again when we found out it was true,  the man who bought Gaye into the world took him out!   In the end Marvin Sr.  died of brain complication.   Gaye was with Motown for many years as a matter of fact Gaye married Berry Gordy’s sister Anna Gordy,  Gordy was 17 years older than Marvin.  Marvin later married Janis, whom was linked the late Teddy Pendergrass,  Gaye’ s music will last forever, he and The Late Tammi Terrell will be in our hearts and Minds forever!
