RIP Marvin Gaye
The greatest to ever do it.
His tragic passing will forever stand out in my memory—I was actually outside that house that day, waiting for my mother to come back; she'd quickly pulled over and ran up the drive when we passed the assembled news vans and police. I didn't learn for years who that man I'd met briefly a few months prior was; and wouldn't know that they were close for years after that. But this isn't that story. Rest In Peace.
