Marvin Gaye and His Girls !!

Need I say anything about Marvin Gaye? There's much to read about this
veraciously talented man, so have at it, if you aren't familiar. The saddest
fact of his life is that he was murdered by his father:

At around 12:38 p.m. (PST) on April 1, 1984, while Gaye was in his
bedroom, his father Marvin Gay Sr. shot Gaye in the heart and then in
his left shoulder, the latter shot taken at point-blank range. Minutes
earlier, the two men had been involved in a physical altercation when
Gaye intervened in a fight between his parents. The first shot proved
to be fatal. Gaye was pronounced dead at 1:01 p.m. after his body
arrived at California Hospital Medical Center. -from Wikipedia
