What's goin' on?


Soul singer Marvin Gaye died on this day in 1984, one day before his forty-fifth birthday.

Gaye's clergyman father shot and killed him after an argument.

Gaye was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987.

"Music is one of the closest link-ups with God that we can probably experience," Gaye said. "I think it's a common vibrating tone of the musical notes that holds all life together."
