"Marvin Gaye's life and brilliant career were cut tragically short on April 1, 1984 - one day before his 45th birthday - when he was shot and killed by his own father. Now, for the first time ever, Marvin Gaye's story is told in intimate detail by a member of his own family. Frankie and Marvin Gaye were close from childhood until Marvin's death. Frankie was at Marvin's side when he died, and only Frankie heard Marvin's deathbed confession. Full of never-before-told personal anecdotes, many correcting previously published accounts, this book takes you behind the scenes, from Marvin's childhood, when he had a penchant for getting into trouble, through his spectacular success at Motown and then Columbia, his stormy relationships with women, and finally his descent into drugs and despair."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
