Marvin Gaye

The Prince of Motown spent a few turbulent years in the Air Force as a teenager before faking a mental illness to get a discharge. His wish was granted and he went on to become a musical legend. Years later, his commanding officer said in an interview that Gaye often refused to follow orders. Perhaps we'll get a glimpse into this part of his life in one of the several biopics currently in the works about the Motown legend?
