Marvin Gaye, 44

Marvin Gaye was a complex man with a multifaceted talent. The singer-songwriter had an ability to reach listeners with soulful tunes that could stir passion in the bedroom or protest in the streets. While he delivered a bevy of classic songs throughout his illustrious career, fans became all too familiar with the personal demons (drugs and depression) that plagued the Motown Records crooner. On April 1, 1984, Gaye was tragically shot and killed by his father Marvin Gay Sr., during a domestic dispute.
