I'll find more about MARVIN GAYE for this post, running into alot of his tunes the last few days. Just because I'm wondering about him.
O.K., Marvin Gaye had a violent home life as a boy and teenager. His Dad was very religious and strick and would beat him often, the only bright light in his early life was singing, it was encouraged in his church and by his mother. He left home as a teenager.
He signed a contract with TAMLA, a part of MOTOWN in 1960 performing jazz standards, and had zero interest in R & B, Soul, or Funk. As his Motown tunes became million dollar hits, it looks like he changed his mind. He then became known as the 'Prince of Soul' or the 'Prince of Motown
He sang duets with MARY WELLS and HERE, and TAMMY TERRELL and HERE. Terrell was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 1967. She had several operations that made it difficult for her to perform. She died on March 16th, 1970 of brain cancer.
Gaye left music because of depression after her death. He wanted to quit music and play football.
Then, I found this in WIKIPEDIA... " It was eventually decided that Gaye wouldn't be allowed to try out owing to fears of possible injuries that could have affected his music career."
So, he went back to work in music. It doesn't say 'who' decided that Gaye would not play football, but, it doesn't sound like Marvin Gaye to me, does it? Jan
