A Brief History of Marvin Gaye
Born and raised in Washington D.C., Gaye set out on his musical path as a session drummer who sometimes lent his baritone to doo-wop groups around his hometown. He worked closely with legendary bluesman Bo Diddley and even sang backing vocals for Chuck Berry before upping sticks to Detroit at the turn of the 60s.
Once he landed in the Motor City, Gaye began making a name for his fine self as a session musician for local label Tri-Phi Records. After a short audition at the house of Motown boss Berry Gordy, he got signed to the big leagues on the spot.
In case you’ve ever wondered, yep, he got plenty of stick for his last name once the limelight came calling. Originally spelt ‘Gay’, he added the extra ‘e’ to put an end to the ridicule and as a nod to Sam Cooke who did the same thing years earlier.
The music he produced for the following two decades speaks for itself. His earlier work and collaborations defined the Motown sound; the later stuff freed up his expression into jazz, funk, politics and sex.
By the time his dad – Marvin Gaye Sr. – put a bullet through his chest in 1984, Marvin’s star had burned brighter than any other soul artist before. Few artists leave a legacy so rich, but then there’s never been anybody quite like Marvin.
