    I know many of you might not have been around but on April 1, 1984, Marvin Gaye's father fatally shot him after an argument that started after his parents squabbled over misplaced business documents. Gaye attempted to intervene, and was killed by his father using a gun that Marvin Jr. had given him four months before. Marvin Gaye would have turned 45 the next day.

    I can't let this slide. This post had been up for 26 hours prior to your response. WTF is with you?

    I know I had a moment of silence this morning because of it. And I heard Smokey sing. Of course, Marvin did too that day.
  6. To be fair Drip, I just saw this post about an hour ago.
    I don't wander off the first page of thread listings.

    Is there a statute of limitations on us having to offer an SJ statement of condolence?

    Can Gary Smith write it? Or does he need to work on his writing a bit before we give him such a monumental task?

    OK, so, due to my own lack of thoroughness in reading the board, I technically missed the actual anniversary by a day. It doesn't take away from my mourning.

    Brad Renfro's vocals were good in Sexual Healing
