Marvin Gaye is considered a legend, despite the fact he sometimes didn't show up for a few of the concerts he'd scheduled. On April 1, 1984, Marvin Gaye Sr. shot and killed his son after fight; the father claimed he acted in self-defence but would later be convicted of involuntary manslaughter. Three years after his death, Marvin Gaye Jr. was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
