5. 5. Tammi Terrell's Collapse
Gaye gained his first taste of success shortly after his signing in 1962 when 'That Stubborn Kinda Fellow' reached number 8 on the R&B chart. He went on to achieve much success as a duo with Tammi Terrell, with hit singles including the classic 'Ain't No Mountain High Enough'. But in October 1967 tragedy struck when Terrell fell into Gaye's arms live onstage - she was rushed to hospital where she was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour. Gaye was devastated.
