Ritz's book proved excellent fast paced reading and dug deep in the torment and paranoia Marvin felt from his first brush of success to his untimely death at the trigger finger of his lifetime nemesis, his father.
The book was gripping - as any good and great that Marvin achieved soon morphed into bad and poor in his own mind and into his acts of masochism that followed.
Although, being of course a huge Marvin fan, the book was rarely a pleasureable read it projected a truth and reality that was believable of a musician who's genius in undisputable.
Four stars - great!
Author Ritz reflects Gaye's life with honesty and candor. Ritz had been Marvin's biographer and friend for many years, and the countless hours they spent together shows through in the very personal and in-depth look into the life of Motown's most popular and controversial male artist.
This book offers very interesting candid insight into Marvin Gaye's life from birth to his untimely death, and is highly recommended reading.
