This is not my biggie post. That would take days or even weeks of research. Instead I suggest you approach his life in an appropriate manner. If you know nothing, get the dvd (not bad) or read the wikipedia page, or both.
If you are a little more advanced, I recommend this incredibly smooth, uplifting, classic, well-produced gem from Buscrates of Pittsburgh. He did an interview on MG's blog last April, and you can grab contact info etc. from there.

RIP to one of the best who did it.
