question Addictive personality?
« Thread started on: May 4th, 2012, 8:29pm »

You know... I have read about Marvin's story for years and I have always seen his story as one who basically has a personality that is addictive, meaning whatever they get into, they latch on to it for dear life and is' easy to see how that could be true for Marvin considering his choice of religion, the women he desired, the music he craved, even drugs, even sexual activity. I never hear people say that about Marvin but do you guys think he had an addictive personality?

I don't think his personality about drugs, sex, religion, or what have you was any different than most people. I think his was just put more in the spotlight, especially after he died, everyone wanted to see a complicated man, and that's just what the media tried to give them. Almost Everyone in music, especially rock stars, were going through the majority of what Marvin was feeling and experiencing. Sadly, it just got the worst of him. However, Marvin did love what he did, and he was one of the few artist to speak so openly about his personal feelings. Others worked hard to protect their images while going through similar struggles. Marvin is one of the few artist that was not afraid to say what was on his mind, be it music, drugs, sex, or God.

You nailed it on the head.

I kinda buy into the "complicated man" story but not because I believe everything the media and such say but rather I tend to find connections in everything in Marvin's life. I do think that he was one of the few "real" people in the music industry. By real I mean someone who wasn't afraid to tell it the way he saw and felt it even if meant marring his public persona.
