So I stumbled onto this, sorry for the graphics and such but well that's how it comes. You don't get the full interview at the end which is a shame but you get a flavor for it. I gotta say Marvin looks GANGSTA! I really loved that look he had going during that period. The thing is, his performances all leave me a bit melancholy because here was a great artist of his stature lowering himself in some ways just to keep up with the younger guys out there. That being said, I do wonder if Marvin had lived if he would've kept that look going for a while or go back to a more laidback style?

Anyways here's the clip:

Damn I didn't know he did Merv Griffin before his death! I'm kinda mad though, people forgot that Marvin very much went on a grueling schedule for much of 1983, he didn't have a chance to have a break because, in his words if he was alive, he would've said, "people want the money, they don't care about your psyche, you got the talent, get out there so we can make some money." But Marvin worked his butt off during 1982 and 1983 and of course it overwhelmed him as well as his own personal problems. But I agree his look is slamming here. He'd probably had kept the look if he was still alive after 1984, I definitely believe that. Marvin wanted to be timeless. No one wants to be a nostalgia act by the time they're 50 so I'm sure that was on his mind then.
