I've been in a Marvin Gaye mood for the past couple of days.
In addition to listening to his music, and copping a t-shirt, I was thinking about his music and wondering how music would be today if he was still alive.
Since doing research and listening to his "Live At The Copa" album (yes kids, I said album; I'm an classic soul and old school head and if u don't like it, too damn bad) I began to think about how things would have been had Motown allowed him to release ballads and had his brother and former secuirty guard gotten him into rehab before he was killed, and had his mother found the strength to divorced his crazed father?
I remember reading an issue of Ebony Magazine and a female wrote a letter about the story that was written about the late Motown Prince, and in the letter, she spoke about how the mother could have divorced his father, and used a scripture to support her claim, and many people I've spoken to said that the same thing; had she divorced that man, Marvin would have been alive today, and he probably would have gotten himself together, and would have made sure she was taken care of financially, spritiually and emotionally.
If Marvin was alive, he still would have been a sexy man. When I did a tribute to him on college radio years ago, my friend Fedencia spoke about his looks, and saying how females was attending his concerts just to look at him. Women would still be fighting to get a chance to hug and kiss him, while Gay men would be fantasizing about getting it on with him.
If Marvin was alive, he would still be making quality music and be singing with some of today's hottest female artists.
