MARVIN GAYE

Face: MATINEE IDOL
Body: PROPORTIONAL
Arms: PASSIONATELY MUSICAL
Personality: TEMPERAMENTAL
Distinguishing features: BEST VOICE IN HISTORY OF WORLD
Attainability: DEADED

Has there ever been a purer, more soulful, more beautiful voice than Marvin’s? I doubt it. His preternatural talent was obvious at a young age, and fame quickly beckoned for the junior Gaye. Motown made him, but his politically motivated and seminal album ‘What’s Going On’ remains his most moving work. Add into the mix some incredibly perfect white teeth, an enduring personal style (in London you will see at least 5 guys a day dressed as early-70s Marvin), a face like a movie star, and some killer charisma, and you have yourself a WOULD. We can try to forget about the later “going mental from cocaine abuse and attacking his father who subsequently shot him” stage.
