Marvin Gaye and band rehearses “I Want You” before concert



In 1981, Marvin Gaye and his band played Ostend, Belgium, during a European tour. Before the show, the group rehearsed his monster funk ballad “I Want You” in what is apparently a hotel conference room. It’s truly a mind-blowing performance from Gaye, who effortlessly croons and directs the band while lounging on the couch.

  1. I think that’s Deon Estus on bass! That guy is an amazing bass player and musician overall! Quite the career! I knew he worked with George Michael and was a member of Brainstorm, but didn’t know he also worked with the great Marvin Gaye!

  2. That’s Rick James
