Chris : I’ve got a text in. Can you please ask Marvin how Aston is now after his bad tooth?
Marvin: Yeah, he is much better. We were in Miami about 5 days ago and we were going to a radio station and he was in absolute agony. Literally I thought he was gonna bust in to tears. He was holding his jaw and he couldn’t talk and you know that’s not like Aston, he has go to be able to talk. And we were just like he needs to go to the dentist, so he went to an emergency dentist and he basically had some sort of abscess or root canal. You don’t even want to know how much it cost him to have that done.
Chris: Is that the profits from the first album gone?
Marvin – Yeah probably.
