    Very cool indeed. If I ever build a house, there will be secrets like these in it (if I have any choice in the matter).

    Marvin Gaye's recording studio in Hollywood has a secret passageway hidden behind a book shelf. It leads to a hidden upstairs apartment. I got a chance to see it in action (and see the apartment) when we were installing artwork at the studio one night.

    Was this hidden apartment used for living only or as a working place?

    It's my understanding the apartment was a place where Marvin could get some sleep or freshen up during long recording sessions, and also a place to hide away and entertain the ladies. The studio itself has a nice living room and kitchen on the ground floor for everyone else.
