“Don’t Mean Nothing” was the first single by singer/songwriter/producer Richard Marx from his self-titled triple platinum 1987 debut album. The song also features a heavy dose of the Eagles. Joe Walsh played slide guitar while Randy Meisner and Timothy B. Schmit sang background vocals on the song. It was a solid debut for Marx. The single peak at number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and became a number-one hit on Billboard’s Album Rock Tracks chart.
Do you recognize the woman in the video? It’s Richard Marx’s future first wife, Cynthia Rhodes. Yes, the same Cynthia Rhodes from last week’s Throwback Video, Toto’s “Rosanna.” Cynthia also played the part of ‘Penny Johnson’ in the movie Dirty Dancing. The couple was married from 1989 to 2014. If you’re keeping score at home, Richard is currently married to former MTV personality, Daisy Fuentes.
