Meat the beat isn't talking about physical looks, he's talking about Gadd's pissed off expression on his face. I assume it was all the drugs at the time, as his moments of looking the most miserable was when he was at the pits of his substance dependency. And since he cleaned up circa 1987 he's been much more "normal" looking in his expressions.
For example, watch Grover Washington Jr's 1981 "In Concert"... Gadd smiles I think twice during the entire hour-long set.
