  10. Came from link on huffpo. A good read however I feel like there is more to the story (not in a bad way), just wish you were able to recall more details. To say that you "kinda" remember "bottles and pipes" in the hotel room is a little misleading, and what exactly are you eluding to. Not bashing, just curious as to what was meant with that foggy memory.

    1. Good morning! I wish I could remember more, but all I've got is a visual of Bobby sitting on the bed, a collection of empties on the desk, and at least two pipes on the nightstand. I'm pretty sure that they were meant for weed, not crack - Bobby would have been a teenager at the time. (I was there to collect him for a flight we were about to miss - he wasn't too happy to see me.)


      Thanks for reading and thanks for commenting - maybe I should take the reference to pipes out.

    1. Good question. He was definitely a talented performer; he would probably have memorized the lyrics or learned them through repetition. As for writing lyrics, he didn't - his songs were written by others. (He has a few credits as a co-writer, but his contributions were likely minor.) Thanks for reading.

    Thank you. I needed to hear that.
