yes, once again Bob must take a back seat when being compared to his lifelong partner and his "well-spoken"-ness.
He was certainly clear and spoke intelligent and well-thought out thoughts, it was just like pulling teeth to get them to come out of his mouth......You'd think that he'd done the "why are you doing it"/"why'd you do it" schtick some many times now that it would just flow out.......but apparently not without a guitar in his hands.

I asked him about it last night (he knows Weir fairly well) and he said that Bobby was as sharp as a tack in the green room right before the interview but when the lights and cameras went on, he thinks he just got nervous. TV cameras can do funny things to people, even rock stars who have been filmed before. I sat in on Steve's interview with him a couple years ago and Bobby was totally relaxed. It may have felt different to him this time because the last interview was basically shooting the s--- with Steve in broad generalities, and this was more specific and news-based. I can tell you from experience as a journalist that if you get a little hung up on one question, it doesn't tend to get any better moving forward.

I do it all the time...and I perform in a band...but there is something different about the podium and the large crowd...and I'm sure it's a hell of a lot different when someone is saying "lights, camera, action!" I wished it were smoother...but I ain't gonna give him a hard time about it. Nothing like delivering that line about a space ship and nobody even chuckles...that'll throw you off your game right from the get-go.
