I'd sure hate to see Bobby go down to some form of abuse. This sucks.
Such a long, long time to be gone, and a short time to be there...
I agree with Phil having a low BS threshold after all that has happened. I think if it was Bobby himself that got to this state that Phil would be pissed, but would probably still not want to air the band "dirty laundry" publicly. Unified front and all that jazz....strumminsix wrote:Jeffm, I like your line of deductive reasoning. In that same line (pun intended) I discount alcohol since I didn't hear him slurring. I've never known someone who is losing control of balance, hence muscles, not slur something fierce.
Having been the recipient of a spiked drink with with a tranq I can honestly say I recall my whole world slowing down and being in slow motion....
Regarding Phil... I can't see him protecting his brother if he got himself all fucked up. I guess after his trouble with alcohol, Jerry's addiction, watching ever keyboard player die or struggle as addicts til death he wouldn't put up with that shit anymore. I could be wrong.

just spoke with the guy from mcintosh who sent bobby his new mcintosh MC2102 TUBE POWER amp!
He didn't just forget the words. He couldn't read the teleprompter. He couldn't play. He almost fell over several times. He was out of it! I can deal with the occasional f-up w/ lyrics. This was a serious bummer. It would have been better if he hadn't shown up.
