Interviews were very important to Bobby. Being perceptive and sharp, he used them to express his thoughts and emotions, openly and honestly, on many topics and issues. When you listen to Bobby's voice, it's hard not to notice how sensitive and vulnerable his responses could be.
Be sure and check out the "Friends Talk About Bobby" section. Here you can get a strong sense of his individuality from some of the people closest to him.
