In addition to his post-show speech to the Bonnaroo crowd, Bobby also addressed the Orlando massacre while being presented with the Les Paul Spirit Award.

(It would be dickish of me to make jokes, so I’ll just say that Bobby spoke wonderfully. He was very gracious and humble, and when he was done he put the award in his fanny pack, changed into his pajamas, and took the stage.)


  1. Is that shirt pink or purple? No snark, my eyes have a tendency to deceive me.

      Don’t you go starting that “The Dress” bullshit here! I will not have it.

      (I believe it is the same shirt he was wearing for the interview with Billy, which–to my eyes, at least– was a pale pink. I believe it is sold to men as “salmon” so they will think they’re not wearing pink.)

    • i say lavender.

      • I wasn’t sure of the name (light purple?) but once I saw your take, I’m sure you’re right. I neurologist wrote that women could distinguish between color shades significantly better than men. I’ve found this to be true, or better able than me at least.

    I assume that the award is for Bob’s overall ‘spirit’ and has nothing to do with him ever playing, or not playing, a Les Paul guitar.
