Others and neighbor that yeah that doctors. The London called mail on line. You can email. And they agree it's very -- tunnels or as they often do when -- talked to neighbors. -- Withdrawn it was a shell of his former self. Numbers sociable and not very of the last year urges. I don't this year here few months. Between the Minnesota is on the street store and it's awful. Korea is -- isn't he went from rehab Arctic ice cream. Ice cream ice and they let them do that -- do is filtered latest. Well you know we don't you guys. -- -- at these places you can go visit oh. And they are asked you when you come back yet. -- look at your eyes it's. -- he was had money issues which is me he's now. And mind boggling what was -- in the biopic of -- -- -- you know that the guy who did one of Gene Siskel. You love someone yes -- Speech beat her cash to that is traditional will not real argument real document to play rubble and there's a lot -- there's a lot of radio. And you know between the so epic its. What we do in these cases we do all the time in this business and you know some people play along some -- Tom Brady doesn't play along. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- To the produces is some talk and try and talk and look for cuts and Terrell for. It's Espinosa and that exhibit six. Adam. -- that put. There is easy we wanna -- guys to the guys and you tried to do with Tom Brady and he wanted no part of that he doesn't like to compare he won't compel a guess -- compares -- -- call me comparator apple -- you don't but I I preface that by saying obviously a half since I. -- has been about fifty mobile quarterbacks I've -- more than a little little. A not that little he's not politically who is six feet -- ladies thanks Russell -- -- -- -- -- Brady up in Russia will scream as the heart one more clinically apparent to anybody and he wouldn't play along I knew that before you might -- -- you mentioned I'm not early in -- -- -- -- he's not gonna -- people like earlier in the -- doesn't like -- magically doesn't like it's -- him active -- earlier in the interview that's also played their eyes -- and back up question because buck -- -- -- Yeah I think it's a little buck little little tickle -- -- honored -- in the -- Around -- that in no transgender but it's not I that was a fascinating discussion at the say the -- has. Transgender -- friends. -- seat like a transvestite. Has just dress up line that's like play time right but there's there's a little -- buzzes -- the great always it was I was surprised I think he's so baucus so insulated. He thinks that you know meeting one is no -- He has won -- -- I'm not sure I've ever seen one. The casino there was that -- there was then you'd -- but don't tell a guy I used to guide me I mean they don't tell you that now. Until ultimately look. There will never want in your life what's that I am not from the -- for a those people -- the true gender crowded and a little biased along with us you know let's talk about progress is made me that mark was. Stunned that you don't have any transgender friends who was it was a dumb people Richard and my dynamic -- people would pretend you know army radio guy as the morning guys -- I do I remember that and transgender fan I'm transgender. And I -- -- -- -- anti depressants because I'm just like -- Willie -- a -- Emphasis this outsiders as -- loneliness. And Brady wouldn't play along. There is they'll -- I'm rob and there is none. And and they love to say Jonathan Winters and I and I said that's ridiculous. Jonathan Winters -- believe not coming at me on Twitter -- thank him. What dramatic role Jonathan Winters. Mean honestly what movie. He cannery. Robin Williams -- Harry I I've put put put him in the dead poet's society awakening make him that guy. You know put him in awake and important for our photo and maybe maybe Patch Adams he could pull that off. That you can comfortably with just make movies Susan I just have mad mad mad world was so so I don't I don't Matt read you rest your case that's all I've got the three singles as well and got a job that -- of these guys everybody pretends they think -- what -- -- you think -- -- I was when I I believe I -- -- fourteen -- Jonathan -- -- the -- I believe that that Robin Williams was influenced or I believe he's a fan I believe he was. In awe of the guy when he met him because it was one of his idols. But Robin Williams surpassed him in a thousand times over. And that's not a good -- -- you the best compromise mine would be Tom Hanks as you. -- up with this particular sitcom role and people think you know games can count today and then. You know twenty years later from a range factor Gerri we talked about is just blew it better range than rob Williams. While there's there's guys there's guys I mean Tom Hanks do you think you could and obviously he's gonna save private Ryan do the rubber went out and say well probably ought to Iowa but was -- -- comics and it is good again it's on. The bag you know Williams creepy. Yeah creepy -- -- remember he dug in his own darkness. Or you're right done would be in May not as well with them right and he screamed and all that but I not I don't know but just so we hate that. So remarkably you know unique. Original. And you know it was kind of overrated that he was so unscripted and he was mr. -- -- Robert Waltz right and in. There's a name passed and he used to he workload for them or Vietnam when Adrian obviously you know what he did a little bit of that but that's overrated. You give him a little bit a direct action to everybody needs a script yeah he could do it once a while I could board buddies -- -- at stand up and that's not all not all -- he was you can amused brilliantly gifted. Wells did -- about mount Rushmore comics he's up there. And when you consider that you know what is worst role in my mind once more. Do I watch. To stick to whoever is just the -- and -- it's not new is his sausage and plan and stuff like 99 garments to have him here now I didn't hear it but. You you always wanna come up with comps. And directed pic of role that rob wings played yanks could have played not as well but he could see him in -- it's thanks in. -- -- to society. And in the wake up maybe not as good. There's no roll waves literacy. -- that we couldn't. Couldn't -- done -- He's right you know. -- what about Wallace's last sitcom called crazy people agree on the crazier if he's gonna article that has actually watch the first one because he was and of course you know fascinate will be the mental illness aside he he -- 35 million dollar home. And he and he couldn't afford you know he was selling it because you can afford welcome Robin Williams and -- know cocaine console. -- Robin Williams -- he goes broke awkwardly divorces. Our troops hello I'm not Larry king and eight the top seed broke a much money problems your audience in his life. -- can get 300 million did you get that little IB Diem thing you know got the box office of every movie -- and I do at least a 150. You are thirty million in his 2008. Said that mean I made. -- -- me so much money. A -- Back and it continues to -- in Anthony's that is Teddy Roosevelt which in and ideas but it is due out. You don't know -- up he'd. It's that Stiller catches and a -- but still like. Two days work as part three but I've got -- -- don't read about the money voice over people make a saint Denis Leary. To -- -- house. I see voice all her bachelor's my pay for a house. And like in -- like that some magic panic -- -- -- -- Then it brought a fellow shortly do you really need in the -- enemy could not have. You know Gary penguins do that it would work -- would. -- -- they probably -- for a little less might. Not a track album art but this you know I think it just -- if Robin Williams died of in a car accident. Or even an overdose of Phillips -- -- and death. Wouldn't be nearly as fast as the industry the idea that discs superstar megas. All time great he's eating at his refusal. -- patent life. Strike before before hanging it was after. Africa that was amazing. What a -- -- His wife is that it. Has applied his wife was sleeping in her bedroom -- separate bedrooms. Which you pick would make people happy that year -- but not. At Augusta and think about pick up. The second. Over you know at that point yet it's that don't know about this over the years takes all the pilots. Your whole life. Trying to get apartment. Place buyers get married in you know but too big east with a -- split -- You don't you really wanna know why. So he can procreate and -- and that's done and you can I've done that. Coddle you can do that you can use them on on on the don't see where you're rather guess bat yes that would you I wouldn't I would. I had a problem -- A moment. Lonely period just say. This about statements like swords they sleep you know it's brushes it definitely. Obama wanted if you wanna do it -- so rob is a separate bedrooms they go to bed separately. At 1030 minute before I guess in the eighties. Drank in its Norton some easily great sleepers press. Like a guy who has eight hours back I know what they -- is that the has assistant that's -- was -- at 1145. Expect it to white at the -- -- wife looked at 10:30 next morning just the -- -- sleep. This means it's about we usually Michael Jackson. He's going to bed when -- why would point out of bed at 1030. That -- save their marriage that you'd ever slept eight straight now life -- -- -- pro -- at six. One he's a guy -- -- up all. -- pacing. Up and uh oh I have no problem with discussing. Suicide like. Was Jeffords matchup it's political power. Wetzel strong. I think there's an awful but Tina do you not have a problem. Some somewhat of a problem. With the glorification. As does this -- not. Tell myself I'm I love them but think of my best -- in the messages cents. It wouldn't you prefer at some point that that the some deterrent deterrent to some. Sensitive. Not him not glorifying the forty. -- with a -- like. Dino Philip Seymour on elements that and yes that had a problem that I'm bad at the relief as -- I think he honestly -- as well I believe I believe it. It was so devastating and so on is nothing is done and the use Don. Yeah failures like you know what. Get some kids that money issues. I just don't notice I mean by definition can be no logical trying to follow -- can't be too -- coincidences it's an acceptance personal worst mental illness. But wouldn't you love the CD can hold of them and rams can't do this you have kids yet happened isn't that. -- about it that night. Is that which separate Smith and others trying to say. Don't. Hold him up on pedestals and he was. He was brilliant in this act -- final act was part of the in this fascinating mind. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- When you put them on mount Rushmore when we sit here and just raved about everybody raves about them. Is there not. Is there anyone is there anyone in the next celebrity like he -- -- he married yet to carry at some moments yes and money issues divorces there is there anyone out there he delegates at their in their room they're gone I'm thinking well. If I do this. Second allotments things we. If we can be glorified -- -- there is such a funk they just want to do it's not a vote and yet it is -- don't know that. I I agree -- you honest to god do you there's no explaining that you don't know that you weren't there he went in obviously not mean you are right. -- -- Daschle put it why can't we discussed this this is obviously in radio should it's like let's say you can't discuss that same. I've only got three I think the word cowardice stoop. But -- now is the itself which is stupid tipped. Well it's obviously selfish obviously -- I get to that he's got edition of self -- and I understand it was what I hear that I -- look at the guys that asks if you do something to relieve your own pain itself doesn't mean right right or wrong on its you know by definition it's selfish you have kids you guys and you gonna have grandkids. You know you lovely wife you have in life. Find it was as you have me you have but -- throw out the window and it this excuse but it is not throw out the window when yours when you mentally. I don't hate that saying minutes then it's right or wrong thing it's out what you thought it was an easy -- easy excuse for things that the material. Well no alcoholism drug abuse and I have a problem when the call that disease right hip problem when they use the same word for that is used for its it to. -- game -- in the infusion and right now the Jimmy Fund buying -- some semantic argument gets it and I am yeah I agree this I don't I don't wanna use the same work. And I know guy and I've known -- few guys man and probably known more. Where they because they can fall back in the east is east and they say -- could help off the wagon again yeah but I couldn't help. He has to be some tough love at some point we say you can help. Yes you have to fight it you had that clearly rob Williams had a tough. 2006013. Re you went away a lot to try to eighty probably 1981 regret it Iverson's it's the most fascinating thing in the world -- the world a car accident wouldn't be nearly as fascinating. And I think it does bring awareness to it. You know people look around today at it you know maybe their men's tour. On to our image appear to be shell as the neighbor says Robin Williams as and I got to help not gonna help. Does it help when you glorify. It now I don't think it does not act out the -- -- -- -- Which glorified commits it was Glor finding career before. Always reminds him Neil Young glorifying it in a way you know severe issues. It's true. Resentment -- that is the that was senate glorifying this lunatic yes who. And -- and have now. He could always you know that was John Belushi glorified. Yes they -- but that wasn't suicide that was right away he wasn't in the Egan and his wrists with a -- Orleans it's -- similar rumblings too that always had to be an. Easy it is human speed seeing spade talk about the cities like he'd be with the music welcomes -- People -- decent -- operatic up. And you knew he couldn't last I knew that no one could distinguish and it is a good explanation. From you one of wins and finally says -- can't do this can't be Robin Williams anymore.
