I only met you a couple of times. I will never forget how nice a person you were. Unfortunately, due to my schedule, we lost contact and I missed out on a party you were having.
When I hear your music, I will be thinking of you

Completely enamored with the joy on his face when he sings. I was just old enough to watch Soul Train when the Spinners performed.

The silkiest,coolest, smoothest performer of the era. So glad I had a few chances to see him and the Spinners live.

RIP Bobby, you have been such a joy to listen to. I had a crush on you from the moment I saw you. I constantly played the Spinners music and will continue enjoying the Spinners soulful voices. The youngsters today has really missed out on the excitement of the Spinners.
