i didn't notice any slurring or anything of that nature. lol i was in his way during his sons fight taking pictures before i saw him, and he said "excuse me son, could you please move". then i apologized and told him he was one of my favorites and asked for a picture - he smiled and was more than happy to take the picture. he was very soft spoken, and didn't say much during the brief convo i had with him, and it was kinda loud. . . but he sounded ok.
