Bob's Back Story
In 1983 Rauschenberg had a solo show in Georgetown, and Jaffe was invited to a private dinner for him. This was Rauschenberg's so-called 'dandy period' and he was dressed in a lime green suit, lime green patent leather shoes and a green bolo tie. This was also during his drug period and as Jaffe approached, Rauschenberg had a drink in his left hand and was totally wasted. They got into a heated conversation and Rauschenberg told Jaffe to go fuck himself.
